What is the best broadband in my area?

Choosing the right broadband deal will largely depend on what your household needs. You should consider your budget, household size and your daily internet usage. You’ll also need to assess what coverage is available in your area.

The fastest or least expensive connections may be slightly too much or too little for you, so consider the full range of what you need when you make your choice.

There are several types of broadband connection – each comes with varying levels of speed and availability:

Cable broadband


Virgin Media’s fibre broadband is sometimes called cable broadband. It uses the same fibre network to connect the exchange to the street cabinet, and then a coax cable to complete the journey between the cabinet and individual properties.

But by 2028, we aim to upgrade our cable network to full Fibre To The Premises (FTTP) broadband, using cutting-edge full-fibre technology, capable of 10 Gbps upload and download speeds – and beyond.

Fibre To The Cabinet broadband (FTTC)


Fibre To The Cabinet networks use fibre-optic cables from the exchange to the local cabinet, then a copper wire connection to your home. How far you live from the cabinet can impact your speed, but fibre broadband can deliver 100 Mbps or more, which is generally faster than ADSL.

Fibre To The Premises broadband (FTTP)


Fibre To The Premises connections offer fibre optic cables the whole way from the broadband exchange to your home. These broadband packages offer some of the fastest broadband speeds out there.

ADSL


Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) broadband uses copper phone wires and is several times slower than average fibre speeds. But it uses a different frequency to your landline, so you can make calls and use the internet at the same time, which you couldn’t have done on an old dial-up connection.

Can I get fibre broadband in my area?

Our postcode checker will let you know if our fibre broadband is available in your area. Hundreds of towns and cities are already online with us, and even more are due to be connected soon, in 2022. To stay tuned on our progress in your area, feel free to register for updates.

Why does broadband availability differ in some areas?

Cabling isn’t the same throughout the country. The speed and type of broadband connection you have can be affected by where you live, your property type and what type of fibre optic broadband is installed.

Providers are upgrading local infrastructure as fast as they can. To find out when your neighbourhood’s being connected, you can register for useful progress updates from Virgin Media.

As mentioned, we’re continuing to roll out fibre broadband across the country. These speeds can be well suited to gaming as well as music and TV streaming.

It’s also worth noting that our fastest Gig1 speed is now available everywhere you can get our fibre broadband.

If you can’t get fibre broadband in your area, however, mobile broadband is also an option. This doesn’t rely on fixed-line cables to deliver an internet connection. Virgin Media offer these in the form of 30-day rolling plans or 12-month contracts.

Can I get broadband packages and bundles in my area?

This depends on where you live. Our broadband postcode checker will show you all your options for broadband only deals as well as broadband packages with landline calls and TV channels.
