HOMES in Bromsgrove are set to get their broadband eight times faster than the national average speed, after receiving a boost from Virgin Media.

The company has upped its top speed to 152Mb free of charge, meaning that entire families can use the internet at the same time, or users can download television programmes in one minute.

Tom Mockridge, Virgin Media’s chief executive officer, said: “Overwhelmingly people tell us the internet is a force for good. From daily life to the bigger aspects of society, culture and economic growth, digital is making a significant, positive difference to people’s lives. We’re supercharging our incredible network to ensure that Virgin Media customers in Bromsgrove can make the most of the online world.”
