When Is The Virgin Media Speed Upgrade Coming To My Area?

Virgin Media VIVID

Good news....Virgin Media is boosting its broadband speeds again with download speeds set to rise to a mouth-watering 300 megabytes per second (Mbps) across its next generation optical fibre network.

Who Gets The Virgin Media Speed Boost?

All existing Virgin Media broadband customers on either the 50Mbps, 100Mbps or 200Mbps packages will be offered upgrades to the new VIVID 100Mbps, VIVID 200Mbps and the VIVID 300Mbps services. New customers can also benefit when they switch to Virgin Media.

When Will The Virgin Media Speed Upgrade Start?

It has already started. Work began back in October 2015 and they have very nearly completed the roll out across its network which covers around 13 million UK homes.

When Will The Virgin Media Speed Boost Come To My Area?

The chances are it's already there! Simply enter your postcode at virginmedia.com/speedupgrade to find out when the faster broadband speeds will be available in your area.

If you are willing to sign a new contract with Virgin Media, it is likely that you will be given the opportunity to receive the faster broadband speeds ahead of the roll out schedule.

If you would rather wait, Virgin Media will email you when the faster speeds are available in your area. The email will contain instructions on how to order the upgrade on the My Account section of the Virgin Media website.

Will I Have To Pay Extra For The Faster Broadband Speeds?

We do not know at this stage. The last time Virgin Media rolled out a speed upgrade across its network, there was an increase in the monthly package price, so it is likely.
