Features

Virgin Media is the first operator in the UK to offer starter level packages with 100Mbps speeds as standard. While BT and other ISPs offer maximum speed of 76Mbps, Virgin Media cable broadband offers top speeds of up to 300Mbps to home users.

Due to this advantage, the provider has become the first choice for anyone who is looking out for ultra-fast broadband for internet access needs. To support this, ISP has topped several independent and Ofcom speed surveys and customer satisfaction ratings since its nation-wide fibre upgrade in 2012.

The company offers tailor-made packages to families, individuals and students. Customers can choose from a range of standalone broadband deals or add home phone and digital TV or even mobile SIM based on their needs.

The new Virgin Media Big Bundles is the best way to get superfast, fibre optic broadband, calls and digital TV for your home on a single deal, helping you save more than £175 as these packages have discounts for the first 12 months and  optional, free self installation with new subscriptions. You can also bundle mobile SIM for the cheapest price of just £5 extra a month.

Virgin Media broadband speeds

Virgin Media’s entry level  broadband and phone package – VIVID 100 and Player triple-play bundle offer up to 100Mbps speeds which is nearly three times faster than UK average (36.2Mbps in November 2016) fixed broadband speeds measured by Ofcom speed survey.

So, even the basic and cheapest packages from Virgin Media ensure that you get better user experience when you make downloads or stream or watch videos and TV online.

Yet, faster speeds (up to 200Mbps and up to 300Mbps) that Virgin Media offers with top-end packages are ideal for watching high definition (HD) videos online, playing the latest games and for families with multiple users who access internet simultaneously.

You can download a DVD movie in less than 3 minutes using (up to) 200Mbps connection.

Virgin Media Broadband, phone and TV service

Virgin Media offers broadband and TV using its own cable network which has spread over 60% of the UK. The 100% fibre optic wiring has enabled the ISP to offer not only the fastest residential speeds in the UK but also speeds which are close to advertised speeds.

Broadband customers also get the latest SuperHub wireless router which is capable of faster and most secured connectivity & sharing at their homes.

The TV service from Virgin Media includes various TV packs which have TiVo box as standard. V HD box is also available so you can watch TV content in high-definition and extra channels (more than 230) can be added to your bundle by upgrading your package.

The top end packages now include the latest 1TB Virgin TV V6 box so you can watch live TV as well as record  500 hours of TV content from 6 channels.

You can add Virgin Phone to your bundles so you can get free weekend calls to UK landlines. Options to save your line rental or add anytime calls or mobile calls or international calls are also available.

Virgin Media stand-alone broadband

This option enables customers who live in Virgin’s cable network areas to get its fast broadband without phone line and line rental & calls cost. Cable wiring will be just installed up to home means there is no need to install or change landline to access the new service.

You can enjoy speeds from 100Mbps to 300Mbps, depending on your chosen package, though installation fee applies to all Virgin Media stand-alone packages.

Virgin Media Student broadband

For university students who need broadband only during term-time, Virgin Media offers 9 months contracts on a range of packages including stand-alone, broadband & phone or broadband & TV deals.Read our Virgin Media student broadband packages to find out more about the latest offers.
