Virgin Media deals: Broadband prices SLASHED for Boxing Day

Virgin Media's M350 and M500 packages are heavily discounted in this Boxing Day broadband deal

Not content with winning Black Friday and Cyber Monday with its broadband deals, Virgin Media has slashed the price of two of its most popular broadband-only packages in its Boxing Day sales.

The Boxing Day broadband deals in question are on Virgin Media’s M350 and M500 packages. The former promises average download speeds of 362Mbits/sec and upload speeds of 36Mbits/sec, while the latter is even faster, with average download speeds stated at 516Mbits/sec and upload speeds of 36Mbits/sec.

The M350 broadband package typically costs £56/mth but is currently available for less than half its usual price. You’ll pay £27/mth over the course of the 18-month contract, saving yourself £522 in the process. The same £522 saving is available on the M500 package, which has had its price cut from £62/mth to £33/mth.

After the initial 18-month contract concludes, the tariff will rise to the standard £56/mth for the M350 package and £62/mth for the M500 option. It’s worth noting that these prices may change, although if our experience is anything to go by, you’ll be able to negotiate a new discounted rate before your current deal expires.

If you’re thinking about taking advantage of the offer, you’ll need to be in an area Virgin Media supplies broadband to. Its coverage is pretty widespread at this point, but it’s worth checking if it’s available where you live here. There’s a £9.99 setup fee, too,  which is a discount on Virgin Media’s usual £35 fee.

We rate Virgin Media as the best broadband provider for speed and were pretty positive about certain aspects of its service in our Virgin Media broadband review earlier this year. However, we weren’t hugely impressed by the value for money it offered, nor the customer service it provides. While these Black Friday broadband deals can’t transform the company’s customer service department, they do offer the kind of download speeds that are perfect for households using multiple devices for work, streaming and gaming at a reasonable price.
