Virgin Media

How fast? Extremely fast.

Unlike other broadband providers, we've got nothing to hide when it comes to the speeds you actually get with Virgin Broadband.

Below you can see the typical speeds that you actually get with all our broadband packages. We update them every month, so you can be sure that they're as close as possible to what you can expect to get when you sign up to Virgin Broadband.

Where do the speed stats come from?
The data comes from a broadband measurement panel made up of real Virgin Media customers spread out across our network. Powered by SamKnows, the broadband performance monitoring specialists, we run millions of tests a month to understand how our broadband is performing.
Why do you say 'up to' about speeds?
We use the phrase 'up to' because download speeds are affected by things beyond our control. For example, the website you're on, the number of people online, or your computer's specifications. With Virgin Media, you'll get much closer to the broadband speed you pay for.
