Virgin Media key features

  • Offers the most widely available ultrafast broadband network in the UK, with speeds of over 500 Mbps available.
  • Packages are available without a landline, should calls not interest you.
  • Among the best TV selections of any broadband provider - on a par with Sky and BT.
  • One of the few providers that offers quadruple play packages, that include broadband, TV, mobile, and line rental.

What services does Virgin Media offer?

Virgin Media provides some of the fastest widely available broadband services in the country.

They manage the second largest broadband network in the UK, after Openreach, providing a viable alternative to most other ISPs who usually offer the same speeds/services as each other.

Virgin Media offers quite a range of different products, including:

  • Broadband
  • TV
  • Mobile

They are one of the few providers that offers quadruple play, which means you can bundle in broadband with Virgin TV , a Virgin mobile contract, and line rental.

Read on to find out a bit more about what the different services and bundles available from Virgin. For more of an in-depth analysis of the service they provide, check out our Virgin Media broadband review.

What speeds does Virgin Media Broadband offer?

Virgin regularly top the charts in terms of widely available download speeds. Using bespoke DOCSIS® 3 technology, their cables can connect you to the things you love at speeds of up to 500Mpbs+; faster than either BT or Sky in almost every region of the UK.

Virgin offers five levels of broadband speed to its customers. These are:

Deal Download Speed Upload Speed
M50 54Mbps 5Mbps
M100 108Mbps 20Mbps
M200 213Mbps 20Mbps
M350 362Mbps 36Mbps
M500 516Mbps 36Mbps

Most places that can receive Virgin Media will be able to sign up for at least their M50, M100, and M200 speeds.

Their M350 and M500 packages are not available everywhere yet but are being rolled out to more households every month.

Each of these internet packages is available with or without a phoneline, and comes with unlimited downloads as standard.

If you are looking for more than just broadband only or broadband and phone, Virgin have you covered; they also offer some of the best bundles on the market.

Virgin Media Contract lengths

To get the best deals from Virgin, you'll need to take out an 18-month contract. But if you need something less committal, and are willing to spend a little more each month, you can get most of Virgin's broadband packages on 30-day rolling contracts.

Rolling contracts are a great idea if you're coming to the end of a tenancy, or if you're a student who won't necessarily be in the same house for the full 18 months.

Bear in mind that an £80 upfront fee applies as standard for Virgin Media's rolling contracts, and you'll be paying around 40% more each month than you would on an 18-month plan.

Which Virgin Media bundle is best for me?

Virgin Media's fibre broadband is attractive enough by itself - it's hard to beat in terms of price and speed. However where Virgin really comes into its own is with its range of bundle deals, with a range of broadband and TV packages and mobile phone deals available in whatever combination suits you.

When will my area get Virgin Media services?

Virgin are constantly expanding their coverage area, and so it's worth checking every now and then to see if they've reached where you live. You can sign up for email updates on the Virgin Media website and you'll be notified when they become available in your local area.

How do Virgin compare to other providers?

As they use their own proprietary network that is separate to that of Openreach (the network that most other ISPs in the UK make use of), they are compared with other providers quite a bit as their internet connection offering is fundamentally quite different to that of other providers (whereas, most other provider's deals will be very similar from a speed point of view).

To settle things, we have carried out a couple of comparisons between Virgin Media and two of its main competitors, Sky and BT:

Frequently asked questions about Virgin Media

What if I'm unhappy with Virgin Media?

If you're currently a Virgin Media customer but you're unhappy with your broadband service, you should consider switching providers. Unfortunately, unless Virgin Media has raised its prices mid-contract, or you're getting significantly lower speeds than were advertised to you, you'll likely have to pay an early termination fee, depending on how far you are into your contract. For more information, read our guide on how to cancel Virgin Media.

How long does it take to set up Virgin Media broadband?

It could take as little as 4 days for you to get set up with Virgin Media Broadband, provided you're eligible for their QuickStart scheme (available to all Virgin Media-ready households). If an engineer is required to install lines to your property, however, the process could potentially take longer than 14 days, although Virgin Media will schedule in the appointment at the earliest possible opportunity.
