Internet speed boost for Dunstable, Houghton Regis and Leighton Buzzard
MP Andrew Selous welcomes the move
Virgin Media O2 has added thousands of homes in Dunstable, Leighton Buzzard and Houghton Regis to its gigabit network, offering broadband speeds 20 times faster than the local average.
As well as preparing homes for the technologies and applications of tomorrow, gigabit speeds enable consumers to do more online – from working, streaming, socialising and gaming – all at the same time on multiple devices under the same roof.
Lutz Schüler, Chief Executive Officer at Virgin Media O2, said: “Our continued investment means more than three-quarters of our network, including Dunstable, is now gigabit ready, offering millions of households across the country access to future-proof services and the fastest broadband available from any major provider.

Andrew Selous, MP for SW Bedfordshire, said: “All of us need really good internet speeds at home and at work and I’m delighted to see more of my constituents benefiting from them. I will continue to work to make sure all of my constituents can benefit from this improve connectivity.”
