Virgin Media doubles broadband speed

Michael Phillips, product director at broadbandchoices.co.uk commented, “Virgin Media’s decision to boost broadband speeds for its customers is great news, made even sweeter by the fact it’s offering it at no increased cost.

“The way we use the internet has changed dramatically over the last few years and many families now access online content at the same time with Dad on the laptop, Mum on the computer and the kids on their iPhones or game console. Recent Ofcom stats revealed that the average broadband home consumes a whopping 17 GB of data every month, watching online TV, gaming and streaming music – all bandwidth hungry activities demanding the faster speeds that Virgin Media is promising to deliver.

“Whilst broadband speeds of 120Mb is an impressive feat, consumers should remember it is not all about speed and keep in mind their download limits.
Whilst all Virgin Media packages have unlimited data usage, not all superfast broadband deals have this perk, so remember to keep an eye on the volume of data being downloaded to avoid any unpleasant ‘excess usage’ fines in your monthly bill.”
