Super-fast 200Mbps broadband to be available in few years

Internet service provider Virgin Media has said that its subscribers would have access to speeds of up to 200 Mbps in a few years time.

Virgin Media demonstrated its super-fast 185Mbps broadband service at the Ideal Home Show in London. The Ideal Home Show 2010, which is taking place at London's Earl's Court, will last until April 5th.

However, Virgin Media added that it would not roll out its 200Mbps broadband service commercially for at least coming two years.

Asam Ahmad, head of media relations at the company, confirmed that its super-fast broadband service was unlikely to be available to consumers in the recent future.

Company’s super-fast broadband service has already been under trial at some area of the country including Kent and Ashford.

Last month, Virgin Media had announced that it would offer its subscribers with 100Mbps broadband service by the end of current year.
