One of the largest fixed home phone providers in the UK and Ireland, Virgin Media offers speeds of up to 568Mbps. They offer line, mobile, broadband and digital television services.
Virgin-based services are delivered on a private network which is generally much faster than competitors such as Plusnet or TalkTalk.
They use different tech - called 'DOCSIS® 3 technology' and a unique thicker insulated cable that goes from a different street cabinet into your home. It generally maintains the advertised speeds regardless of how far you are from the cabinet. This is not true of traditional providers.
So you can get more out of your service, and more people in your home can be heavy users. It's great for large or demanding households, and we'll confess that we currently use Virgin to provide services to our office.
Their fastest speeds are five times quicker than BT, TalkTalk, Plusnet or Sky. Here's an example taken from Virgin's site:
We've given them FOUR stars★★★★☆
Not usually the cheapest, but you get what you pay for here. While most of the country is limited to 68Mbps on a perfect line, Virgin can offer services nearly ten times faster to millions of homes across the UK.
We've worked to get the very best prices possible. Take a look below to see if they have a deal for you.
