Virgin Media expands broadband network in Newcastle

Tuesday 19 December 2017 | 14:45 CET | News
Virgin Media said it will bring 'ultrafast' broadband to homes and businesses in Newcastle. As part of its network expansion project, Virgin Media plans to extend its network for up to 12,000 properties in Benwell and Elswick by the end of 2019, bringing speeds of up to 300Mbps for residents and 350Mbps for small businesses. This will transform the quality of broadband in each area where the average download speed is just 20Mbps, the company said in a press release.
