Virgin Broadband | Compare Virgin Media broadband deals and packages
Find out more about Virgin broadband – one of the UK's most popular providers – with our useful guide.
As recently as 2010, Virgin were the only provider of fibre-optic (high speed) broadband in the UK. With speeds of up to 300Mbps in some areas, it’s still one of the fastest around. That being said, other speedy fibre competitors have emerged onto the scene, with BT and Sky two notable providers that now offer super-fast fibre.
While Virgin do provide the fastest internet in the UK, but they have come unstuck in areas such as pricing, coverage, and customer service over the years.
Follow the rest of this guide to find out all you need to know about Virgin broadband, and whether they might be the right provider for you.
What broadband packages does Virgin offer?
Virgin offers four main broadband deals, but it’s definitely worth checking out their phone/TV bundles – as they can offer some serious value for money (we’ll get to them later). Here are the deals:
*Speeds vary depending on address (Remember, as with all broadband providers, you’ll need to check the availability in your area using your postcode).
What is 'line rental'?When shopping around for broadband deals, it’s easy to be drawn in by an eye-catching ‘£5.99 a month’ deal. What these deals nearly never include is something called “line rental”.
Broadband, for the most part, needs a phone line to connect to the internet. BT owns the country’s phone line network, and charges other providers to use the lines. They then pass the cost onto consumers in the form of “line rental”.
What comes included with Virgin broadband packages?
- Free router. All of Virgin’s broadband packages come with a Wi-Fi hub.
- High speed connection. Virgin’s packages are all faster than average UK providers. This is, however, still dependent on your local area.
- Unlimited usage. All of Virgin’s packages are unlimited.
