How to compare and buy Virgin Media broadband
How do I compare different packages?
Comparing Virgin Media broadband offers is easy with our comparison tool
If you’re looking for the best Virgin Media broadband deals, then look no further. Our comparison table shows you the best deals available in your area and lets you list them according to your preferences. When you’ve made your decision and are ready to jump to the provider’s page, just click the blue ‘See Deal’ button and you’ll be whisked straight to that deal. Simple.
Make sure the deal is available in your area
Virgin Media offers a number of different broadband packages, but that isn’t much use to you if they aren’t available in your area. If you are unsure as to whether you can receive Virgin’s products in your area, just put your postcode into the broadband checker and that will limit your results to those that are available in your area.
Check the detail
Make sure you know what you’re getting
Before you make your decision it’s always wise to check the detail of the offer you are considering. Virgin Media’s broadband packages can include a number of different elements, and it’s best to know what you’re letting yourself in for before you sign on the dotted line. Make sure you read the fine print on the contract and the terms and conditions of the deal you’re after.
Why choose Virgin Media broadband?
Virgin Media’s fibre optic broadband is fast
So much of our entertainment and communication uses an internet connection these days. We want our information now, on multiple devices wirelessly connected to the internet, and for that we need broadband. Virgin Media offers three speeds of fibre broadband, up to 50Mbps, up to 100Mbps and up to 152Mbps – the fastest speed widely available in the UK – so you should be able to find the speed you need.
Virgin Media is the only provider to offer a fibre broadband-only deal
If you’re not too fussed about TV, and having a landline feels a bit redundant now that you’ve got a load of free minutes on your mobile, then a Virgin Media broadband-only connection could be exactly what you need. Virgin offers all three of its fibre speeds as individual purchases, saving you the expense of line rental, and it is still the only UK fibre optic provider that offers this service.
Virgin Media’s bundles offer all your communication needs from one company
If you’re not ready to sever the TV and landline umbilical cord just yet, Virgin Media offers a number of bundles, called Collections, that group up everything you need and usually throw in a few extras to sweeten the deal along the way.
Pros & cons
- Fastest broadband widely available in the UK
- Option to dispense with line rental
- Collections offer a good range of products
- Not the cheapest broadband available
- Fibre optic broadband not available everywhere
- Confusing traffic management policy
Which package is right for me?
The up to 50Mbps is perfect for small households
Despite being Virgin’s slowest advertised speed, up to 50Mbps is still pretty nippy and perfect for smaller households and everyday browsing. With a speed like this, tasks like browsing and sharing photos should be a doddle and, if the connection is not being spread over too many devices, downloading and streaming content should happen at a fair old lick.
The up to 100Mbps package is ideal for heavy downloaders
With a speed of up to 100Mbps you can do a good deal of downloading and streaming without having to worry too much about things slowing down on you. This speed is ideal for households that do a lot of downloading and have multiple devices connected via WiFi.
The up to 152Mbps is the fastest broadband widely available in the UK
If you absolutely need to download everything in the shortest time possible then this is the speed for you. With up to 152Mbps you should be able to download everything you need at high speed and still support multiple devices all at the same time. This is ideal for households with heavy broadband usage.
What will I need?
A fibre optic broadband connection at your property
To receive Virgin Media’s broadband speeds, you’ll need a fibre optic connection at your property. Unfortunately, the coverage for fibre optic lines is not as widespread as ADSL lines, so, although coverage is expanding all the time, you may not be able to receive fibre broadband just yet. If you’re unsure whether you can receive it, put your postcode into the checker at the top of this page and it will display what is available in your area.
A wireless router to run all your devices via WiFi
With so many phones, consoles, laptops, tablets and TVs able to be connected to the net, you’ll need a decent wireless router to split the WiFi signal. Thankfully Virgin Media has seen fit to bestow one of the finest wireless routers available upon its broadband customers. The Super Hub uses both the 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz frequencies, ensuring you get the best speed available on all your mobile devices.
How do I switch?
Make sure you know what you want and when you want to switch
When you’ve found the package that matches what you’re looking for in these comparison pages, you can click on the blue ‘See Deal’ button and it will take you directly to the provider page. Make sure you read the terms and conditions on that page and, if you’re totally happy, get in contact with Virgin Media.
If you are already with another provider, you’ll need to tell them that you’re switching and to arrange to keep your phone number. If you are mid-term on another contract it may be worth waiting, as providers often charge a hefty fine if you cancel your contract early. You may also need a visit from a Virgin engineer to install a fibre optic line (if your property doesn’t have one).
Six essential questions before you buy
- Can I get Virgin’s fibre optic connection in my area?
- What speed will I need?
- What speed am I on now?
- Do I want a broadband only deal?
- Can I commit to an 18-month contract?
- Am I happy to switch providers?
Pick a package that’s perfect for you
It’s best to work out what you need before you commit as over-estimating your broadband consumption can cost you a fortune. You can find out your current broadband speed with our speed checker, and from that you can work out what speed you might need in the future. It’s only a good deal if it’s a good deal in the long run, so make sure you’re comfortable with the package before signing on the dotted line.
