Virgin Media knows that faster is always better when it comes to the Internet, and they certainly aren’t horsing around by bumping the current 20Mbps top speed by another 50% – which means 30Mbps is the norm now (on paper, of course). To replace the existing 20Mbps, a new service known as XL is in place from today onwards. The additional speed will require you to fork out a one time fee of £30 that involves activation, and a new router which states the obvious – known as the Virgin Media Super Hub. Of course, 30Mbps will happen only if your area supports it, and if you’re a Virgin subscriber, you ought to be able to get within a 10% advertised range of the speed that you’ve just purchased.
