Virgin Media has launched a new special offer for households signing up for high-speed broadband alongside landline services.
The broadband provider is offering six months' half-price on its 30Mb, 50Mb and 100Mb broadband tariffs, enabling consumers to make significant savings.
First of all, the XL 30Mb broadband package is available at £9.25 for six months, down from the standard monthly price of £18.50.
Subscribers also receive a free Super Hub wireless broadband router, 10GB of online storage space, 50 free photo prints per month, automatic file backup, free IT security software and a free email account.
A free installation worth £40 also adds to the savings possible when taking out a 30Mb broadband and landline deal.
For consumers seeking 50Mb download speeds, the six-month discount sees customers pay just £12.50 per month, rather than the standard £25.
Virgin Media claims that customers on the 50Mb tariff typically have access to broadband speeds around twice those provided by its main rivals BT and Sky.
As with the XL 30Mb package, the XXL 50Mb broadband deal enables customers to download as much data as they want during the month.
Subscribers benefit from all the same features, but have access to an additional 50 free photo prints per month.
Households seeking ultra-fast 100Mb services from Virgin Media can now pay just £17.50 per month, down from the normal price of £35.
Consumers can also sign up for 100Mb broadband without a landline, but this service carries a monthly charge of £45.
Some 6.5 million homes – accounting for roughly a quarter of the UK population – are now able to take advantage of Virgin Media's fibre broadband service.
The broadband provider is rolling out its ultra-fast broadband network with some urgency, having only launched the service in December 2010.
