This table has been limited to display a maximum of 10 deals; sorted by the highest download speed first.

* The "average" download speed displayed in Mb is the speed available to 50% of customers with this product during peak time (between 8pm and 10pm). The actual speed you will get depends on a variety of factors such as your cabling, your area, how far you are from the telephone exchange as well as time of day. The majority of providers will tell you the speed you will likely receive when you begin your online sign up — this may differ from the average speed displayed on our table.

The deals available at your postcode are subject to local availability. The provider will confirm availability for your line.

Money services are provided at no cost to you, but we may receive a commission from the companies we refer you to.

Why is Virgin Media good?

In your search for a new broadband provider, you may have noticed a lot of hype about Virgin Media, with claims that it’s the best broadband available. When it comes to speed, there’s some truth to this claim.

Virgin Media is the widest available provider of ultrafast broadband, as well as a leading name for TV packages. However, it’s definitely more costly than many other providers. So, regardless of the hype and impressive speeds, you should always research and compare broadband deals according to your personal needs. 

Virgin broadband deals

Let’s take a look at the deals currently available from Virgin Media:

Virgin Media M50 Fibre Broadband

Average speed: 54Mbps

Currently offered with no set-up fees, this 12-month contract is perfect for small households who like to stream and download music, movies and TV. While other competitors can beat these speeds, their highest offering is likely to only reach 60 – 70Mbps, whereas 54Mbps is the first level of Virgin’s broadband services.

Virgin Media M100 Fibre Broadband

Average speed: 108Mbps

Also offered with no set-up fees, this 12-month package offers faster speeds than just about any other widely-available provider. Average households, including those with avid gamers and streamers, should be perfectly happy with these speeds as it can support up to nine devices. 

Virgin Media M200 Fibre Broadband

Average speed: 213Mbps

At these speeds, Virgin Media leaves other providers behind. Multi-device households that enjoy gaming and 4K streaming shouldn’t have any problems at these speeds, and well over 10 devices can be supported. No set-up fees are needed and the contract also lasts one year.

Virgin Media M350 Fibre Broadband

Average speed: 362Mbps

Challenging speeds of even some full fibre providers, truly speedy connections can be enjoyed on this 12-month broadband package. It’s also offered without set-up fees, so it’s ideal for hardcore gamers and streamers and larger households.

Virgin Media broadband and phone deals

All of the broadband packages mentioned above are available with additional phone plans. Virgin Media does not require you to have a working phone line to use its broadband, and it delivers its call packages over its exclusive network.

Can I get Virgin Media home phone without broadband?

Yes, you can.  If you currently receive broadband from another supplier or simply don’t need it, then you can opt for call-only deals from Virgin.

Virgin Media rolling contracts

If you aren’t able to commit to a 12-month contract, perhaps because you plan to move home or you don’t want the regular hassle of renewing your plan, then Virgin Media also offers rolling contracts. 

Rolling contracts with Virgin last 30 days and need 30 days’ notice to be cancelled. Unlike the yearly contracts, there will be an upfront fee to pay. You can enjoy rolling contracts for both phone and broadband or broadband-only packages.

Virgin Media TV, phone and broadband

Virgin Media is also a leading name in the UK for premium TV channels. You can add these to your broadband package, but must also take a call plan to complete the bundle. Currently you can choose from the following:

Virgin Media Big TV Bundle

116 channels

This includes Freeview channels, HD for terrestrial channels like BBC and premium channels including Blaze, CBSreality, CBSdrama and Paramount Network. You won’t get any Sky channels with this bundle.

Virgin Media Big + Drama TV bundle

149 channels

As above, but with the addition of more premium channels, including Sky One, Sky Two, Sky Witness, Comedy Central and Fox.

Virgin Media Bigger TV bundle

222 channels

With this channel, you’ll get everything that’s included with the Big + Drama bundle, but with even more premium channels, like MTV, National Geographic, History and Drama. This package also provides access to several Sky Sports and BT Sports channels.

Virgin Media Bigger + Movies TV bundle

245 Channels 

The same as Bigger, this bundle gives you access to all the same channels, plus movie options in the form of Sky Cinema passes, ranging from Sky Cinema Comedy to Sky Cinema Premiere HD.

Virgin Media Ultimate Oomph TV bundle

261 channels

You get all the same channels as with Bigger + Movies, but you’ll also get over a dozen children’s channels. 

Virgin Media and Netflix/Amazon Prime Video

Your Virgin Media TV bundle won’t include Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, but you can access your accounts through your Virgin Media set top box.

Virgin Media Bundles

If you are interested in using Virgin Media for more than one service, be sure to check out its bundles. Bundle deals offer TV, phone and broadband in one plan, usually discounted and with added perks. Currently the most complete bundle is the ‘Ultimate Oomph bundle’, which offers:

  • M500 fibre optic broadband

  • Two Virgin Media set top boxes

  • Anytime calls to UK landlines, mobiles and 0845/0870 numbers

  • Unlimited mobile data SIM card 

Can I get Virgin Media?

This depends on your location so you should use the Virgin Media postcode checker. If you aren’t covered by Virgin Media, you may still be able to use it as a supplier for mobile broadband, it claims a network for mobile that covers 99% of the UK.

Virgin Media mobile broadband

If you are unable to get Virgin Media’s home broadband due to lack of coverage in your area, it also offers mobile broadband. While not always the speediest or most cost-effective choice, having a Wi-Fi connection that can go anywhere with you might be a real benefit.

Mobile broadband requires an upfront cost and comes either as a rolling monthly contract or a 12-month contract. Currently Virgin Media offers 3GB, 6GB and 15GB data packages. Other additions include:

  • Data rollover – whatever you don’t use is added to next month’s allowance

  • 43 roaming destinations

  • Data-free messaging from the major instant messenger apps and social media

  • 3.5 million free Wi-Fi hotspots

  • Spending caps

Virgin new customer deals

As a new customer, you can take advantage of several Virgin Media deals. Most often, this will mean a free set-up or a discounted overall price as part of a limited time deal. If you’re interested in subscribing to Virgin Media in the future, you definitely should wait for one of these deals to roll around.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a phone line with Virgin Media?

You don’t need a phone line with Virgin Media, but you will need to install a special Virgin Media socket. 

I can’t get fibre-optic broadband – can I get Virgin Media fibre?

Unfortunately not. However, just because you can’t receive fibre optic from Openreach lines, you might be lucky enough to be able to connect to Virgin.

Virgin Media delivers connections through its own exclusive ‘coaxial’ cables, so even being able to receive Openreach fibre optic broadband won’t necessarily mean that Virgin’s network covers your area as well, or vice versa. You should use the Virgin Media postcode checker to see if your area is covered. 

Is Virgin Media installation free? 

If you have a Virgin Media socket already, you should be able to set up your connection yourself. If you need an engineer to visit and install one of these sockets, there may be an extra fee. 

How do I switch to Virgin Media?

Switching to Virgin Media is easy, you can do so through an online comparison tool or directly through the provider. However, in some cases you may need to tell your current provider that you are changing as it may not be prompted to stop your service by Openreach (who would usually activate the same line under a new provider, but in Virgin Media’s case, these lines are not needed).
