Virgin Mobile: Extra benefits for Virgin Media home customers

We look at the extra benefits and discounts that you get if you are a Virgin Media broadband or cable TV customer that joins Virgin Mobile too. SIM Sherpa is your trusty guide. Last updated: 3rd December 2020.

Perks for Virgin broadband customers

Virgin Media customers get discounts on mobile

Add up to 4x SIMs with a discountHow it works

(opens in new window)

A while back, Virgin offered their broadband and TV customers a £5 or £10 discount off the cost of their mobile plan. But they ended up scrapping it, so you can no longer get a discount on your first mobile deal with them.

However, Virgin Media broadband and TV customers can now get an exclusive discount on extra mobile plans. You also need to have a pay monthly phone or SIM contract with Virgin Mobile. Non-Virgin Media customers can’t get this offer.

You can add up to 4x extra SIMs to your account for other people and you'll get a £2 monthly discount on each (choose from Virgin Mobile's regular 12-month SIM only deal range here). That's a potential combined saving of £96 a year.

As well as saving you some money, this benefit also allows you to manage multiple SIMs in one account. You’ll receive one singular bill each month, which is more convenient than having multiple deals with different networks.

With an estimated 5.9 million cable TV and broadband customers, Virgin Media used to appeal to their home services customers with more perks on their mobile deals than today.

If you were on pay monthly, you’d get unlimited minutes to other Virgin Mobile numbers, even though most of their plans came with a capped number of minutes to other networks.

They had something similar on pay as you go too - Virgin don’t offer pay as you go at all now, so that’s also been scrapped. So what’s left?

You do technically get access to an exclusive unlimited data tariff on SIM only, which we talk about below. But otherwise, there’s nothing extra special in it for you to join Virgin Mobile as a Media customer.

Unlimited data is widely available with all these UK mobile networks now offering it. And on that list, you’ll see that Virgin Mobile are one of only two providers using EE's superfast 4G network.

If you're a Virgin Media broadband or TV customer (or anyone at your address is), you can get unlimited everything: minutes, texts and data on SIM only plans:

The price is quite reasonable for one on the EE network, so even if it's not the cheapest overall deal, we still think it is a decent benefit.

If you aren’t a Virgin Media cable customer, you can’t get unlimited data on SIM only plans, but you can now get it by signing up for a pay monthly phone contract.

There aren't any exclusive broadband customer discounts on phone contracts nowadays but Virgin are now among some of the cheapest places to get a smartphone deal (compare phone contracts here).

A while ago, it used to be only Virgin Media home customers that could get access to unlimited data plans, but this is now open to everyone that takes out a pay monthly contract.

Other networks doing proper unlimited tariffs with phones are usually on more expensive networks like EE, Three and Vodafone.

You can use our price comparison tool to check if Virgin Mobile work out cheapest for the phone model that you’re after.
