Virgin Media M600 broadband

Virgin Media Ultimate Oomph Bundle

One of the highlights of Ultimate Oomph bundle is M600 fibre broadband, the fastest residential broadband plan from Virgin Media.

M600 broadband which offers an average download speed of 630Mbps is exclusively available to Ultimate Oomph customers which means M600 does not come with other options such broadband & phone or broadband only. 

M600 plan also comes with faster upload speeds (41Mbps) when compared to M500 broadband (36Mbps). 

So, the lightning speeds of M600 in both directions (download and upload) just help you get the best experience when you stream ultra HD videos and play online games. With M600 ultrafast broadband, downloading large size files and connecting multiple devices is never a problem and does not slow down your speeds.

However, M500 broadband which is also available without TV, enjoys better availability, while M600 upgrade is expected to cover all Virgin Media cable areas by this year end.

Virgin Media Hub 3 and Hub 4

Virgin Media Hu 3 and Hub 4

Virgin Media Hub 3 is standard WiFi router for all packages, however, Ultimate Oomph bundle customers can opt for the new Hub 4 upgrade which will cost extra.

Virgin Hub 3 comes with in-built technology (Intelligent WiFi) to automatically fix WiFi issues and offer reliable speeds. As M600 broadband provides 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.
