Virgin Media investment connects 2,500 homes Calderdale village to ultrafast broadband
Virgin Media has connected 2,500 in Shelf to its ultrafast broadband network which will bring the UK’s fastest widely available speeds to the area.
As part of its ‘Project Lightning’ network expansion programme, Virgin Media is expanding its ultrafast broadband network across the UK, bringing average top speeds of more than 600Mbps to residents and small businesses.
Shelf is the latest area to benefit from Virgin Media’s investment and local residents are set to benefit from Gig1 broadband offering speeds of more than 1,000Mbps as the firm rolls out next-generation gigabit connections to its entire network of 15 million homes by the end of 2021.
Virgin Media has continued to expand its network and install new customers during the global COVID-19 pandemic to bring ultrafast connectivity to more homes and businesses across the UK when they need it most.
Hugh Woolford, Regional Director for Yorkshire and the East Midlands at Virgin Media, said: “Our ultrafast and reliable broadband service ensures that whatever you rely on connectivity for, whether it’s watching, streaming or Zoom calling, you’ll never miss a minute.
“Shelf residents can now experience this next generation connectivity for themselves, thanks to the latest stage of our network expansion programme which has unlocked speeds 15 times faster than local average to over 2,500 premises.”
