Comparing Virgin broadband deals

Virgin Media is very flexible when it comes to the broadband deals it offers, making it easy to customise your package to suit your lifestyle.

In fact, Virgin was one of the first providers in the country to offer broadband, phone, TV and mobile, all in one package. It’s also one of the only providers to offer contracts for students and 30-day rolling contracts for the majority of its services.

Virgin Media broadband works through its own network of cables and doesn’t require households to have a landline, meaning it’s also one of the few providers to offer broadband without line rental.


Frequently asked questions

  • VIVID – a superfast fibre optic broadband service, which uses a different type of cable to Sky and BT. You can choose from four download speeds:
    1. VIVID 50 (average speed 54 Mbps)

    3. VIVID 200 (average speeed 213 Mbps)
    4. mega speedy VIVID 350 (Average speed 362 Mbps)

  • added extras – regardless of which connection you choose you’ll get a host of extras thrown in, including internet security with Web Safe and F-Secure Safe, 10 Virgin Media Mail email addresses and WiFi on the London Underground.

But, before you sign up, it’s also worth noting that:

  • Broadband isn’t truly unlimited, so despite having access to some great speeds you may find that traffic management causes your connection to slow at peak times, like many other broadband suppliers. If you don't want this, avoid providers that say 'fair usage applies'.
  • Virgin Media offers limited public WiFi – rivals like BT have public hotspots that customers can use.

To find out whether Virgin Media is available at your home, simply select the deal you’re interested in and enter your full address. 

Remember that internet speed will depend on your location, so it’s best to do a broadband speed check when comparing broadband packages.
