Virgin Media brings next-generation broadband boost to Reading.
10:29 23 December 2019
Virgin Media’s recent investment is bringing next-generation broadband boost to hundreds of thousands of homes in and around Reading. Those that are set to benefit include homes in Caversham, Calcot, Tilehurst, Earley and Woodley as well as surrounding villages, including Twyford, Pangbourne, Shinfield and Theale.
The move is part of Virgin Media’s commitment to bringing gigabit speeds to 15million homes by the end of 2021. The service is future-proof and is strong and fast enough for future applications, including 8K streaming, virtual reality telepresence and cloud gaming.
Jeff Dodds, Chief Operating Officer at Virgin Media, said: "This is a next-generation broadband boost for the residents of Reading."
"These hyperfast speeds are 25 times faster than Reading’s average broadband connection, meaning that households can do everything they want to do online, at the same time, without delay and are well set for whatever comes next."
"This is just one of many investments we’re making in Reading – with our brand-new state-of-the-art office set to open next month. We’re committed to making the UK faster and will continue to roll out next-generation Gig1 broadband across our entire network over the next 24 months - a speed and scale unmatched by anyone else."
