Virgin Media has today revamped its broadband packages in a bid to bring super-fast connections to areas not covered by its fibre optic network. With no extra charge for the faster service, it’s a great incentive for customers who live in range of its LLU network to change provider. But if you’re still not convinced, here we name the Top 10 reasons for switching to Virgin Media
1 Virgin Media broadband connections are fast
Virgin Media customers who opt for their new National broadband deals can expect a broadband connection of up to 20Mb. That’s super-fast by anyone’s reckoning.
2 No more paying extra for the fastest connections
Virgin Media places no restrictions on speed and will deliver the fastest connection possible irrespective of the monthly tariff being paid by customers.
3 Start really enjoying all the entertainment the web has to offer
According to a study conducted by Ofcom, the average UK broadband connection is a positively snail-paced 3.6Mb. By way of contrast, a 20Mb connection you’ll be able to stream video much more smoothly and download music and videos in a trice.
4 Cut-price home phone bundles
All customers who take a Virgin Media phone line get the Talk Weekends bundle thrown in for no extra charge. This entitles them to unlimited calls to UK landlines all weekend long.
Alternatively, those who opt to add the Unlimited phone option, as the name suggests, get unlimited calls to UK landlines at any time of the day or night for just £7.95 extra per month.
5 Cheaper bills from a single provider
From hereon in Virgin Media customers are no longer obliged to take a BT Broadband phone line and will instead be able to pay £11 per month for a Virgin Media phone line. This makes paying your bills immeasurably less complicated and faster.
6 12-month contracts
All Virgin Media broadband packages are sold with a 12-month contract. That means there’s no need to worry about being tied-in to a long-term deal.
7 Free wireless
All consumers who opt for a National broadband package get a free Netgear wireless router, bringing an end to having to field complaints from irate family members and friends desperate to get online.
8 UK-based customer support
Fed up of unintelligible customer support agents who struggle to comprehend your every utterance? Virgin Media’s expert teams are all UK based, so you’ll never need to spell out an entire sentence phonetically ever again…
9 Free, secure storage
Virgin Media’s back up service V Stuff allows you back up any file on your computer and store it online. And there’s room enough for an entire music collection, photo library and a raft of vitally important documents.
Better still, you can also use V Stuff to print your photos for free, share them with your friends and family, or simply create more room on your PC.
10 Free internet security
Safe-as-houses anti-virus software from PC Guard is provided free of charge with all National broadband packages to keep your details out of the clutches of cyber criminals and other nefarious types who populate the web.
