LONDON -- Customers of Everything Everywhere and Three are set to benefit from super-fast access to mobile data on the move. Mobile Broadband Network Ltd (MBNL) is to be the first company to roll out Virgin Media Business’ seamless Sync-E solution. The deployment will enable MBNL to support the explosion in data traffic and lay the foundations for a transition towards 4G. Customers of Everything Everywhere and Three will benefit from an unrivalled mobile experience and reap the true potential of existing 3G services. MBNL Ltd has signed a £100 million plus, eight year contract with Virgin Media Business.

Virgin Media Business will build 14 regional aggregation networks across the UK to enhance MBNL’s bandwidth capacity. The high performance network will give consumers an even better mobile experience allowing them to push their 3G enabled functionalities from video calling through to mobile TV to the limits.

The ground breaking technology is set to be the UK’s only synchronous Ethernet mobile backhaul service. The first phase of deployment will see MBNL harness the power of the 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) Ethernet service, ensuring that mobile data users will have continuous access to the high bandwidth network. Everything Everywhere and Three will benefit from the increased capacity, enabling them to better transport the huge amounts of data that their combined 35.2 million customers consume when accessing social networking sites, mobile video, mobile music, the mobile internet and applications.
