Three-quarters of Virgin Media's new broadband subscribers are connecting at speeds of 10Mb or quicker, it has been revealed.
The provider's latest financial report disclosed that about 75 per cent of its customers sign up for one of its high-speed packages, with more than a third of its total user base hooked up to a 10Mb service.
Among the group's offerings to the market is a 50Mb fibre optic service, which is presently the fastest connection available on the market.
Virgin Media's report read: "From May 2009, we plan to begin upgrading our 2.4 million existing 2Mb customers to our 10Mb service.
"We continue to roll out availability of our 50Mb service which we expect to be available to our entire broad-band capable network during the third quarter of 2009."
The company's quarterly results also disclosed that 47,300 households signed up to its broadband packages in the first three months of 2009.
