Virgin Media Fibre Expansion Will Serve 100,000 London Homes

By Gerald Lynch on at

Virgin Media is getting ready to bring its fibre optic broadband to 100,000 additional London homes, announcing the largest expansion of its network since it launched back in 2007.

It's the East End that's the focus, which should stop Phil Mitchell losing his rag. Residents and businesses in Bethnal Green, Isle of Dogs, Newham and West Ham will be the first to benefit, with homes in Stratford, Poplar, Stepney, Bow and East Ham following afterwards. Virgin Media lists its service's speed at 152Mb -- double the BT fibre optic average. [Virgin Media]
