Virgin Media is about to test internet speed of 1.5Gb in partnership with four companies in London. This speed would be 240 times faster than the UK average.
Their plan is to provide a 1.5Gb download speed and 150Mb upload, using the same cable infrastructure they currently employ.
The trial is taking place between Virgin Media and four companies in the creative industries.
Jon James, executive director of broadband at Virgin Media, commented, “Our growing network provides a highly competitive alternative to the fastest fibre networks of the future ensuring Virgin Media business and residential customers continue to enjoy world-class broadband.”
