Virgin Media broadband deals

Virgin Media stands apart from the other big broadband providers & it operates its own cable network, and specialises in fast or superfast broadband packages. It also offers line rental and a broad range of TV channels. 

What does Virgin Media offer?

All of Virgin Media's broadband packages offer much faster speeds, but it’s only available to 60% of households. Most come with line rental as standard, though Virgin's one of the few providers to offer a broadband-only option too (though this isn’t always cheaper).

Virgin Media broadband isn’t as widely available as other major UK broadband providers, but you can use our Broadband Unbundled tool to see if you can get it. 

Its TV service is one of the most comprehensive, and you can get a mobile service via Virgin Mobile, which offers both traditional pay monthly and Sim-only deals using the Vodafone network. See our Cheap Mobile Finder for the latest Virgin Mobile Sim-only deals. 

In 2021, Virgin Media merged with O2, one of the UK’s largest mobile networks. Currently, it operates both brands separately, but if you happen to have both services at the same time, you can access additional benefits such as double mobile data and a Virgin Media broadband speed boost via its Volt benefits. See Virgin Media for more.

How good is Virgin Media's customer service?

Virgin’s customer service is rated ‘OK’ overall.

In our November 2023 poll, 68% of just over 1,000 Virgin customers who answered scored it ‘great’ or 'OK' for customer service, versus almost 32% rating it ‘poor’. 

What Virgin Media broadband speeds can I get?

All Virgin Media's broadband packages are fibre optic - handy if you've a need for speed. There are four main options and all are unlimited so there's no monthly usage cap.  

Its different packages include: 

  • M50 (54Mb) 
  • M100 (108Mb) 
  • M200(213Mb)
  • M350 (362Mb) 
  • M500 (516Mb) 
  • Gig1 (1130Mb) 

Though right now Virgin broadband is only available to 60% of the country – use our postcode checker to see if you can get it. To find out which speed is right for you, see our Cheap Broadband guide.

Do Virgin Media offer broadband only options?

Although the majority of Virgin Media's broadband packages include line rental, they also provide broadband-only options. Historically, broadband-only deals tended to be pricier compared to those bundled with a line. However, we're seeing a shift, with broadband-only deals becoming more cost-effective.

Virgin Media broadband setup

If your property has had Virgin Media before, you’ll be able to set up your services with its QuickStart self-install box, which is free. It’ll tell you during the checkout process if you’re eligible for this and it’ll mean Virgin Media will supply you with the kit, cables and everything you need to get you up and running without the need of an engineer. 

If you’re not eligible, or your property hasn’t had Virgin Media before, you may have to pay £30 for an engineer to come out and install your service, which can take around two hours. Whether or not you pay this charge will usually be decided during the checkout process. Virgin Media will let you know if you’ll be required to pay anything before confirming your order.

Virgin Media line rental

The standard line rental option from Virgin Media is its Talk Weekends package, which offers inclusive calls to UK landlines and Virgin Mobile numbers at the weekend. 

There are four further packages to choose from including Talk More Anytime and International.

Virgin Media line TV

Virgin Media offers a huge amount of choice when it comes to telly and all come with the Virgin TV 360 box. There are four main packages to choose from including the Big, Bigger and Ultimate Volt bundles. 

Once you've chosen your basic package it's possible to mix and match, paying extra to add various channel bundles.

What deals and offers can new customers get when they join Virgin Media? Can existing customers get the same deals? 

New customers joining Virgin Media often have access to a range of deals and offers, which can vary. These may include discounted introductory rates, free installation, cashback incentives, or bundled services such as broadband, TV, and phone packages.Existing customers may not always have access to the exact same deals and offers as new customers. However, if you're an existing Virgin Media customer, and are out of contract, you could save by haggling. In our latest haggling poll, 89% had some success with haggling with Virgin.

Our top need-to-knows

1

Who we do and don't compare

This tool looks at 23 of the biggest providers, including the giants of BT, Sky and Virgin. Plus special deals we've found or blagged that we think are top picks. Yet there are also many small providers we can't list - which occasionally have cheap deals - so it's always worth checking direct with any local provider you know of. Let us know if you find a top deal we've missed and see which providers this tool covers.

2

Switching can save you £100s

Many get a cheap promo deal for broadband, line rent and/or TV, and stick with it when it ends, usually paying £100s/year more than they started with. Don't let it be you - compare now and see if you could save

3

Fast advertised speeds don't mean faster broadband

Providers only have to advertise the average speed received by at least 50% of customers between 8pm and 10pm. Your actual speed can depend on a host of factors - see the full checklist of tips in Broadband Speed Boosting.

4

Consider your need for speed

If it's just you and the dog, you're likely to be fine with standard speeds averaging around 11Mb. If you share a house, or you use the web for movie downloads, streaming or gaming, you may want to opt for faster speeds in excess of 30Mb.

5

Beware of mid-contract switching costs

Usually you'll pay for the rest of the contract plus termination fees. If your provider increases prices mid-contract and didn't warn you before you signed up, you can switch penalty-free within 30 days of notification of the price hike.
