Virgin Media is the first company in the UK to deliver a quadruple-play offering of unlimited broadband, revolutionary on demand digital TV, great value landline phone calls and a leading mobile phone service. By carrying all four services together, they can offer you far better value for money compared to you buying them separately, plus there's only one bill. It's up to you though, you can choose one service like Virgin VIVID 100Mb broadband for £32.25 a month, or choose Virgin VIVID 100Mb broadband, weekend phone calls, line rental and Virgin TV for £32 per month.

Put simply, you can take as much or as little as you want from Virgin Media, including all Sky channels and BT Sport channels - and it's entirely up to you how you bundle their services together.

Call Charges For Contacting Virgin Media Broadband Customer And Technical Support

Please note that any calls you make to Virgin Broadband customer and technical support may cost up to 4.5p per minute from a BT landline. Calls from mobiles or other network providers may cost more. Calls from a Virgin Media phone line are free.

Virgin Media Broadband Review - Our Final Comment And Rating
Final Rating - 9 out of 10
It's great to see Richard Branson cement Virgin's brand and its ethos into the broadband sector. In a relatively short period of time the ex ntl Telewest firm, often plagued by its poor customer service and cable footprint, has been reignited by the Virgin way of thinking. There's been significant investment and training in customer service, whilst its range of broadband, phone and TV packages have been simplified to offer great value. Whether you're in the market for either a stand alone super fast fibre optic broadband package or a TV, phone and broadband bundle, Virgin Media have it covered and at low prices too.

Expect more low priced bundles and a focus on fast fibre optic broadband as Branson battle with Sky hots up.....note, the new VIVID 300Mb ultra-fast broadband service is the ultimate for downloading, streaming video & online gaming! It's one of the fastest fibre optic broadband services in the UK and costs from just £47 a month - and that INCLUDES Virgin Media phone line rental.

New customers ordering a Virgin Media broadband and phone package online at the virginmedia.com website can get 1 years welcome DISCOUNT. Prices start from just £32 a month including phone line rental.
