While he was sceptical about its usefulness, an expert said he was quickly wowed by leading broadband provider Virgin Media's superfast service.

Patrick Goss, editor of Techradar, reported that when he first received a 50Mbps line he was not sure why he would ever need a connection that was so far.

He said: "Even after just a few short months with a fast connection I felt compelled to disagree … it doesn't take a genius to come to the conclusion that superfast broadband is very much the future."

The editor subjected it to what he called 'the reality test' of day-to-day life, using it to surf the web, game, download and to help him change operating system, which convinced him of its usefulness.

Virgin Media's broadband allowed him to speed up the process of everything from gaming on the Xbox and PlayStation to checking emails on a phone.

Earlier this month, Virgin Media announced that it would be launching a 100Mbps connection, a service that will be 24 times faster than the average internet connection.
