Virgin Media has unveiled its 50Mbps broadband service at a press briefing this morning. It will be the fastest domestic connection available to UK web surfers. The XXL service will be priced at £52 per month with upload speeds capped to 1.75Mbit, increasing to 2.5Mbit in 2009. According to a report in the FT, Virgin Media CEO Neil Berkett was quoted as saying "It will be premium-priced," at an investors conference in New York last week. "I see no reason to go in cheap" he added. Link to the VM website Not worth it in my opinion, if it was a free upgrade then yes who would say no? There going to traffic shape it anyway starting early next year and the thing I think needs upgrading is the upload speed, that will help out massively when hosting live games. 50mbit down, 1.75mbit up is not exactly a good ratio... still better than 768kbps but not a massive improvement. Will anyone be upgrading?
