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 TV packages and mobile phone deals available in whatever combination suits you.
Their standard bundles come in two basic tiers:
Both of the above can be supplemented with extra channel packages, including:
For customers who want it all, Virgin Media's Oomph bundles combine superfast broadband, Virgin TV packages, and mobile plans, all in a single tariff. They come in three sizes:

Virgin Media's fibre broadband services are currently available to 44% of UK homes, so there's a fair chance it will be available where you live. Use our postcode checker to find out if you can access their 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.
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 deals 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.
Line rental is included in all bundles as standard, priced at £19 per month.
You will likely have to pay an installation fee of £20. Check your chosen bundle as it may include free installation as an added extra.
