Virgin Media’s network of cables brings lickety-split broadband and comprehensive telly packages to millions of UK homes – but it still isn’t available everywhere just yet. Find out if you can get it where you are, using our simple tool.

*Average speeds are based on the download speeds of at least 50% of customers at peak time(8pm to 10pm). Speed can be affected by a range of technical and environmental factors. The speed you receive where you live may be lower than that listed above. You can check the estimated speed to your property prior to purchasing.

Virgin Media’s services include broadband, landline, and TV packages. You can get just one of those, two, or all three in a big bundle – with the option to add a mobile plan from O2 or giffgaff, if you like.

When it comes to broadband speeds, Virgin Media doesn't skimp on performance. Average download speeds range from a solid 54Mbps to an incredible 630Mbps. In some areas, the lucky residents can access Virgin Media's Gig1 broadband, boasting speeds of 1Gbps, or 1,130Mbps.

And as for Virgin Media TV, you can pick from its smaller package with a respectable 100+ TV channels, all the way up to 230+ with Sky Sports and Sky Cinema.

What if I can't get Virgin Media?

Not within Virgin Media's reach? No need to fret – there are plenty of fish in the broadband sea.

For ultrafast speeds, you may be lucky enough to live in an area where gigabit broadband (1Gbps, or 1,000Mbps) is available, from providers such as BT, Vodafone, Hyperoptic, or Community Fibre.

Only a few, select areas are eligible for broadband that fast, however. If it hasn’t reached you yet, fast fibre optic broadband is your friend. It’s available in speeds up to around 150Mbps with many providers – including Sky, BT, TalkTalk, Vodafone, and more.

These speeds are more than sufficient for most households, even for those with a penchant for streaming movies or engaging in online gaming marathons.

If you can’t get Virgin Media and want lots of TV…Sky TV is your best bet. It’s the most comprehensive TV service on the market, with hundreds of channels, lots of boxsets and catch-up apps, and cutting-edge tech.

Your next best TV option would be NOW TV Memberships. Its Entertainment Membership gives you a bundle of live channels, including Sky channels, Comedy Central, Gold, and more. Other memberships give you Sky Sports, Sky Cinema, and hayu.

You can get NOW TV passes as part of a NOW TV and broadband bundle. Or you can add them onto a TV package from another provider, such as BT, TalkTalk, or Vodafone. Or you can simply purchase them separately, and watch from any device that supports the app (which includes laptops, phones, tables, smart TVs, Apple TV, set top boxes…).

There are other TV options on the market, of course. They don’t give you as many extra channels (if any), nor as many clever features as Virgin or Sky TV. But they’re still a cost-effective way to make your telly experience just that bit better – usually with access to streaming apps and catch-up services included.
