Virgin Media are to be offering fibre broadband speeds of up to 150Mb before BT complete their own fibre optic network
Virgin Media are set to offer fibre broadband speeds of up to 150Mb before BT completes it's own fibre optic cable network that will offer speeds of 40Mb.
With Virgin Media broadband currently being in the driving set when it comes to fibre broadband (also known as cable broadband) they are likely to make the most of their current position as much as they can while they are able to offer a service that currently other providers are not able to.
Neil Berkett, the Chief Executive of Virgin Media told the BBC that Virgin's fibre broadband can support speeds up to 200Mb with FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet) but that they are unable to see being able to get returns on offering 100Mb to 150Mb broadband speeds at the present time.
