According to Ofcom's 2012 report, Virgin Media has the fastest average broadband download speeds widely available to customers. This is due to the extensive network of fibre optic cables which is the fastest and most reliable way to get a broadband connection into your home.
Making sure you choose the right broadband for your own needs can be complicated, as some advertising makes services deliberately confusing and hard to compare with other services.
At Virgin Media the choice of services is laid out in a simple manner that is easy to understand, with flexible packages that let you pick and choose the different things you need, so you only pay for what you want. For full details visit their website.
The faster your broadband speed the more you'll be able to do online, whether that means making the most of streaming media or connecting to as many people as you like at the same time.
30Mb broadband comes as standard, but if you work from home or like to take part in online gaming, stream movies or go shopping, then speeds of up to 100Mb will make sure you have all the capacity you need.
A higher connection speed can obviously send more data back and forth at the same time - it's a bit like the way more water can flow down a larger pipe than a thinner one. By understanding the right speeds for your personal set-up you can make the best choice and ensure you only pay for what you need.
At the 2013 uSwitch Broadband Awards, Virgin Media won four awards, including Best Broadband Provider, Fastest Home Broadband, Best WiFi Service and Best Broadband Innovation, which means Virgin Broadband is rated the UK's No 1 service provider.
In any of the packages you choose there are plenty of added extras to make sure that everything goes smoothly. As a Virgin Broadband customer you get free servicing and repairs on everything to do with your broadband and the exclusive Super Hub that is provided to run your home network
There's also the comfort of knowing there is 24 hour expert IT support only a phone call away.
Fastest wireless set-up
The Virgin Media Super Hub is provided in all packages and is designed to be the centre of your secure superfast wireless home network. It is easy to set up and maintain and seamlessly and securely connects all your devices to your wifi network and to the internet beyond.
Virgin Media offers unlimited downloads which means that you can download and browse as much as you like in the knowledge that you won't incur hidden fees and charges.
Although Virgin Media's reputation has been built on their innovative use of fibre optic cabling to enable the very fastest broadband speeds, if your area isn't yet cabled this is not a problem as you can access fast broadband via your phone line instead. You don't need a BT line and you can choose from an extensive range of packages.
