Mobile connection types

3G broadband is now over a decade old, and with most modern devices it will seem painfully slow. Unfortunately though, in some areas it’s the best available signal.

4G broadband is much faster, with speeds rivaling those from a decent landline connection.

5G broadband is not yet widely available in the UK. When it arrives, it will be many times faster than a 4G connection.

Average speed:

?

'Up to' speeds

Broadband speeds are sometimes still advertised using an ‘up to’ figure, representing the upper end of the speeds available to most customers.

You may not be able to receive the displayed speed on your connection. Actual speeds will vary by location, particularly for mobile broadband.

Monthly data limit:

?

Mobile data bundles

Pretty much all mobile broadband deals come with a strict monthly data limit. Each time you go online you’ll use up some of that precious data – and watch videos is particularly data-hungry.

The bigger the data bundle you can afford, the more hours of Netflix before it runs out!

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.

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.
