Virgin Media broadband

Do you remember the broadband providers NTL, Telewest and Virgin.net? Well now they have united under one umbrella - Virgin Media.

At its very formation, Virgin Media changed the broadband industry by becoming the very first internet service provider to offer quad play services. This means that it offers TV, broadband, phone and mobiles under one roof - and at the present time it remains the only UK provider to offer these four services.

Who is Virgin Media broadband ideal for?

Anyone looking to combine services into one simple monthly payment will be drawn towards the Virgin Media broadband range. In terms of its broadband only packages, size M will be sufficient for most users and unlimited downloads make it ideal for families. Those who want extra speed should consider paying more for either the broadband L or broadband XL package.

What do you need to get Virgin Media broadband?

  • Virgin Media broadband can be accessed with either a fibre optic cable (on cable) or with a BT phone line (non cable).
  • A cable modem or router is required.
  • PC users require Windows 2000 pro or Windows XP.
  • Mac users require Mac OS 9.0+ (including OSX).

What else does Virgin Media broadband have to offer?

The main attraction for Virgin Media is to combine services. Let's take a look at their top of the range packages for each service area:

  • TV size XL - Includes more than 140 digital TV channels, Virgin TV on-demand and the V+ service.
  • Virgin TV on demand allows you to access more than 500 films (costing between £1.50 and £3.75 each time). The V+ service allows you to pause and rewind television or record two programmes while you watch a third.

    • Phone size XL - Includes unlimited anytime UK landline calls.
    • Virgin Mobile - A pay-as-you-go deal with up to 500 free texts and minutes along with a free 60mins airtime bonus if you take out one of the VIP packages.

    Much will depend on your TV/phone/mobile habits as to which of these deals you opt for. However, with packages as low as 4 for £40 (the equivalent of £10 for each service) its clear there are large savings to be made and Sky has a true competitor in the TV/broadband sector.

Virgin Media

Virgin Media is the first UK company to offer TV, Broadband, Phone and Mobile all from one place. With innovative services like ultra-fast fibre optic broadband and the V+ HD box that allows you to record and rewind live TV Virgin Media has become a leading UK communication and entertainment company.

How to understand your usage

Your broadband usage, measured in megabytes (MB) and gigabytes (GB), can be a puzzling subject to fully understand. It's not easy to be truly accurate with how much broadband you're consuming on a monthly basis.

That's why we've cut through the technical jargon by creating three different types of broadband user. Simply match your activities to one of the user types below:

Light users A single user, or perhaps there's two of you, who like to browse the internet, send emails and maybe download a few songs during the evenings and at weekends.
Look for

Packages with 2GB of use or more

Medium users Perhaps you're a small family, or a couple who like to watch iPlayer or catch-up TV a few times a week, on top of the usual website browsing, email sending and occasional Skype calls.
Look for

Packages with 20GB or more

Heavy users You're either a large family or shared household. You like to stream TV or Netflix, perhaps play some online video games and generally enjoy living in a connected world.
Look for

Packages with unlimited usage

How to understand the different broadband speeds

There are three different types of broadband speeds that are available to you when you take out a new deal. These are ADSL, fibre and superfast fibre.

ADSL

ADSL is broadband that's delivered into your house via a telephone line and used by the majority of households in Britain.

These deals offer speeds of up to 16 megabits per second (Mb). ADSL broadband is generally fast enough for you to stream television without too much buffering or pausing and certainly fast enough for day-to-day internet browsing and emailing.

Fibre

Using fibre optic cables to transfer data, you can achieve speeds of up to 38Mb with a fibre broadband connection.

You will happily watch live TV and play online video games with a fibre broadband connection offering minimal delays or lags.

Superfast fibre

Superfast refers to fibre optic broadband connections with speeds over 38Mb.

You may opt for a superfast fibre broadband connection if you require large downloads delivered to you quickly, or were a regular player of online video games that needed a faster than average connection in order to play seamlessly.

Sorry, there were no results for your search. Try adjusting the filters.
