Unlimited, superfast broadband
Fibre optic broadband from Virgin Media which can offer 4 times faster speeds than the regular ADSL broadband is a great way to get the best value for your money, especially when you need to share broadband with others or download & upload huge volumes of information online or when multiple devices are used to access the internet simultaneously.
Virgin offers average speed of 54Mb/213Mb/362Mb and you can bundle broadband with phone or TV or both TV & phone. You can also choose just broadband, without Virgin phone or TV.
54Mbps speeds will enable you to download a DVD movie (5GB) in less than 20 minutes and you will need just half of these minutes to download the same movie at 108Mbps speeds.
Next generation broadband from Virgin Media not only offers superfast speeds but also comes with unlimited usage.
What’s more, Virgin student packages are not subject to any fair usage limit means you can download unlimited amounts of data or music or movies without incurring any hidden charges.
However, your download speeds may be slowed down at peak times, when your downloads or uploads exceed the thresholds set by Virgin’s traffic management policy which applies to usage only during peak times.
To avoid being hit by peak time restrictions, Virgin advises that heavy downloaders use off-peak times for downloading large files or movies.
