What is fibre broadband?

Fibre broadband, also known as fibre-optic broadband, which takes its name from the type of cable used to deliver the internet signal. In the past, the majority of connections in the UK were delivered on copper telephone lines or mobile networks to hook up homes to their providers.

However, copper wires have been slowly replaced by connections that use fibre-optic cables. These cables are made of glass or plastic, which allows more information to be sent along them; allowing faster broadband speeds than traditional ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line).

How does Fibre broadband work?

Instead of being transported into your home via copper wires and copper tubes, like standard broadband connections, fibre networks are delivered using superfast fibre optic cables making the transfer of data much more efficient.

While standard broadband packages usually deliver average speeds in the region of 10-11Mbps, fibre optic connections offer average speeds that are generally faster. Virgin Media’s gigabit broadband service can even reach speeds in excess of 1000Mbps, or 1Gbps. In fact, when you compare standard broadband vs fibre optic broadband, the differences can be vast.

How does fibre optic broadband get to my house?


We’ll add cable wall points in the room you want your Broadband and TV to be installed. For Virgin Phone, we'll either install a standard phone socket to connect to, or in some areas you may connect your home phone directly to our broadband Hub.

For Virgin Broadband, we'll then run a cable from the wall point to your new Hub. We’ll make sure your Hub is in the best location so your wireless signal isn’t affected by other electrical equipment, fish tanks or cordless phones.

Types of fibre broadband

While there are multiple different options for speeds with broadband, there are only two types of superfast fibre broadband: fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) and fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP). Most fibre connections in the UK are fibre-to-the-cabinet services, and the speed available ranges widely. This means that a fibre cable only runs as far as the street cabinet, with a different connection running from the cabinet to individual properties. A fibre-to-the-premises service only uses fibre optic cables to deliver broadband.

Virgin Media’s broadband service uses the latest cable technology that connects the customer’s home to the cabinet over a coax cable, these cables are capable of delivering much faster speeds than a standard copper wire network.

From the cabinet and onwards, Virgin Media then passes the traffic across its own fibre optic network where it travels at the speed of light, similar to other fibre networks.

What's included with Virgin Media fibre broadband service?

What you get with your Virgin Media fibre broadband service will depend on the package that you have chosen with us. You can decide to go for our broadband and phone deals, or our all-in-one package which includes fibre broadband, TV and landline as standard.

If you don’t want your landline to be included in the deal, you can go for a broadband and TV package. Our TV packages comes with our Virgin Media TV 360 box, bringing together your favourite channels, apps and On Demand content so you can watch the programmes, series and box sets you love all from one place.

Do I need fibre optic broadband?

We understand the need for speed across broadband services at home – especially where home can mean the office and school room. We’re known for delivering fast speeds you can rely on and use to get your various devices connected.

Whether or not you need fibre optic broadband is completely dependent upon how much your household is planning to use the broadband, and how demanding the usage will be. Taking the needs and demands of your entire household into consideration is essential when deciding if fibre optic broadband is for you.

What's the difference between fibre broadband and copper broadband?

Standard broadband is called ADSL, which refers to internet services delivered on copper wires. The main difference you get from fibre broadband is speed; fibre optic cables generally offer a faster internet connection, to power all your smart devices and online life.

The majority of ADSL broadband connections offer average download speeds of roughly 10Mbps – though due to the nature of the copper-wire based infrastructure delivering it, service may vary.

Delivery speeds will often depend on the particular lines you’re connected on, distance to broadband exchange and how far you are from your street cabinet. Also, how many people in your neighbourhood are trying to access the internet all at once.

When you’re looking at fibre broadband services, most start at around 36Mbps, which is around three times faster than the ADSL average. The delivery technology is more robust and should offer a more consistent service.

Fibre broadband can achieve faster speeds, with some packages reaching over 1Gbps, which is the equivalent to 1000Mbps.

What is full fibre?

Full fibre, also called ‘FTTP’, is fibre broadband that is cabled straight to the household using no copper-based telephone lines.

What is Gig1 Fibre broadband?

Virgin Media’s gigabit broadband service, Gig1, is fast, future-ready and offers 1Gbps download speeds to your wireless router. It’s our fastest available broadband speed and has an average download speed of 1130Mbps.

Why would I need ultrafast broadband?

As technology advance and we bring in more internet-connected devices into our home we need faster broadband speeds to keep them all connected and running smoothly. From watching TV and films in 4K, downloading large videogames and supporting a home network of smart devices, an ultrafast connection is becoming more important.

What's the difference between superfast, ultrafast and gigabit broadband?

The reason why these types of broadband are labelled differently is down to the speed which they offer. These speeds are defined by us as follows.

Superfast

We define anything having a download speed of up to 100Mbps as Superfast.

Ultrafast

Broadband with download speeds of more than 100Mbps we call Ultrafast. So this includes our M100 package all the way up to our M600 package.

Gigabit

Gigabit broadband is a broadband connection that has the capability to deliver speeds of 1000Mbps or more. Our gigabit broadband package is called Gig1, and is currently the fastest speed we offer, with an average download speed of 1130Mbps.

Can I get fibre broadband only deals?

Yes, with Virgin Media you can get fibre broadband only deals if that is what you want. In addition to this you can get fibre deals which include TV and landline packages if you wish to upgrade.

What are ideal broadband speeds to have at home?

However you are set up at home, you’re almost certain to need strong and reliable broadband to serve your devices and keep you chatting, working and viewing. Here are some ideas around internet speeds with different set-ups. Just so you know, these speeds and usages are approximate, so you might find your needs differ.

When we say Mbps, that means megabits per second. This is the unit broadband speed is measured in, and lets you know how many bits of information are being downloaded or uploaded every second.

0-30Mbps (1-2 people per household)

Should be suitable for those that mainly use the internet for to browse websites occasionally or some light social media updates. Mostly serviced by ADSL broadband, which on average offers download speeds of around 10Mbps.

30-60Mbps (3+ users per household)

These speeds would suit a few people in the house using the
internet at the same time and could manage streaming videos.
Infrequent binge-watchers and smaller houses could manage
with broadband offered at this speed. Fibre broadband might be preferable.

100-200Mpbs (serious streamers at home)

If the people in your house are always streaming TV shows
on the go, or are heavy gaming fans, this is the type of internet
speed you should be looking to get from your broadband
provider. Faster fibre broadband deals can often be more
expensive but may prove worth it for heavier users. Equally, if
your situation changes, you’ll want to have the broadband speed to keep up.

200Mbps (downloading large files)

This is an ideal ultrafast broadband speed for gamers who
download games, updates and patches, and who also have
other people using the internet at the same time. It’s great for
people who also work from home.

If you need to either upload or download large files, the extra
broadband power will be a massive helping hand. Also, if
homeworkers commonly have to make video conference calls,
sometimes simultaneously, then ultrafast, 200Mbps broadband connections are a great solution.

350Mbps to Gigabit broadband

With so many digital and online devices around at the moment,
some of us need even more broadband speed. It is not
uncommon for a few members of a household to have their
own smart speakers in their bedrooms, and perhaps one in the
kitchen or a living room area – some of these devices even
stream video for calling purpose or watching YouTube explainer videos.

What can you do with higher, ultrafast broadband speeds? If
you had 350Mbps download speed, it would roughly allow you
to stream ultra-HD video on 12 devices at the same time, or you
could download a HD quality movie in around 2 minutes! So if
you are using a broadband internet connection with download speeds of 350Mbps, you can stream in HD-quality on around 12 devices at a time.

How affordable is fibre optic broadband?

This depends on your needs and what you can budget for. Fibre broadband is great, but the faster packages are only good value if you need a broadband speed that fast. The best thing to do is work out roughly how fast a broadband speed your household needs and find a package to match it.

Always keep an eye out for introductory offers and promotions, as these can reduce how much you pay for a period of time at the start of your contract.

Can I get fibre broadband in my area?

As of 2021, the majority of homes in the UK can get fibre broadband. This is according to the regulator Ofcom. Ofcom states that superfast broadband is available to 98% of UK homes.

At Virgin Media, we are keen to help as many homes and businesses we can by providing fibre broadband in their areas. You can use our postcode checker to find out if you can get fibre broadband where you live.

When will fibre come to my area?

We’re always working on and updating our plans. If you’ve registered for email updates, we’ll be able to drop you a line to confirm when we’ll be coming to your area with our fibre broadband and cable TV services.

How do I switch to Virgin Media Fibre broadband?

It’s a competitive world and understandably you might be looking to switch broadband provider. Here’re some things to look out for.

How do I know if I’m out of contract?

Log in to your existing provider account or give customer services a call. You might also find the length of your current contract in your latest or quarterly bills.

Will I get notified when my contract is up?

This depends on your broadband provider. It’s common that you’ll receive a notification that your contract is coming to an end, but if you’re unsure as to when this is, or whether it has already ended, you should get in touch with them to find out.

What is included in my contract?

In short, everything you need to know about our service is included in your contract, including the internet speeds you can expect as a ‘service level agreement’. We will also explain how your service will be delivered and give you information on the installation options we offer and other extra we provide.

Once you have established all the details on whether you can switch to Virgin Media broadband, the process couldn’t be simpler. Just look for the package which suits you best – whether that be a broadband only or one with TV and landline included – then purchase your product.

Do I need an engineer to install fibre?

There are two ways you can get fibre installed in your home. If you haven’t had Virgin Media previously, then you will need to get one of our engineers out to help with the installation process. Our engineers will arrive on the agreed date and at the agreed time to show you how to use your new services. They will check where you'd like the cables to run, both inside and outside your home, and look for alternative routes if the obvious route appears problematic.

The other way to install our fibre broadband in your home is with our QuickStart self-install pack. When this arrives, you should be able to get to work straight away provided everything at home, such as the location and condition of your wall socket, meets our requirements.
