About Virgin Media
Virgin Media is one of the UK's largest broadband providers. It is different from the other major UK broadband providers because it owns and operates its cable network, whereas other broadband providers rely on the Openreach network. This network allows Virgin Media to offer incredible speeds to its customers.
Virgin Media is a premium broadband provider, so while you might pay more than its competitors, you can expect excellent service. Although Virgin Media is mainly known for its superfast broadband, they also offer Phone, TV and Mobile services. You can even bundle a combination of these services to save some money.
We think Virgin Media is ideal for busy families looking for fast and reliable internet service or families looking to save money by bundling their services.

Virgin Media Broadband Only Deals
Virgin Media are one of the few broadband providers that offer broadband-only deals. Unlike other broadband providers who rely on the Openreach network, Virgin Media's network doesn't require an active phone line for you to have working internet.
However, with the addition of FTTP (fibre-to-the-premises) by Openreach, other major broadband providers are starting to offer Full Fibre broadband services which don't require an active phone line. FTTP coverage across the UK is low. However, it is rapidly expanding.
Virgin Media TV Deals
If you choose to go with Virgin Media TV, you'll receive their 4K HDR Ready TV Box. Their TV box combines channels, apps and on-demand content for you to enjoy under one roof. If you're on the go, you can still enjoy your content through the Virgin TV app available on Android and iOS.
Watch the biggest releases first, get early access to premium rentals and catch must-see titles available to buy or rent through the Virgin Media store. New titles are added each week, so there will always be something to watch.
