It was confirmed yesterday that 200 customers in a town called Warrington in Cheshire have been invited to demo 50MB broadband for 2 months at no extra cost. Customers who agree to the offer by the 18th November will receive a new modem. In exchange for the upgraded speeds, they will have to fill in a few questionaires.
Warrington was chosen because “a high proportion of Virgin Media customers in Warrington are already using higher speed packages”.
The firm has upgraded it’s network to support DOCSIS3 standards.
The company will release their new package, the “XXL” package, mid next year.
