Earlier this year, Virgin Media pledged to rapidly expand its cable broadband across the UK. Dubbed "Project Lightning," its aim is to offer speedy 152Mbps internet to an extra 4 million homes over the next five years. The company kicked off the project in Manchester, and today it's announcing the next city on its hit list: Nottingham. Roughly £25 million of its promised £3 billion investment will go towards fitting out 50,000 homes and businesses in the area. Specifically, this is the NG postcode -- so Nottingham's city centre, suburbs and surrounding towns, including Mansfield and Newark-upon-Trent. If you're desperate to get hooked up, you can register your interest now at Virgin Media's "Cable My Street" site -- there's no guarantee, but it just might move your neighbourhood further up the list.
