Virgin Media Business customers to get 350Mbps broadband as standard
Virgin Media is to start giving its business customers 350Mbps broadband as standard, the company has announced today.
From Tuesday 2 May, new and existing customers will get download speeds of up to 350Mbps and be able to choose from a range of additional options.
Voom Fibre, a new service for small and medium-sized enterprise (SMEs), will come with a choice of three price plans and upload speeds.
Peter Kelly, managing director of Virgin Media Business, said: “We have for many years now been the champions of small business, in particular entrepreneurs, through both our VOOM Competition platform and our Pioneers Community.
“With the launch of Voom Fibre we want to unleash every small business by providing the digital backbone they need for their business.”
Mr Kelly (pictured) said Virgin is removing a barrier to small businesses and enabling them to fulfil their digital potential by “offering them all the speed they need to achieve success”.
“Today we are putting a huge challenge to the market to do better.
“Our standard speed is now more than four times faster than our competitors’ fastest broadband product and we encourage them to match us to enable and benefit small businesses and the UK economy.”
Virgin is also looking to develop a community through which small businesses can offer each other support and mentoring.
It said the community will be a UK-wide network that will let entrepreneurs “share, co-create and collaborate” with other small business owners in their local area.
“Entrepreneurship and endeavour requires more than a fast broadband connection,” said Mr Kelly.
“It requires on-going support and a community of like-minded individuals to nurture and accelerate entrepreneurship into the future.
“We are passionate about seeing businesses grow and be the best they can be, so we’re creating a community made up of entrepreneurial dreamers through to established small business owners who will be able to connect with like-minded professionals.”
