EE will continue to provide network support for Virgin Media's mobile broadband services after the two broadband providers extended their agreement.
Following a competitive industry tender, Virgin Media opted to sign a new mobile virtual network operator deal with EE.
As such, the firm's mobile broadband network will continue to provide connectivity for Virgin Media dongle services.
Dana Strong, Virgin Media’s Chief Operating Officer, said her firm was taking advantage of the UK's "leading mobile network".
"Having worked together for over a decade, this partnership between the world’s first virtual operator and what is now Britain’s most comprehensive mobile network is moving into an exciting new phase," she stated.
Gerry McQuade, Chief Marketing Officer for Non-Consumer at EE, said the company was "delighted" to have been chosen again by Virgin Media.
"By choosing the EE network, Virgin Media will ensure its customers and around 14,000 employees continue to have access to the UK’s biggest and fastest mobile network," he claimed.
Virgin Media dongles are free to existing customers signing up on an 18-month contract, paying £8.17 per month for 1GB of data or £12.26 per month for 3GB.
Consumers who do not have Virgin Media TV, broadband or home phone services pay £10.21 per month for 1GB of data, or £15.32 per month for 3GB.
