Virgin Media has today launched their new 152Mb broadband service in the UK, allowing users to access speeds that they won’t be able to get with any other widespread provider in the UK, and download entire TV shows in a matter of minutes.
Tom Mockridge, Virgin Media’s chief executive officer, said in the companies’ press release: “Overwhelmingly people tell us the internet is a force for good. From daily life to the bigger aspects of society, culture and economic growth, digital is making a significant, positive difference to people’s lives. We’re supercharging our incredible network to ensure that Virgin Media customers can make the most of the online world.”
The service launches alongside Virgin Media’s new whole-home control technology, allowing parents to restrict access to website which are age-inappropriate for free.
Culture Secretary Maria Miller MP also said in the press release: “Faster, safer home internet from Virgin Media is great news for families across the UK. Families are now downloading films, streaming music and playing games through phones, laptops, tablets and consoles. Higher speeds will enable the whole family to use the internet at the same time.”
The new package will join Virgin Media’s other packages, and will be available to existing customers over the next twelve months, allowing customers to boost their package to the new speed, 30Mbps broadband will get up to 50Mbps, those on 60Mbps will get 100Mbps, and those who have 120Mbps will get 152Mbps.
