Virgin Media will bring 300Mbps to SMBs in 30 more villages as part of its rural network expansion plans

Virgin Media has listed the next 30 rural communities to be covered by its £3 billion Project Lightning network expansion, bringing 300Mbps broadband to small businesses located outside major towns and cities.

The majority of premises passed in the expansion will be in major towns and cities also served by BT Openreach, but the imitative lets residents and businesses vote to be connected by Virgin Media.

Voting was suspended in April when ten communities were announced before resuming.

Project Lightning will see Virgin Media s footprint increase from 12.9 million premises to 17 million by the end of 2019, with 500,000 homes and businesses added this year alone.

A full list of the villages being added can be seen below.
