Virgin Media Announces Plans to Roll out 100 Mbps Broadband

It now seems that Virgin Media has started rolling out its super fast 100 Mbps broadband connection to some parts of the UK. The company is promising a connection speed that is 20 times faster than those currently variable.

According to Virgin Media, people in Heckmondwike, Barry, Farnborough, and Colchester will be able to subscribe to this broadband service. This service was first announced back in October of 2010 and will now be available on Virgin’s fiber optics-based network to homes and business all over the place.

Virgin Media claims that people will be able to access the web, stream videos and browse the web at lighting fast speeds. Virgin also point out that these connections will have the ability to increase to 400 Mbps in the near future.

Consumers in the areas that are wishing to surf the web at these ultra fast speeds will only have to pay £45 per month. This same service will be available for £35 when purchased with a phone connection.

Of course, for some people, having speeds up to 100 Mbps is not something that they would ever use. In fact, most people do not even come close to reaching those kinds of speeds. People who enjoy playing online games, streaming videos, and so on may be able to fully enjoy these blazing speeds.

Right now it is hard to think of what 400 Mbps would be like. However, at some point in the near future people may get a chance to experience that as well. Once again, this is going to be a service that is much-loved by online gamers.
