Virgin Media now claims 100Mbps speeds as standard

Virgin Media M_R_LOGO_RED_RGB_REGVirgin Media has revamped its internet bundles and now claims it is the first UK broadband provider to offer 100Mbps and above speeds “as standard”.

The Liberty Global-owned operator said that 100Mbps is now its entry level broadband speed, with its top speeds now standing at 300Mbps.

Virgin also said that it will offer its new Virgin TV V6 box as a standard with its ‘mix’, ‘fun’ and ‘full house’ bundles.

The V6 box launched at the end of last year and supports 4K Ultra-High Definition, can record six shows while a viewer watches a seventh, and comes with 1TB of storage.

“Eye-watering speeds, a better box and top-notch TV is a winning combination,” said Virgin Media CEO, Tom Mockridge.

“More and more switchers tell us they are joining Virgin Media for our faster speeds and we understand why – whether it’s 4K Netflix, box sets in multiple rooms or online gaming, the best entertainment requires the best broadband and we’re making sure our customers are covered with these bundles at incredible value.”
