Virgin Fibre - 300Mbps Ultrafast Speeds

Sofa Bear

Introducing 300Mbps ultrafast broadband from Virgin Fibre.

Today we became the first widely-available UK broadband provider to offer ultrafast speeds of 100Mbps and above as standard as we revamp our bundles and launch the Virgin Fibre brand.

As the need for fast, reliable broadband increases a speed of 300Mbps is four times faster than our main competitors’ top speeds and gives households more bandwidth to stream, game, chat and work all at the same time on multiple connected devices.

Alongside new speeds, the new Virgin TV V6 box will now be included in the Mix, Fun and Full House bundles as standard, giving new customers’ access to Virgin TV’s smallest, smartest, fastest box, as well as a wide variety of entertainment. Existing customers can also take advantage of the Virgin TV V6 box, with upgrade pricing varying depending on the package taken.

Tom Mockridge, CEO of Virgin Media, said

By beefing up our bundles we’re leaving our competitors in the rear view mirror, starting where they finish. Eye-watering speeds, a better box and top-notch TV is a winning combination.
More and more switchers tell us they are joining Virgin Media for our faster speeds and we understand why - whether it’s 4K Netflix, box sets in multiple rooms or online gaming, the best entertainment requires the best broadband and we’re making sure our customers are covered with these bundles at incredible value.

The best TV with the best connectivity

The new Virgin TV V6 box, which was launched at the end of last year is our smallest, smartest and fastest box yet and will be included as the primary TV box to all new customers on a Mix bundle and above.

The Virgin TV V6 box allows people to record six shows while watching a seventh, supports 4K Ultra-High Definition and comes with 1TB of storage allowing 500 hours of SD recordings or 100 hours of HD recordings.

Recordings can also be watched and set on any other TiVo-powered boxes around the home which means existing Virgin TV customers can keep recordings and transfer settings while updating their home entertainment. Selected recordings, a range of box sets - including numerous Virgin TV exclusives - and up to 110 live TV channels, including BT Sport, can also be watched over WiFi with the Virgin TV Anywhere app.
