The Prime Minister has given a warm reception to the official launch of Virgin Media's 100Mb fibre broadband services.
Set to commence in December 2010, the service will reportedly provide access to broadband speeds more than 20 times the current UK average.
Commenting on the news, David Cameron said the coalition government wanted to see high-speed broadband being delivered to homes and businesses across the UK.
"This exciting news takes us a step closer towards reaching that goal," he stated.
Back on Monday, the Prime Minister hinted at an imminent launch for Virgin Media's widely-awaited 100Mb broadband network, in a speech delivered at the Confederation of British Industry conference.
And Neil Berkett, Chief Executive of the broadband provider, confirmed on Wednesday (October 27th) that services are indeed ready to commence in the UK, meaning customers living in Virgin Media-connected streets will soon be able to reap the benefits of 100Mb downloads.
