Is Virgin Media faster than BT
BT broadband vs Virgin Media broadband. BT and Virgin are two heavyweights of the broadband world. Virgin is renowned for its insanely fast speeds, but BT is more widely available and also offers faster speeds than its competitors.
Why is Virgin Media faster than BT
Virgin is faster than BT because it uses a coaxial cable to connect up individual houses, which as a technology, is better at delivering fast speeds than the copper phone lines BT still uses to connect houses to it’s fibre broadband.
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 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.
Does Virgin Media use BT lines
Virgin Media broadband
Virgin Media (www.virginmedia.com) is the only major provider in the UK able to offer broadband that doesn’t need a phone line. 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.
Why is Virgin Media so much faster
Virgin uses its own cabling network, rather than the Openreach network, so it can offer speeds faster than most other providers. On average, Virgin customers receive speeds very close to those advertised, and in many cases, faster than those advertised.
What download speed should I get from Virgin Media
Ofcom’s research shows average download speeds of 87.7Mbps and 95.2Mbps, not quite reaching 100Mbps. The average upload speed recorded is 6Mbps according to Ofcom, which is also what Virgin states customers on VIVID 100 can expect.
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.
What is a good internet speed
4-6 mbps: Will provide a good Web surfing experience. Often fast enough to stream a 720p high-definition video, and it’s possible to download some videos within about 20 minutes at this speed. But 4 mbps can still be sluggish. 6-10 mbps: Usually an excellent Web surfing experience.
