Connection types

Standard broadband (ADSL) is the most basic, with low top speeds of 8-17Mbps. Speeds are often much lower at busy times of day, or if you live more than 1 mile from the exchange.

Fibre broadband (FTTC / Cable) uses a mix of fibre and copper wiring to deliver a faster, more reliable connection. Most advertise top speeds of 76Mbps, while Virgin’s cable network can go to 350Mbps.

Fibre-to-home broadband (FTTP) offers the highest speeds by running full-fibre cables right into your property. FTTP is currently only available to a very limited number of households.

Average speeds

Broadband speeds are now advertised using an average figure, representing the speed achieved by at least 50% of users at peak times.

You may not be able to receive the displayed speed on your connection. Actual speeds will vary by location, but each provider should be able to test your line and give you a more accurate indication of the speed you will achieve.

Gigabit broadband at over 1000Mbps is only available on ‘full-fibre’ or ‘fibre-to-premises’ connections. This connection type is currently only available to a very limited number of households in the UK. We recommend you search using your postcode to check availability.

Monthly Data limit:

?

Data caps

Some providers offer deals with a set quantity of data per month. These deals are rare nowadays for home broadband, as with the advent of HD and 4K video and game streaming, many users will not wish to be limited.

However capped data deals can be cheaper than unlimited ones, so it may be worth considering if you’re not a big streamer.

Contract length:

?

Contract terms

Broadband deals are now offered with a range of different contract lengths.

If you find a particularly cheap deal, it can be a good plan to lock it in for 18 months.

If instead you prefer flexibility, 1-month / no-contract broadband deals are fantastic choice, though they do tend to cost more up front.

Calls bundles

If you’re the type to spend hours chatting on the landline, you can make huge savings by bundling your calls in with your broadband.

Most providers offer a range of calls packages, so whether you’re after the odd evening gossip, or a marathon mid-day gabfest, you should be able to find something to suit.

Always check the provider’s terms – some numbers may not be included in your free call-time.

TV bundles

For many of us, TV and broadband now go hand in hand. So why not bundle up and grab a deal that covers both?

TV packages often come with sophisticated set-top boxes to let you pause and record live TV, as well as subscriptions to broadcast and streaming-on-demand services.

Cost formats & sorting

You can choose how the price of each deal is displayed. All prices include line-rental.

Monthly cost is the total cost per month at the beginning of the contract. Some deals will revert to a higher price after an initial offer period.

First year cost is the estimated total cost of the first 12 months on this broadband deal. Comparing first year costs can sometimes give a more accurate idea of how much you will pay overall.

You can also sort your results by price or speed, high to low or low to high.

Everything you need to know about Virgin Media

Virgin Media has 5 million broadband customers in the UK.

It was founded in 2006 as a merger between NTL and Telewest and has gone on to become one of the biggest telecoms companies in the country.

It’s one of the few quad-play providers in the UK, offering broadband, phone, TV and mobile services.

You can bundle all these services into one handy package, if you’re so inclined.

Virgin installs its own cables to provide broadband. Unlike BT, Sky, TalkTalk and the rest, it doesn’t rely on using Openreach’s fibre wires to deliver internet, and so has a totally different package for users.

You’ll see Virgin broadband listed at speeds which are nice round numbers, 50Mbps, 100Mbps and 200Mbps rather than the 38Mbps or 76Mbps that other ISPs using Openreach’s network can offer.

Most Virgin broadband deals come with 12 month contracts, so they’re not as onerous as the 18 or 24 month contracts you may be locked into elsewhere.

There is the odd Virgin 30-day rolling contract but it does come with a hefty payment upfront and you will pay more on average per month for the same service.

What can you get with Virgin Media?

ADSL broadband

Virgin doesn’t do ADSL (up to 17Mbps). Its entry-level package starts at 50Mbps, which is already faster than most fibre broadband.

Calls

Inclusive weekend calls come with no extra cost for the first 12 months of many Virgin broadband deals.

Fibre

Virgin does do fast broadband but it’s not fibre, it’s their own cable network.

Virgin’s VIVID deals offer four tiers of broadband at speeds up to 50Mbps, 100Mbps, 200Mbps and 300Mbps.

TV

You can add TV to any Virgin Media broadband and phone package. They come in three flavours: Player, Mix and Full House.

Each comes with a 500GB Virgin TV V6 Tivo box, with which you can pause, rewind and record live TV.

Player TV gets you 70 channels with all the essential free-to-air entertainment and news including BBC iPlayer, ITVPlayer, Channel 4 and VEVO.

Mix offers over 150 channels and players, with more TV favourites including Sky Sports News, Sky 1, Sky Living, and Boomerang and Cartoon Network for the kids.

Full House gives you access to over 230 channels including up to 50 in HD. You get premium channels including BT Sport HD 1, 2 and 3, CBeebies, Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel, the above Sky channels as well as UK TV Gold, MTV HD, and Comedy Central HD.

Prices start from £33 a month.

Mobiles

Virgin Mobile is one of the largest SIM Only and contract providers in the UK, with over 4 million subscribers as of September 2017.

Virgin SIMs use the EE network for 4G data and calls, giving it coverage across 98% of the UK.

Mobile broadband

Virgin’s mobile broadband comes in both SIM Only (up to 20Mbps) and MiFi (up to 150Mbps) formats. From £4 a month for 1GB data all the way up the fastest package at 10GB data for £20 a month.
