Virgin media may have made some customers in the UK nervous when it discontinued its 2mbps Internet service package. That discomfort was short lived though after Virgin announced that the customers were being upgraded to a new speed running at 10mbps for free.

Two even faster plans are being offered that allow web surfing at 20mbps and 50mbps respectively. The entry-level 10mbps plan costs only £14 per month. Those of us in America eye these plans with envy, we are stuck with plans here that typically only run 1mbps or even slower for about the same money.

Virgin says that the upgrade is the largest scale speed upgrade ever undertaken in the UK. Virgin says it was motivated to update the speed on its network because of high bandwidth devices like the BBC iPlayer.
