In the UK, Virgin Media has launched its new 50 Megabits per second (Mbps) domestic broadband service.

In doing so it will be the first UK ISP to roll out a next generation broadband service that runs far faster than most others available to UK web users. The new 50 Mbps service will cost ?51 a month, although this is reduced to ?35 if users also take a Virgin Phone line for an additional ?11 a month.

The details of the service were released during a news conference on Monday. Trials of the high-speed service were carried out in Kent during 2008.

The service will be rolled out country-wide over the next six months.
