          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.

          Availability

          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

          Pros

          • Fastest broadband widely available in the UK
          • Option to dispense with line rental
          • Collections offer a good range of products

          Cons

          • 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

          1. Can I get Virgin’s fibre optic connection in my area?
          2. What speed will I need?
          3. What speed am I on now?
          4. Do I want a broadband only deal?
          5. Can I commit to an 18-month contract?
          6. Am I happy to switch providers?

          Cable.co.uk recommends

          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.

          Hi Mrs Ames

          Thanks for your question. Unfortunately Virgin Media don't give advance notice of when they are planning on upgrading an area. However, if you sign up here we'll drop you a note once it's available.

          We live in Lathom in Lancashire and our postcode is WN8 8UE Is there a chance that cable television will be introduced to our area anytime soon?

          For those complaining about Virgin media speed my advice is to connect your computer via cable first to the router and run the speed test and make sure the testing server shown is Virgin Media. If you're not getting the speed you pay for then contact technical support.

          Wireless connection does not guarantee the same speed and it depends if the channel your router is using is used by other wireless devices in the area.

          Where I live there are too many wireless connections and I can only get 70MB download via WiFi. I use cable mostly and I get a reliable and stable 125MB download speed all the time and 11MB upload.

          I have Virgin XXL fibre optic Broadband and am paying for 100Mb/s basic plus the 'free' upgrade taking it, supposedly, to 150 odd Mb/sec. Since before Christmas 2013 the service has been appalling - even outrageous. Constantly re booting the modem and doing the pin reset, but makes no difference. Very often my received download speed is 1/2Mb/sec - often less than 1Mb/sec. The highest i have ever recorded was around 27Mb/sec during last year. Strange thing is ( ;-) ) that all over Easter 2014 the service was acceptable - no offices sucking all the power? Cannot continue with this and the help is no help. Have made countless calls and the situation will improve for a few hours and then drops straight back to almost useless. Guess they have well and truly oversold and, yet, still expect to collect the £45 odd a month. Going to give them one last chance to sort, after which intend to get BT Openreach - run side by side for a month and dump the loser.

          Hi,

          does anyone know if the new town of cranbrook, Exeter will have access to virginmedia broadband. As the property we are moving to has only just been built and its not registered on any of the 'find your postcode' systems.

          Thanks in advance for any replies.

          What? I have in peak hours D/U 80/10 Mbps/offpeak 120/15 Mbps average tested on speedtest.net with uk and europe servers and I`m having up to 12 devices simultaneously(3 LAN + 9 WiFi) using simple DLink dir615 router, IDK where are you guys getting such low speed? I pay 38 quid a month for UP TO 120 Mbps without phone/tv/etc, just fibre optic broadband three years already and have no regrets that I chose Virgin. Yes, it is a bit expensive, first two years had 55 Mbps for that money (advertised as 50Mbps) but if you have to deal with 8 people in house plus have everyday duty as online in-game administrator on several game servers - there is no other choice - virgin truly provides fastest connection available for private customers here, on this island.

          The service we receive from virgin media is shocking,signed up for the 30mbps service,very rarely get anything higher than 5mbps. And during the evening it slows down even more,I'm actually getting a faster connection on my phone!
