Virgin Media has launched a new broadband package in the UK offering speeds of up to 350Mbps for small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs).

The Liberty Global-owned broadband provider claims the service is four times faster than anything currently on offer from rivals such as BT and Sky.

The company recently upped its standard fibre package to speeds of up to 100Mbps, and also launched a package aimed specifically at gamers.
