Virgin Media 'FantasticALL' bundle deals offer broadband, calls and TV from £27 a month
If you’ve been flicking through the papers, spotted Virgin Media’s FantasicALL deals and wanted to see what the all the fuss was about, we’ve laid out the information and done the research for you.
The fibre-only bundle gives you unlimited downloads with speeds up to 50Mbps for £27 a months on a 12-month contract. To get your service set-up, there’s a one-off £20 fee to cover the cost.
After the first year, you’ll notice your monthly bill go up to £33 a month. If you’re happy with this no problem you can get in touch with Virgin Media to restart your contract. If not, then would be a good time to shop around.
Download speeds up to 50Mbps is faster than the fibre packages offered by most of the other providers which usually give you speeds up to 38Mbps. It’s more than enough for small to medium-sized households to stream films, do the shopping and download albums all at the same time.
It’s cheaper than BT’s Unlimited Infinity 1 (up to 52Mbps) deal for £29.99 a month but there is £80 cashback up for grabs with BT.
With Virgin Media’s package there’s no phone line or line rental, it’s simply just a fast connection to the internet. If you want the chance to make calls you’ll have to jump up a package.
For fibre and calls it’s £32 a month. The broadband, contract length and set-up fee remains the same there’s just the added calls feature.
Faster broadband for less
The inclusive anytime calls allow you to chat away to your mates all night without running up any extra charges.You can make calls to UK landlines, mobiles and 0845/0870 numbers.
When signing up you’ll have to check if you live on a street where Virgin Media has laid its fibre cables. If you do but you don’t have a Virgin Media phone line at home you’ll need to pay an additional £40 for an engineer to come out and install one.
If you like the sound of these bundles but want faster broadband speeds with some TV thrown in, you can get Virgin Media’s Mix bundle for £45 a month over 12 months.
In this bundle you’ll have download speeds up to 100Mbps with unlimited usage so you can stream and download as much as your device can handle. As well as inclusive calls you’ll also get more than 150 channels on the V6 TV box. You’ll get the standard 80 free-to-view channels plus a few extra like Sky 1, MTV and Cartoon Network for the kids.
With the V6 TV box you’re getting a fancy piece of tech to connect to your telly. You can record up to 6 shows, pause and rewind live TV and add extra apps like Netflix and BBC iPlayer.
Just like the other packages mentioned you’ll have to pay £20 upfront to cover the cost of activating your service. After the first year the monthly cost goes up a tenner to £55 a month.
