Reasons to choose Virgin Media

  • No need for line rental if you opt for a broadband-only deal - cable to the property allows for broadband-only packages
  • Fastest widely available provider in the UK, up to 200Mb download speeds, more double that of BT FttC, which is currently at 76Mbps
  • Consistently the fastest of the big national providers in our monthly speed test report
  • Super Hub router standard on all deals offers 802.11ac advanced wireless technology with faster speeds and longer range
  • Equipment is 'rented', meaning Virgin provides free repairs and replacements (provided that the customer hasn't abused the equipment)
  • No switching hassle - different technology, can run concurrently with ADSL while one or the other is set up
  • TV services provided by underground high speed cables so not affected by storms or heavy usage of your broadband service
  • With Netflix on Tivo, Virgin Media has more TV Box Sets on demand on the latest shows than any other online subscription service
  • Rated highest for reliability out of all TV with broadband providers by Broadband.co.uk vistors

Possible downsides

  • Virgin’s traffic management policies may reduce your broadband speed at peak times, although this only affects peer to peer file sharing traffic and upload speeds for the top 5% of uploaders
  • Only available to around 65% of the UK, ruling out the vast majority of rural areas
  • Relatively slow upload speeds of up to 3Mb, up to 6Mb or up to 12Mb - could be a problem if you upload videos or use cloud backup services
