If you choose to get your broadband with Virgin, you can choose speeds between 50Mbps and 300Mbps on a variety of different packages. That'll be changing soon, though, because the company is going to start advertising 350Mbps packages as early as this spring.
This information comes straight from Virgin Media's latest financial report, though ISPreview notes existing customers have had the option of upgrading their package to 350Mbps for a few months. Now, though,ow Virgin will be advertising the new speeds to brand new customers as well, which has the added bonus of offering a faster connection than BT, which started rolling out 330Mbps connections last month.
Virgin also has plans to expand its network to a further four million premises, which will increase its current 5,104,300-strong network by nearly 75 per cent. Only two million of the new premises will have a full Fibre-to-the-Premises connection, but it still means Virgin will be covered around 60 per cent of the UK. So if you can't get Virgin internet right now, and don't live somewhere that's either remote or poses a high investment risk, there's a good chance your options will change by the end of the decade.
