What is M500 Fibre Broadband?

M500 is our way of saying 500Mbps (megabits per second). It’s ultrafast, and with Virgin Media our M500 broadband package boasts average download speeds of 516Mbps and average upload speeds of 52Mbps – faster than the UK’s average home broadband service (63Mbps).

Keep everyone online

With M500 Fibre Broadband, we can keep up with even the busiest of homes. It doesn’t matter if you’re taking video meetings in one room, downloading games in the other with others streaming videos elsewhere – we’ve got you covered. An average download speed of 516Mbps will keep everyone logged on, connected and smiling.

More drama, even in 4k

With a broadband speed this fast, you shouldn't have to worry about your TV streams dropping out, even in UHD 4K. All you have to do is decide what to binge next.
