Scarily fast broadband which lets users download an entire TV show in under a minute has arrived in Sheffield.
Virgin Media’s fibreoptic service can now hit 152Mb, which is 11 times faster than the UK’s average speed.
The speedy connection is the fastest in the UK and an increase from the previous 120Mb maximum.
Tom Mockridge, Virgin Media’s chief executive officer, said: “From daily life to the bigger aspects of society, culture and economic growth, digital is making a significant, positive difference to people’s lives. When it comes to making the most of our increasingly connected lives, speed matters and that is why we are supercharging our incredible network to ensure that Virgin Media customers in Sheffield can make the most of the online world.”
