Find the right student broadband for your accommodation

Like most uni halls or private student accommodation, you’ll probably have a short-term tenancy agreement running from September to July. Our 30 day rolling student broadband could be ideal if you don’t intend to stay beyond July.

Another key factor to consider when shopping for your student broadband should be the download speed, especially if you’re sharing the WiFi with your housemates. At Virgin Media, our fastest widely available average broadband speeds are 9x quicker than Sky and BT.
