About Virgin Media

Founded by Richard Branson in 1989, Virgin Media is one of the most familiar providers in the UK broadband market, supplying some of the fastest internet speeds available thanks to its own dedicated cable infrastructure.

Its superfast, high-bandwidth connections allow for astonishingly fast and high-quality gaming, streaming and downloading — all with minimal slowdowns at peak periods or buffering when multiple people want to use the internet at the same time.

However, Virgin Media deals don't stop at great speeds. It's also a 'quad play' provider that also offers home phone, mobile phone and pay-TV services. So you can get all the connectivity and entertainment your family could ever need from the same provider for a single, bundled monthly fee.

With a range of high-speed broadband deals to choose from, great offers for new customers, and the ability to build an internet, phone and TV package tailored precisely to your needs, Virgin Media offers something for everyone.

However, because of its high speeds and comprehensive packages, Virgin Media broadband deals are particularly suited to busy households with a high demand for internet and other telecoms services.

Key features of Virgin Media include:

  • Superfast, ultrafast and even gigabit cable broadband
  • Wide range of phone, mobile and TV services
  • Free Virgin Media Super Hub
  • Advanced TV 360 set-top box with a wide range of packages - pause, record, rewind and restart live TV and use catch-up services
  • 18-month contracts

Virgin Media broadband packages

Virgin Media's broadband connections are delivered by its own cable network which plugs fibre-based cables straight into people's homes, rather than just the local street cabinet.

This means it can offer significantly higher speeds than the typical superfast fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband services that depend on Openreach's network, so there are a range of high-speed packages to choose from.

More broadband deals

Even the most basic Virgin Media broadband and phone deals offer incredibly fast sppeds. They start with average download speeds of 54Mbps, going up to 516Mbps packages for heavier users and even an astonishing 1Gbps for certain parts of the UK. They also include a Virgin phone line and free weekend calls to UK landlines and Virgin Mobile numbers.

You can add a number of additional options, including free weekend calls to all mobiles and evening or anytime calls to UK or international numbers, depending on your needs.

Virgin Media TV and broadband

Virgin Media offers a range of TV packages that can be added to any broadband deal. These include Mixit TV, which offers 110 channels, as well as the bigger Maxit bundle, which ups the channel count to more than 230, including premium services such as Sky One, Fox and a range of HD services.

In addition to this, you can add movies or sports packages from other providers to your deal, as Virgin Media offers the full range of Sky Cinema channels and a Sports package that gives you access to both Sky Sports and BT Sport.

Virgin Media TV, broadband and phone deals

You can also get a bundle deal that includes all of the above, for a Virgin Media broadband, phone and TV deal that covers all of your needs.

Virgin Media broadband only

If you're just looking for a fast way to get online, Virgin Media broadband is also available on its own, with no requirement to sign up for a Virgin phone line or TV deal. However, check the cost of broadband-only compared to broadband with a phone line, as in some areas it might actually work out to be cheaper to get both.

Can I get Virgin Media broadband?

While Virgin Media isn't as widely available as fibre broadband services that use Openreach's network, it is still available to around 52% of UK properties. Use the Uswitch Postcode Checker to see if you can get Virgin Media in your local area.

Virgin Media offers for existing customers

If you're already a customer of Virgin Media and want to upgrade your services, the company has lots of offers and deals available. You can see what's on offer at the moment by logging into your account on the Virgin Media website.

Virgin Media new customer offers

Virgin Media frequently has great deals for new customers, with users often being able to get as much as 50% off the monthly cost of their package for the first 12 months.

In addition to this, the firm sometimes runs limited-time flash sales where you can often get free gadgets such as games consoles or TVs, so it pays to keep an eye out for what's on offer at any given time.

Virgin Media student offers

If you're heading off to uni, Virgin Media also offers some dedicated student broadband deals. These include exclusive 30-day rolling contract offers for its superfast broadband and phone packages that aren't available anywhere else — ideal if you're only going to need broadband for a limited period.

Virgin Media broadband speeds

Because it uses its own dedicated fibre network, Virgin Media is able to offer significantly faster speeds than many other broadband providers. The options available are listed below.

M100 Fibre Broadband

Next up is the M100 package, with average download speeds of 108Mbps and average upload speeds of 10Mbps. Virgin says this is best suited for busier households with between five and nine devices.

M200 Fibre Broadband

For the biggest homes, where ten or more devices will need to connect to the internet at the same time, Virgin's M200 package offers average download speeds of 213MBps and upload speeds of 20Mbps.

M350 Fibre Broadband

Customers with a very high amount of usage can take advantage of Virgin's M350 fibre broadband package, which offers average download speeds of 362Mbps and upload speeds of 34Mbps.

Virgin notes this is the UK's fastest widely-available broadband deal, so if you're a heavy user and want to stream in 4K on multiple devices and download the largest files, this is the right package for you.

M500 Fibre Broadband

Finally, users with the most demand can enjoy ultrafast download speeds of up to 516Mbps, with equally impressive upload speeds of 35Mbps, on average. It only comes with Virgin Media’s Ultimate Oomph bundle, though, which is an all-encompassing deal that includes a TV package with over 270 channels, anytime landline calls and an unlimited SIM card for your mobile.

It’d be pretty difficult to max out this incredibly fast package, but you may feel safer with it if you’re in a home with multiple ‘power-users’, where everyone is playing 4K video games and using large, demanding computer programmes on lots of devices each.

What's the Virgin Media broadband speed in my area?

The nature of Virgin's cable network means there should be much less variation in what actual speeds households should be able to receive, so if Virgin Media is available in your area, you should usually expect to receive speeds very close to what is advertised.

To see if Virgin Media broadband is available to your home, you can use our Postcode Checker.

Virgin Media installation

New customers will require Virgin Media to send an engineer to install the cable and get everything working. You can arrange this when you place your order.

However, homes that have had Virgin Media installed previously can use the firm's QuickStart self-install, which lets you get started in just a few simple steps.

Is there a Virgin Media installation charge?

Most Virgin Media broadband and TV packages will require an installation fee, which is typically £35.

Virgin Media installation time

If you're able to use the QuickStart option, you'll receive all the equipment you need via courier or click and collect, with QuickStart packs usually sent within three working days for the UK mainland, or within four working days if you live in Northern Ireland.

For engineer visits, you'll be able to choose your date when you place the order, usually within around 14 days. Once at your home, it should take between 30 minutes and two hours to get things up and running.

About your Virgin Media router

Virgin Media's Super Hub wireless router is the fastest and most advanced wireless router on offer from the provider. It's capable of connecting up to 20 devices at once with wireless speeds up to seven times faster than the UK average, depending on your package.

It takes advantage of the 5GHz frequency, which is more advanced and less congested than the 2.5GHz frequencies found on many other providers' included routers. This means you can game, stream and download wirelessly without worrying as much about slowdown.

How to set up your Virgin Media router

If you're using the QuickStart service, your Virgin Media router should be very easy to get up and running, as you'll just need to plug in a few cables. You can find specific steps for each model of Virgin Media router on its website.

Virgin Media internet protection

The ISP offers a range of services to help keep your browsing safe, including advanced parental controls and tough anti-virus and anti-malware software.

Virgin Media Switched on Families

The provider's 'Switched on Families' suite of services helps ensure your family is safe online, whether this is at home or when you're out and about.

There's also an interactive guide on its website to help you understand the options available and how best you can protect your kids, whatever age they are and whatever content they want to view.

Virgin Media Web Safe

When you're at home, Virgin Media Web Safe protects any device that's connected to your network.

This can protect you when you're shopping online or using banking services by blocking fake and fraudulent sites, as well as protecting against viruses. It's included for free with all broadband packages.

Virgin Media F-Secure SAFE

F-Secure SAFE services extend protection to up to five devices, including mobile phones, tablets, PCs and Macs to keep you safe from viruses, fraudsters and theft wherever you are.

Virgin Media customers can get this free for the first three months of their contract, after which is costs just £3 a month (or £30 a year).

Virgin Media parental controls

Virgin Media's parental controls can be personalised to your needs, letting you block access to inappropriate websites or categories of content, as well as set limits on your kids’ screen time.
