Virgin Media plans to create a nationwide Wi-Fi network for customers by opening up its network of Superhubs, reports Broadband TV News. The 'Virgin Media WiFi' service would use 20 Mbps of excess broadband within the Superhub that is not part of a customer's package. Trials are underway, with Virgin indicating in a mailing to customers that the service would launch in 2016. It is similar to services run by parent Liberty Global in other markets.
