It is also raising the ceiling on the highest speed package it currently offers — pushing 100Mbps subscribers on to a package with a theoretical maximum of 120Mbps. Rival broadband provider BT's current top speed broadband offering is 100Mbps.

The upgrades will also mean Virgin Media customers on the 10Mbps package will see their headline broadband download speed double to 20Mbps; customers on the 20Mbps and 30Mbps packages will get a speed hike to 60Mbps; while customers on 50Mbps will get lifted on to the 100Mbps service.
