Virgin Media UK Discounts Ultrafast Broadband and Phone Bundles

Thursday, February 1st, 2018 (9:27 am) - Score 4,515

Cable operator Virgin Media has today further reduced the price of their discount offer on bundles of phone and ultrafast broadband, which for example means that monthly prices will start at £29 per month for the 50Mbps package rather than £32 (applies for the first 12 months of service).

The offer for new customers is subject to a 12 month contract (a 30 day contract option does exist, without the discounts) and you can expect to receive a Hub 3.0 (SuperHub) wireless router, unlimited usage, inclusive weekend calls to UK landlines / Virgin Mobile numbers (plus inclusive weekend minutes to 0870 numbers), access to Virgin’s UK WiFi hotspots, internet security / parental controls and free email.

On top of that a £20 one-off activation applies, although some people may be charged £40 for a standard installation.

VIVID 50Mbps + Phone
Price: £32 £29 per month for 12 months (£40 thereafter)

VIVID 100Mbps + Phone
Price: £37 £34 per month for 12 months (£45 thereafter)

VIVID 200Mbps + Phone
Price: £42 £39 per month for 12 months (£50 thereafter)

VIVID 300Mbps + Phone
Price: £47 £44 per month for 12 months (£55 thereafter)

One downside of today’s update is that Virgin Media have removed the discounts on their standalone cable broadband packages, which have now reverted to their normal monthly pricing.

    The same company that can take £1,400 a year off me but can’t repair a. Landline I’ve been paying for for the last 53 days that has a fault. It’s all fine till you have a problem. Con men.

    1. Simon says:

      If you bothered to put all this energy into research you would know that after 3 days of the landline being OOS after reported you can claim compensation!

    2. Matt says:

      Waited longer with BT and they have more of an obligation to supply one….

      You’ll find virgin are waiting for approval from council or a work team to do some serious work.

  2. David Valder says:

    This lot want you signed up cos they only want a steady income, if you get a problem, too bad!

    1. Matt says:

      And how exactly do you think these companies that supply connections to millions stay able to do it….

      Please think before you rant…

    2. Oleg says:

      As opposed to businesses that do not want a steady income, or customers and want to go bankrupt. Good luck finding one of those. If it gets you offline quicker then im all for it.

  3. Ray Woodward says:

    It would appear (to my cynical nature) that they are trying anything to stir up customers.

    Are things really *that* bad at Virgin ..?

    They’ll be giving it away with cereal before long at this rate …

    1. They’re doubtless under pressure to compete with the upgraded up-to-52Mbps which is now the entry-level FTTC offering at BT et. al.

      (The reality is many don’t get 52Mbps with FTTC, especially since if you’re getting TV it will knock 6Mbps off the gross available bandwidth – whereas for Virgin you get an extra cable connection for the TV, and I believe its own allocation for on-demand. However, if you’re considering Virgin’s 50Mbps package you might well be OK with 30-40Mbps from the competition.)

    2. Oleg says:

      “They’ll be giving it away with cereal before long at this rate …”

      Nah you have to join BT to get your Sainsbury Nectar reward card to get your free Cereal.

  4. John says:

    Are they ever going to offer higher upload speeds on their FTTP connections? 20Mbps is the same as FTTC so I have no incentive to switch.

    1. Matt says:

      Yep certainly sucks having to upgrade to VIVID350 just to get fast upload and not get hit with traffic management…

      I miss being in an FTTC area, I have choice of Virgin or 2-3mbps ADSL…

      I’ll move house eventually.

    2. Oleg says:

      “Yep certainly sucks having to upgrade to VIVID350 just to get fast upload and not get hit with traffic management”

      I think you will find all “Business” packages have NO upload management on them, not just VIVID 350.

      Likewise the residential VIVID 200 and VIVID 300 have no upload management.
      https://help.virginmedia.com/system/templates/selfservice/vm/help/customer/locale/en-GB/portal/200300000001000/article/HELP-2320/Virgin-Media-broadband-traffic-management-policy

      “If you’re on VIVID 200 Gamer or VIVID 300 then you won’t be traffic managed on your download or upload activity.”

      Lets not let the reality get in the way of your rubbish though.

    3. John says:

      Traffic managed or not the speed is still no better than BT, so despite FTTP being a superiour technology to FTTC VM have no reason for me to switch.

    4. Oleg says:

      Really BT have a 350Mb FTTC service do they?

    5. Mike says:

      The only services from BT (excluding leased lines) that can do 350Mb or greater are FTTP which less than 1 Million can currently have and G.Fast which will vary in speed like every xDSL service and even less than 1 Million CURRENTLY can have. VM on the other hand is available to neigh on 50% of the country, so how that equates to being “no better” for speed and the supply of it i guess only he knows. Quantum-parabolic maths perhaps?
