In order to boost their network capacity, BSkyB has today announced a new agreement with Virgin Media Business costing £49 million, and will allow Sky to boost around a third of Sky’s nationwide broadband network.

The contract will last for five years and will see the core of Sky’s network boosted by the end of 2013, resulting in superfast and delivering speeds of up to 10GBps, using Virgin Media Business’ High Capacity Services product.

The director of Sky Network Services at BSkyB said the following about the contract:

“As we see traffic on our network grow significantly year-on-year, this agreement provides us with the capacity we need to keep innovating for customers and as such are committed to maintaining our high-capacity network.”

So you should start seeing faster broadband speeds if you subscribe with Sky by the end of the year.
