Virgin Media has recently launched its gigabit network bringing average speeds of 1,130Mbps to thousands of homes in Doncaster.
The company confirms that the service, which is up to 28 times faster than the regional average, is now available to residents of New Rossington, Conisbrough, Edlington and Armthorpe. This allows users to send and receive large files, download TV shows, films and computer games in seconds instead of hours.
Lutz Schüler, Chief Executive Officer at Virgin Media O2, said: “Our continued investment means more than three-quarters of our network, including Doncaster, is now gigabit ready, offering millions of households across the country access to future-proof services and the fastest broadband available from any major provider.
“We’re continuing with our mission to upgrade the UK and connect our entire network to gigabit speeds by the end of the year – a pace unrivalled by any other provider.”
Councillor Jane Nightingale, Cabinet Member for Corporate Resources at Doncaster Council, said: “This is very welcome news for the borough both in terms of its immense social and economic impact.
"The high-speed connectivity will bring multiple benefits for our local businesses and communities including boosting business productivity and innovation alongside supporting flexible working.
“We will see further positive impacts through greater social inclusion, health and wellbeing, home learning and digital entertainment experiences.”
