Virgin Media Trials Gigabit Fibre Broadband Tech in Rural Cambridgeshire

Virgin Media is bringing gigabit fibre to 100 homes in Cambridgeshire as part of a rural broadband trial.

The trial will see the village of Papworth Everard connected to FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) broadband providing download speeds of up to 1Gbps (1,000Mbps) – head and shoulders above the current UK average.

Virgin Media will be employing a new method called ‘narrow-trenching’ to connect homes. In a nutshell, this means Virgin Media can deploy fibre more quickly and at a reduced cost.
