Is Virgin Media Broadband any good
Virgin Media Broadband review: Verdict
Virgin Media’s broadband offering is an impressive one. It delivers good customer service and speeds its major rivals can’t match. All of that costs money, though: with standard broadband packages starting at £35 per month, this certainly isn’t a budget ISP.

Is BT or Virgin Broadband better
With BT, you get a BT Sport, while Virgin gives you a better TV box and offers faster internet speeds. The TalkTalk bundle can’t be compared to any of its rivals because it offers much less, but it also works out much cheaper overall.
Is Virgin the fastest broadband
Virgin Media is all about speed. According to Ofcom, Virgin Media offers the top speeds in the UK, and no one’s arguing. Even Virgin’s slowest product is faster than many ‘fast fibre’ deals from other UK providers. Other VIVID broadband deals offer average speeds of 108Mbps, 213Mbps and 350Mbps.
Is Virgin broadband Fibre to the home
If you have Virgin Media broadband, the lines between the exchange and your street cabinet are fibre optic, but between the cabinet and your home is a coaxial cable. That’s how Virgin Media can offer average speeds of 362Mb.

Is Virgin broadband totally unlimited
Virgin Media fair usage
Virgin Media’s unlimited packages are indeed unlimited with no limit to how much you can download. It also no longer manages web traffic – it’s truly unlinited.
Is Virgin Media a good mobile network
Virgin Mobile has strong 4G coverage and some near-unique extras, like data rollover and free WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook Messenger messaging. Its prices aren’t too high either, making it a strong overall choice of mobile network. It’s not good for Pay As You Go users though, as they’re limited to 3G data.
Can I get Virgin broadband
You’re right that Virgin Media isn’t available everywhere, Andrew. If you can get BT services, there’s a good chance you can also get broadband from providers like Sky, TalkTalk, Plusnet, or EE; but it doesn’t mean you can get Virgin Media too.
Does Virgin broadband use BT lines
Virgin Media broadband
Since it has its own fibre network separate from BT’s, it can bring a broadband connection to your home directly – completely eliminating the need for a landline. And we’re pleased to say that Virgin Media has some pretty good deals available.
