BSG welcomes Virgin Media’s announcement of its new 50Mbps service, currently available to 5m homes on the Virgin network. This is the first major commercial rollout of next generation broadband, and represents a significant step in the development of the UK’s knowledge economy infrastructure.
Commenting, Antony Walker, CEO of the BSG said, “This is a very significant development in the context of next generation broadband deployment in the UK. Over the last two years the debate has moved on significantly, and this last year has seen intentions to deploy expressed by both Virgin Media and BT.
“With the launch of this service, Virgin have moved the debate on again. The impact this service has on the market will tell us a lot about how next generation broadband will develop in the UK.???
