Virgin Mobile: the benefits for Virgin Media broadband & TV customers

If you have Virgin Media broadband or cable TV, we look at what extra benefits and discounts you get if you join Virgin Mobile too. SIM Sherpa is your trusty guide. Last updated: September 5th 2019.

Benefits for Virgin broadband customers

Virgin Media customers now get some discounts on mobile

Add up to 4x SIMs with a discountHow it works

Virgin used to offer their broadband/TV customers a £5 or £10 discount off the cost of their mobile plan. But this was scrapped a while back. So you can no longer get a discount on your first mobile deal with them.

You can however get an exclusive discount on extra mobile plans if you have Virgin Media home broadband or TV and also a pay monthly phone or SIM contract with Virgin Mobile. Non-Virgin Media customers cannot.

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 total potential saving of £96 a year.

This not only brings the benefits of lower prices but with multiple SIMs on one account, you also get one singular bill each month. So it's more convenient than having multiple deals with loads of networks.

There are an estimated 5.9 million cable TV and broadband customers on Virgin Media, so they'd be foolish not to throw in some extra perks to entice them to take mobile too. But how valuable are they?

On pay monthly, you get unlimited calls to other people on Virgin Mobile. That's handy when most of Virgin's plans don't include unlimited minutes. But realistically, is it going to save you hard cash? It's hard to measure.

Virgin no longer offer pay as you go but they did used to have an unlimited calls benefit for broadband customers when you topped up with at least £10 a month.

The main exclusive Virgin Media customer benefit is getting access to an unlimited data plan on both SIM only and phone contracts that people without Virgin's cable services at home cannot access (more on this below).

SIM only plans

Exclusive unlimited data plan for Virgin Media customers

Unlimited data for £32 a monthSee full deal

Unlimited data is making a comeback this year with all these UK mobile networks now offering it. And Virgin Mobile are one of only two providers using EE's superfast 4G network on that list.

If you're a Virgin Media broadband or TV customer (or anyone at your address is), you qualify for an exclusive plan that gets you unlimited everything: minutes, texts and data:

Non-Virgin Media cable customers can't get the plan (and they really do check when you try to buy the plan). So it's a decent perk and a plan is priced reasonably for one on the EE network, even if it's not the cheapest overall deal.

If you don't need unlimited data, you can compare all Virgin Mobile SIMs below, and you'll still get unlimited calls to Virgin Mobile numbers, as a thank you for having their broadband or TV.
