Virgin Media is to offer unlimited broadband service to its business clients following complaints about slow and disrupted Internet speeds.
The broadband service provider has decided to offer its 1,500 business and enterprise customers an unlimited broadband service package following a survey of IT professionals in the country, tech news site Computer Weekly reports.
“In 2010 telecom providers shouldn’t be acting as gatekeepers to what British businesses need in order to innovate and grow – bandwidth. We can take advantage of the capacity of vast under-utilised asset on our national fibre optic network,” said managing director of Virgin Media Business, Mark Heraghty.
The company will offer this special service under the banner name ‘the Big Red Internet’ without any extra charges.
The plan will offer 100MB per second to small corporate clients, whereas big firms will receive 1GB per second speed.
Virgin Media has planned this service after it conducted a survey with industry professionals, who blamed slow and restricted broadband speed for damaging their end results.
