Virgin bumps broadband up to 30Mbps
Virgin Media, who are keen to accuse everyone else of not delivering on superfast broadband packages, have announced a new 30Mbps service which replaces their existing supersize me package that currently charges along at 20Mbps.
As of today, customers who want this XL broadband will be able to get the faster service for less... provided of course, that they get themselves a Virgin Media landline as well.
If you're already a customers on XL at 20Mbps, you'll be able to upgrade for a one-off price of £30.You have to cough this up to get your hands on (and exchange for your old router) the new SuperHub3.
Jon James, Executive Director of Broadband at Virgin Media, says: “As consumers continually demand more and more from their broadband, the unique power of our next-generation network means that we’re able to turn up the dial to meet their needs.”
“With so many devices connecting to the internet at home these days, our new 30Mb service will give Virgin Media families that extra boost needed to make everything run smoothly, with speeds that don’t slow down depending on where you live.”
Just try and ignore all those people who moan and swear about Virgin broadband on various social networking sites.
