50,000 more premises in Nottingham area to get ultrafast from Virgin Media

We highlighted how Nottingham North was the fastest constituency in August and if the roll-out of Project Lightning to some 50,000 premises in Nottingham area delivers we are likely to see Nottingham continue to lead at the top of the table for a long time.

Virgin Media has announced that as part of its demand led roll-out of its ultrafast cable broadband service that Nottinghm, Grantham, Mansfield and Newark-upon-Trent are all set to be the next new areas to get improved access to 152 Mbps broadband (rising to 300 Mbps later in 2015/2016).

"The early interest from homeowners, businesses and Nottingham City Council has been instrumental in Virgin Media being able to fast track our network expansion plans in the area. You can now help us to get ultrafast internet access to your home or business premise by registering today at"

Tom Mockridge, Virgin Media Chief Executive Officer

Nottingham already has extensive cable coverage with Nottingham East at 91.9%, Nottingham North 90.3% and Nottingham South 91.2%, it is Grantham (35.7%), Mansfield (77%) and Newark-upon-Trent (48%) that will stand to benefit the most from the roll-out.
