What is Virgin Media M500?

Virgin Media M500 Fibre Broadband is a package designed for large households and tech-savvy users; essentially anyone who spends a lot of time uploading and downloading large files or streaming in HD/4K. Virgin M500 has an average download speed of 516 Mbps and an upload speed of 52 Mbps, which is great for Ultra HD streaming, intense online gaming sessions, and the type of home cinema experience that would make friends and family envious.

With a starting price of £42.00 per month, the M500 package comes with an attractive introductory offer of 3 months free (that’s similar to BT’s Full Fibre 500 deal if you’re interested in comparing the two). Following the introductory period, the price remains £42.00 per month for the subsequent 15 months of the 18-month contract. After the contract period, the monthly cost is expected to increase to £67. This package includes the state-of-the-art Virgin Media WiFi Hub, featuring advanced intelligent WiFi technology. Subscribers also benefit from Priority access, which offers a range of perks and exclusive experiences. As an added benefit, the package comes with no setup fee.
