Virgin Media has announced plans to bring faster broadband to an additional 360,000 homes and businesses across Scotland by the end of 2019. The expansion is part of the cable operator's 'Project Lightning' to add 4 million sites to its network by 2019, under a GBP 3 billion investment. The roll-out has already started in Scotland, with more than a third of the targeted premises to be connected by the end of 2017.
