Virgin Media has launched a new broadband service offering a top speed of 152Mbps — over ten times faster than the UK’s average broadband speed of 14.7Mbps. The new 152Mb top speed means that customers can download an entire TV show in one minute, but the ultrafast service really comes into its own in satisfying the demand for bandwidth as people use multiple connected devices online at the same time, according to Virgin.
If, like Aaron Paul, you’ve got a Need for Speed, then Virgin Media’s latest news is probably up your alley. The company has announced that it’s pushing its top fiber broadband speed up from a 120Mbps all the way up to 152Mbps over the next 12 months. At the same time, Virgin has also announced that it’ll be reducing the amount of traffic management during peak times. That way, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of that supercharged connection, even when everyone else is on their PS4 or bingeing on Netflix.
