Earlier today Virgin Media announced that starting from next month there will be doubling the speed of most of the customers download and upstream.

Does everyone get their speed doubled?
All existing customers will get a broadband boost, and in most cases you’ll get double your current speed. 20Mb customers are getting their speeds tripled, while 100Mb are getting an increase to 120Mb – the fastest broadband widely available in the UK.
How are my speeds changing?
This table shows you what speed you’ll be getting. If you’re not sure which package you’re on, check your bill or log into My Virgin Media.
New speed after your speed boost
|Broadband Size : S (up to 2Mb)||Up to 5Mb|
|Broadband Size : M (up to 10Mb)||Up to 20Mb|
|Broadband Size : L (up to 10Mb)||Up to 20Mb|
|Broadband Size : XL (up to 20Mb or 30Mb)||Up to 60Mb|

Note: Upstream speeds and traffic management fair usage amounts will be increased in proportion to the increase in downstream speed.”
