Virgin Media logo

Virgin Media offers the UK's fastest, widely available broadband. With superfast speeds in excess of 350Mbps, it's ideal if you live in a busy family home. And it's great if you live in shared accommodation or play games online too.

What can I get from Virgin Media broadband?

Virgin Media's major selling point is that it's the UK's fastest widely available broadband, with a service that's five times faster than Sky and BT.

And it's one of the few broadband providers that lets you sign up for standalone broadband without having to pay for a landline too.

Virgin Media also offers TV, home phone and mobile phone services. So if you're looking to save money, you can take two or more of these services from Virgin Media and pay much less than you would were to sign up for the same services separately from different providers.

Virgin Media broadband packages and speeds

Virgin Media's broadband is available in a choice of speeds. Pick from these packages:

  • M50 - 54Mbps average speed
  • M100 -108Mbps average speed
  • M200 - 213Mbps average speed
  • M300 - 362Mbps average speed
  • M500 - 516Mbps average speed

With a speed of 108Mbps, the M100 service is more than fast enough for most busy households.

But even the M50 will handle the demands of multiple occupancy homes, where several people are streaming video or playing online games simultaneously.

All packages offer unlimited downloads too, so you needn’t worry about a usage cap cutting you off or the prospect of Virgin Media slowing your service during peak times.

All Virgin Media broadband packages are available on 12-month contracts, compared to the 18-month contract terms that are now standard for Sky broadband and 24-month contract term that applies when you sign up to BT broadband.

The catch is that Virgin Media broadband isn't available everywhere. Use our postcode checker to see if you can get it at your address.

In the event of a service failure, customers on Oomph packages get an unlimited 4G allowance on their SIM card until the fault is repaired.

And because you can use the SIM for tethering, you can share your 4G connection and use your 4G connection to get online on any internet-enabled devices, including laptops and tablets.

Customers on Virgin Media's top-of-the-range Oomph package are also guaranteed to be able to fix a next-day engineer appointment to resolve the problem.

Virgin Media student broadband and one-month contracts

As well as standard 12-month contracts, Virgin Media offers special student-friendly broadband contracts that run for a nine-month term. That means you don't have to pay for a service during the summer holidays.

And if you're between permanent addresses, it's also worth noting that Virgin Media is one of the few providers that offers broadband on a one-month contract too.
