Virgin's ultrafast broadband is now available in New Milton and Highcliffe

Wednesday, May 30th 2018 by Oprah Flash

Virgin Media has revealed its ultrafast broadband network is now available to up to 2,400 properties in New Milton and Highcliffe, near Christchurch in Dorset.

With a local average of 23.5Mbps, Virgin Media’s top broadband package, VIVID 350, offers speeds averaging 362Mbps which is almost 15 times faster.

Virgin Media says its ultrafast broadband service will allow you to download a standard HD movie file (5GB) in just over two minutes, compared to around 30 minutes on the average local connection. For gaming fans of FIFA or Fortnite, if you decide to sign up to a VIVID 350 deal, Virgin Media says you’ll be able to download a 25GB console game in just over 10 minutes.

Cormac Connolly, regional director at Virgin Media, said: “We are delighted that local residents and businesses across New Milton and Highcliffe can now start to benefit from the boost our ultrafast broadband will give them.

Quicker and easier

“Giving them greater speeds will enable them to do the things they need to do and love doing more quickly and more easily.”

As well as improving connectiving for residents in New Milton and Christchurch, the provider recently announced its service is also available in the coastal towns of Margate and Ramsgate.

Things are looking good for Virgin Media at the moment. While other providers were hit by the ASA’s rulingto advertise average rather than ‘up to’ broadband speeds, Virgin Media came out smelling of roses, as its average speeds that 50% of customers receive at peak time turned out to be higher than previously advertised.

At the time of writing Virgin Media has a Flash Sale on its broadband and TV bundles. When you sign up for a Player, Mix, Full House or VIP bundle you’ll be eligible for up to 14 free bottles of wine or money off your bill.
