Virgin Media Business is giving businesses across the UK and Ireland a boost of speeds up to 350Mbps as standard with the launch of Voom Fibre.
This speed boost puts Virgin Media Business broadband more than four times faster than the equivalent speeds offered by its rivals.
The new speed will be available for new and existing business customers from May 2nd, and customers will be able to choose a range of additional options to suit their needs, including increased upload speeds and support options.
With Voom Fibre, businesses can choose between three price plans and upload speeds – with a number of bolt-ons and discounts on additional services to help them tailor the product to their specific business needs. Prices start from £30 a month, with two additional options priced at £40 and £55 a month.
“We have, for many years now been the champions of small business, in particular entrepreneurs, through both our VOOM Competition platform and our Pioneers Community. With the launch of Voom Fibre we want to unleash every small business by providing the digital backbone they need for their business,” Virgin Media Business MD Peter Kelly said. “For UK small business to thrive in this evolving digital economy they should have the technical ability and capacity in place so they can focus on development and growth, we are removing a barrier and enabling them to fulfil their digital potential - offering them all the speed they need to achieve success.
“We are putting a huge challenge to the market to do better. Our standard speed is now more than four times faster than our competitors’ fastest broadband product and we encourage them to match us to enable and benefit small businesses and the UK economy.”
Virgin Media Business is also working to help small businesses connect with each other, through socialising and developing their community. The community will be a UK-wide network of seekers and providers of advice, where a geo-located platform will enable entrepreneurs to share, co-create and collaborate with other small business owners in their local area.
Peter Kelly added: “Entrepreneurship and endeavour requires more than a fast broadband connection. It requires ongoing support and a community of like-minded individuals to nurture and accelerate entrepreneurship into the future.
“We are passionate about seeing businesses grow and be the best they can be, so we’re creating a community made up of entrepreneurial dreamers through to established small business owners who will be able to connect with like-minded professionals.”
