Virgin 100Mb broadband reaches 1 million homes

Virgin Media has passed the one million milestone as it rolls out its 100Mb broadband service across its cable network.

The 100Mb service is on sale nationwide with a complete roll-out on track for mid-2012.

Virgin Media now carries over half a terabit of data per second during busy periods and can provide 10Mb upload speeds enabling sharing of live high definition video.

Jon James, executive director of broadband at Virgin Media said: "Reaching the one million home milestone is a hugely important step in ensuring consumers are able to keep up with the latest developments in this digitally connected world. We had more then 10,000 registrations on the first day we unveiled 100Mb so there is real desire for better broadband and all the wonderful things you can do with a fast connection. When we finish the roll-out of 100Mb across our network, half the country will have access to ultrafast broadband. That'll be six years ahead of EU targets. "
