British broadband provider Virgin Media has boosted the maximum downlink speeds offered over its infrastructure to 500Mbps, with the new top-tier rates available to both business users and those residential subscribers that sign up to a newly-launched bundle, ‘V.VIP’. The new plan is being offered to residential customers for GBP99 (USD128) per month for the first twelve months, with the price rising to GBP139 thereafter. It includes the new 500Mbps downlink connection, a fixed voice line with inclusive calls to UK landline and mobile numbers, a mobile SIM with unlimited data, calls minutes and SMS, and more than 300 pay-TV channels.

Meanwhile, for business users the telco’s new ‘VOOM 500’ plan offers is confirmed to offer an increased upload speed of 35Mbps in addition to the faster downlink rates, and costs GBP62 (excluding VAT) per month.
