Information about Virgin Media Broadband
Virgin Media Broadband is a popular student choice, whether bought alone or as part of a TV package. The monthly price is cheap as chips, especially if you split it between you and your housemates.
Another added benefit of a Virgin contract is that there is no need to set up a phone line, meaning you can save more than £15 a month as well as any possible installation costs. With speeds of over 500Mbps on the top packages, Virgin tends to offer faster broadband than other providers and blows most of its competitors out of the water.
Virgin has been known to offer a reduced 1 month contracts to fit in with the student academic year. The 1 month contract can be a real help to most students because many don’t live in their accommodation for the full 12 month tenancy period, so is excellent value for money.
Virgin Media Broadband product examples
It can be tricky to work out which Virgin Media Broadband package you need – you don’t want to pay over the odds for speeds you don’t necessarily need, but it is worth keeping in mind that you might be sharing your connection with housemates and all wanting to stream movies at the same time on different devices.
Virgin Media Broadband options 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 also offer ‘Oomph’ packages, where you can pay extra to have a SIM included with your package, which is connected to your router and will act as a back up 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).
