Virgin Media student discount
About Virgin Media
Virgin Media Broadband is a popular student choice, whether just broadband or as part of a TV package.
With speeds of over 500Mbps on the top packages, Virgin Media tend to offer faster broadband speeds than other providers. There is no need to pay for a phone line with Virgin Media broadband.
Virgin Media offer students a 30-day rolling broadband contract to help fit the student academic year.
This rare short broadband contract can be a real help to students who don't live at university for a full 12 month tenancy period.
Virgin Media Broadband packages
It can be tricky to work out which Virgin Media Broadband package you need.
You don’t want to pay for speeds you don’t necessarily need, but remember you'll likely be sharing your broadband connection with housemates all wanting to stream movies at the same time.
Virgin Media Broadband packages include:
- M100 Fibre Broadband - perfect for streaming
- M200 Fibre Broadband - perfect for HD streaming
- M350 Fibre Broadband - ideal for UHD streaming
- M500 Fibre Broadband - the best speeds for gaming
Virgin Media also offer ‘Oomph’ packages, where you can pay extra to have a SIM included with your package. This is connected to your router and will act as a backup if your internet connection ever goes down.
If you need a constant connection for work or don’t want to risk missing any deadlines due to lack of service, it might be worth taking a look at this (though you can use your mobile phone’s connection as a hotspot with most smartphones now).
