Switching Broadband Things to Know!

Can you switch broadband mid-contract?


Yes but you may need to pay some charges. Some providers charge an exit fee and enforce a minimum term during which this applies, which can make switching broadband while on contract a more expensive affair and potentially offset any cost savings.


Are there any hidden costs to switching?


Your provider will be upfront about what costs you need to pay before you sign up to your new package. This may include a charge for installation or connection - anything up to about and for the delivery of your router.


What broadband speed can I get?


At Virgin Media we have a range of superfast broadband speeds for you to choose from. Whether you’re working from home or have a house full of gamers, we have your need for speed covered - from 250Mb to 1Gig.


How to know which speed I need?


Knowing what speed you need can be daunting but from 250Mb to 1Gig, we are Offically Irelands Fastest Broadband provider.
