Hurry for up to £90 off our Big Bundles

We're still the fastest!

For the sixth year running, industry watchdog Ofcom has proved that Virgin Broadband is officially the fastest broadband widely available in the UK#.

In Ofcom's latest report, the UK average broadband speed has increased from 14.7Mb to 17.8Mb, which is largely because we doubled our speeds for over 4 million customers last year and now we've started to Supercharge our speeds yet again!
