Virgin Media O2 are giving millions of their UK customers a free broadband speed upgrade

Virgin Media O2 have confirmed that they will be giving both new and existing customers free upgrades to their broadband packages if they are using heir M100 or M200 speed tiers, offering users a 20+% increase in download speed. 

For users of Virgin Media's M100 service, which currently offers advertised uploads/download speeds of 108Mbps and 10 Mbps, Virgin Media O2 will be upgrading them to their new M125 performance tier. This Tier will offer users upgraded upload speeds of 132 Mbps and advertised upload speeds of 20 Mbps. That's a 2x increase in upload speeds! 

Virgin Media's M200 service will be upgraded to M250, increasing the packages listed download speeds from 213 Mbps to 264 Mbps and increase upload speeds from 20 Mbps to 25 Mbps. This gives Virgin Media customers more value out of their broadband packages. 

To access these new speeds, Virgin Media users simply need to reboot their broadband hub. Simply switch your hub off and on again to benefit from increased broadband speeds. 

Jeff Dodds, the Chief Operating Officer of Virgin Media O2, had the following to say about their upgraded broadband packages.

      Virgin Media O2 set out with a clear aim to upgrade the UK, and giving millions of our customers enhanced value through our latest broadband speed boost is another step towards this.

As reliance on connectivity continues to grow – and at a time when value matters more than ever – we’re proud to be giving our customers even more, on us.

Virgin Media O2 has also confirmed that they will be upgrading the upload speeds of their small business users on their VROOM 600, 800, and 1Gig packages in early 2023. Let's hope that similar changes are also planned for their consumer users.
