Virgin Media Business has successfully trialled small cell-based mobile broadband technology in the UK, it has been claimed.

The firm says it achieved download speeds "three times faster than current 3G networks" during the trial, which took place in Newcastle and Bristol.

According to Virgin Media Business, small cells deliver “faster and more robust internet connections” than existing 3G or Wi-Fi technology.

Kevin Baughan, Director of Wireless at Virgin Media Business, said the infrastructure provider is "incredibly excited" to be at the very forefront of small cell radio access network trials.

"In the future, cities will demand even faster connectivity and with mobile broadband set for explosive growth, small cells are offering a way forward that will rise to the challenge of superfast connectivity on the move," he stated.

Mr Baughan said the firm has moved a step closer towards the future, where ubiquitous high-speed connectivity will be the norm.
