#NoCompetition 4G fast mobile is here.

Virgin Media Staff


We're now offering our mobile customers free messaging on WhatsApp and  Facebook Messenger, and the ability to "rollover" unused data as we launch 4G in the UK.

A range of new flexible mobile plans available from today will give Virgin Media customers fast 4G speeds as standard and a range of features to satisfy even the most data-hungry of users.

Virgin Media mobile customers who take one of the new plans will be able to send messages, pictures and videos through WhatsApp and Messenger without eating into their monthly data allowance.

This free messaging will be available on all of our 4G plans with no additional cost or process beyond downloading the applications.

To make sure no leftover data goes to waste we have also introduced ‘Data Rollover’ into our new plans. This means that any mobile data remaining at the end of a month is transferred into the next month’s data allowance. To keep tabs on all of this data, customers will receive a text when data is being rolled over and another text when all the leftover data has been used.

New flexible 4G plans

The new flexible 4G mobile plans start at £6 per month for a 30 day rolling contract with 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 300MB of data, up to £25 per month for a contract with 5000 minutes, unlimited texts and 20GB of data.*

All Virgin Media 4G plans are available as either Freestyle or SIM-only contracts. Freestyle contracts split the plan and handset elements of a contract over a 24 month period to give Virgin Media customers the ability to pay the handset element off early to upgrade to a new phone.

Last month we also introduced a “Trade Up” scheme so that its customers can use the existing value of their phone to upgrade to the latest handsets.

On both Freestyle and SIM-only plans customers now have freedom to move up and down plans each month depending on their data needs.

Connect to 250,000 WiFi hotspots

Alongside mobile connectivity Virgin Media customers can also download the Virgin Media WiFi app and make use of up to 250,000 WiFi hotspots available everywhere from airports and cafes to more than 250 stations on the London Underground. Virgin Media recently acquired Arqiva WiFi to bolster its out-of-home connectivity for people and businesses.
