What is cable broadband?

Cable broadband is a type of connection exclusively available from Virgin Media in around 60% of UK homes.

The cable network was originally built to deliver television services, but has since been developed to support broadband and telephone calls as well.

Virgin Media’s cable network uses hybrid fibre connections to reach customers, which are made of a combination of fibre cables and coaxial copper cables.

Cable broadband offers maximum speeds of 300Mbps. Compare that to the maximum speed of Fibre to the Cabinet broadband at just 76Mbps.
