UK cable operator Virgin Media will complete an upgrade to its network this month that will see network capacity tripled and broadband speeds of up to 50Mbps become available. To mark the occasion, the operator has announced a new pricing structure for the service.
From September 1, Virgin Media will reduce the monthly cost of its 50Mbps service for new and existing customers to Â£28 (32.60) when taken with a phone line, or Â£38 if taken on its own.
The operator also announced it will trial a range of upload speeds of up to 10Mb. As well as trialing the technical capabilities of the DOCSIS 3.0 network, Virgin Media said the pilot will explore the demand for higher upstream speeds for Âbandwidth hungry familiesÂ, on services such as video conferencing, multiplayer gaming and home working.
