Virgin Media announces network expansion

DTG members Virgin Media have today announced their largest network expansion plans since the company's launch in 2007. This includes plans to extend the network to 100,000 homes in East London with work already underway in Bethnal Green, the Isle of Dogs and West Ham. Further cables will reach Stratford, Poplar and Stepney.

Virgin Media is available in around half of London's households and the company also runs the Wi-Fi on the London Underground—a service used by more than one million Londoners every day.

“Extending our network into East London means 100,000 more homes will benefit from the UK’s fastest most widely available broadband for the first time,” said Virgin Media chief executive Tom Mockridge. “This is a significant investment for Virgin Media and our largest, single network expansion project to date. We are very proud to be supercharging East London, helping thousands of people make the most of the UK’s exciting digital future.”
