Virgin Media, the UK’s ultrafast internet provider, announced Sunday that Manchester is the first city to benefit from “Project Lightning”, unveiled earlier this year.
This major expansion of ultrafast connectivity to 4 million premises over the next five years is stated to be the single largest investment in the UK’s broadband digital infrastructure for more than a decade.
To mark the launch of its ultrafast broadband network expansion, Virgin Media is celebrating with a world-first ‘High Speed Selfie’ photo booth experience in Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester.
The two-day public experience gives visitors the opportunity to be photographed in the face of g-force speeds.
Former Girls Aloud member Sarah Harding trialled the results in a London studio last week. As Virgin Media continues its rollout in towns and cities across the UK, the ‘High Speed Selfie’ will be there to mark the occasion.
An extra 150,000 Manchester premises benefit from ultrafast broadband for the first time as Virgin Media expands its network based on demand from consumers and communities which register their interest at virginmedia.com/cablemystreet.
