Virgin Media Named Ireland’s Fastest Broadband Provider

Virgin Media has been named as the fastest broadband provider for the third year-in-a-row by an independent consumer-initiated testing platform. Ookla’s connection speed tests showed that Virgin Media is more than twice as fast as its nearest competitor for broadband and In-Home WiFi.

Comparing hundreds of thousands of tests carried out by consumers themselves, Ookla studied the 90th percentile speeds delivered by all the major internet service providers in Ireland during the award determination period (Q2-Q3 2017). Virgin Media provided the fastest average speeds delivering 90th percentile download speeds of 209.27 Mbps compared to eir (81.28 Mbps), Vodafone (66.99 Mbps) or Sky (62.74 Mbps).

Virgin Media’s In-Home WiFi also excelled, providing Virgin’s customers with 90th percentile download speeds of 176.15 Mbps, compared to eir (74.41 Mbps), Sky (58.89 Mbps) and Vodafone (58.84 Mbps).
