Epsom has become the first town in Surrey to be linked up to Virgin Media's 100Mb super-fast broadband network, it has been reported.

The Epsom Guardian reported that the town - famous for hosting The Derby horse race - has become the latest addition to the internet service provider's growing fibre network.

Broadband deals offering up to 100Mb downloads will go on sale to local households and businesses this week, the news provider reported.

Jon James, Executive Director of Broadband at Virgin Media said residents in Epsom "will be blown away by what 100Mb can deliver".

He claimed that fibre broadband has the potential to have "a very real impact" on day-to-day life on the edge of the Downs.

"The launch of the service in Epsom is a significant milestone in the UK's broadband evolution and a vivid illustration of the power of our next-generation network," Mr James stated.

Virgin Media launched its 100Mb fibre broadband network in December 2010, initially offering super-fast broadband in Farnborough, Barry, Corby and Heckmondwike.
