Thanks to an upgrade of the internet service provider's (ISP's) super-fast fibre optic network, people in around 30,000 homes will be able to access broadband with speeds of up to 100Mb, as well as Virgin Media TV powered by TiVo.

Peter Taddeo, Virgin Media's Executive Director of Sales, said: "We’re really excited to bring our latest digital services to Derry. Now families and professionals have a choice of the UK’s leading digital entertainment services with the best in TV and ultrafast broadband all supplied by our unique fibre optic network."

Derry residents will be able to choose from broadband packages offering speeds of between 10Mb and 100Mb, while TV fans will benefit from Virgin Media's catchup services, the ability to record up to 500 hours of TV and over 4,600 hours of TV on demand.

Virgin Media is also taking its cable offerings to Ashford, Staines and Southampton in the future.
