Your Virgin Media Mobile changes

Your mobile prices will be changing from 1st July 2019

Changes to your Virgin Mobile plan price

In line with Retail Price Index (RPI) inflation, and as outlined in your contract, the price of your monthly airtime plan will be going up by 2.4% from 1st July 2019. The new price will appear on your first bill on or after that date.

This price change will only affect the amount you pay for your airtime plan (data, minutes and texts). So, if your handset is on a separate plan, your handset repayments will stay the same, and you’ll still get the allowances you have now.

Calculate your new monthly airtime plan price

The new monthly price you’ll pay from 1st July 2019 will depend on the airtime plan you’re on. The RPI increase doesn’t affect the cost of calls, texts or data outside of your monthly allowance. Use our calculator to see what your new monthly price will be.

If your monthly bill is made up of two separate parts – your airtime plan and the cost of your handset – only your airtime plan will be affected, so just put that figure into the calculator.

Spending Caps: In line with EU Legislation, spending caps are now available to all pay monthly customers who have joined or re-contracted with Virgin Media on or after 24 September 2018. Spending caps can be added when you join/re-contract with Virgin Media and will take effect immediately or from your next bill cycle if implemented at a later stage. Increasing or removing your cap will take effect immediately, but any reduction in spending cap will take effect from your next bill cycle. Any changes will be confirmed via text. Spending caps will not override the credit limit. Upon reaching 80% of your spending cap, you will receive a notification by SMS. Once the spending cap has reached 100%, you will receive a further SMS notification and no further out-of-bundle charges can be applied to your account (in-bundle services and access to emergency numbers will remain unaffected). Usage-related charges (including but not limited to calls or texts to premium or international numbers or roaming outside of the EU) count towards the cap; one-time charges (including but not limited to late payment fees and paper bill charges) do not count towards the cap.
