Virgin Media has played a major role in changing the way the UK browses the web, implementing its huge broadband network whilst rivals continued to focus on ADSL packages. No matter what broadband package you choose with Virgin Media, it will always be superfast, with the lowest package offering up to 54Mb on average.
Virgin Media customers can also enjoy the great benefits of TiVo®, a new way to watch TV at home, boasting a wealth of smart features, HD compatibility and apps including YouTube and Facebook.
Virgin Media is making the most of its significant head start in the world of superfastbroadband. No home broadband provider can offer the same top package speeds as Virgin Media, making it unique and a huge draw for those that will only settle for the fastest available.
Virgin Media can currently offer up to 362Mb on average broadband, dwarfing rivals by some margin, and the way the network is built allows the speeds to continue going up as Virgin Media makes further technological advances.
Equally, Virgin Media is not solely for people that want the best broadband around; you can also get more modestly-priced packages which still offer superfast broadband, easily quick enough for seamless streaming and fluid web browsing.
Virgin Media offers customers the TiVo® service and set-top box with its digital TV packages, and it’s the only UK provider to do so. The advantage of TiVo® is that it offers innovative features to help you make the most out of your viewing experience.
It is HD-ready, so as long as you have an HD TV you can watch in glorious high definition, and every TV package includes a number of HD channels without extra charge. TiVo® will give you recommendations based on the programmes you like and record, and you can store up to 500 hours of standard definition content with the popular 1TB box, or 250 hours with the 500GB alternative.
It is web-connected through your broadband, so you can access apps such as YouTube and Facebook, and you use it to search through the library of Catch-Up TV and On Demand shows and movies. TiVo® boasts the essential pause and rewind features, and users can record up to 3 programmes, whilst watching one recorded previously.
Virgin Media Bundles offer the complete home package, with entertainment TV, broadband and inclusive home calls. Each package offers something different, giving customers great choice.
