Features

Gigabit broadband

One of the top features of Ultimate Volt bundle is Gig 1 fibre broadband, the fastest residential broadband plan from Virgin Media.

Gig1 fibre broadband offers an average download speed of 1,130Mbps (52Mbps average upload speed) which is suitable for connecting 20+ devices at the same time. The lightning speeds of Virgin Media Gig1 will offer the best experience when you stream ultra HD videos and play online games.

Gig1’s gigabit broadband speeds will just help you download large size files in seconds and minutes. 

Virgin Media Hub 3 and Hub 4

Virgin Media Hub

Virgin Media Hub 3 is standard WiFi router for all packages, however, Ultimate Volt bundle customers will get the new Hub 4 upgrade for no extra cost.

Virgin Hub 3 comes with in-built technology (Intelligent WiFi) to automatically fix WiFi issues and offer reliable speeds. As Gig1 broadband is the fastest plan, syncing Virgin Hub provides enough speeds to connect 10+ devices for bandwidth intensive activities like 4K streaming and online gaming.

While Virgin Hub 3 is capable of 500Mbps+ speeds, Virgin Media Hub 4 is designed for gigabit broadband connection (1Gbps) and for better WiFi as Hub 4 can link 32  bands while Hub 3 comes with lesser capacity (24 bands). So, Hub 4 is recommended to improve WiFi range and signal strength. In addition, Virgin Hub 4 is also future proof as it is compatible with the advanced DOCSIS3.1 network. 

Virgin Media offers two solutions to fix WiFi issues such as slow speeds and blackspots – Virgin Media Connect app and WiFi Extenders

Virgin Media Connect App helps you scan all the rooms in a house to monitor the speeds that you get from the router. Once you find the rooms where the speeds drop, you can fix the issue by moving the router to the right place. 

WiFi extenders which Virgin Media offers are useful to remove blackspots as they boost signal strength and speeds all around your home.

Virgin Media Ultimate Volt bundle includes Talk More Anytime calls which allows you to make anytime calls to UK landlines, 0845 and 0870 numbers and mobile numbers of any network.
