Virgin Media eyes BT with £3bn fibre broadband investment- The Inquirer: "The investment, dubbed 'Project Lightning', will also increase the network's reach from 13 million to 17 million homes and businesses by 2020 as the firm looks to boost its current five million customer base.
Virgin Media also claims that it can offer broadband speeds of 152Mbps, at least double the fastest speeds available from rivals BT, TalkTalk and Sky.
Tom Mockridge, Virgin Media CEO, said: "Millions of homes and businesses will soon be able to benefit for the first time from broadband speeds at least twice as fast as those available from the other major providers.
"Consumers and business owners who want to make the switch to better broadband speeds now have an alternative: you can call on Virgin Media to 'Cable My Street'."
However, the 'Cable My Street' initiative could mean that rural areas suffering from slow broadband speeds could continue to suffer."
