Virgin Media launches quad-play bundles

May 6, 2014

Virgin Media has unveiled its new ‘Big Bundles’. For the first time, the UK’s fastest widely available broadband can now be combined with a mobile SIM as well as pay-TV and home phone services.

Each Big Bundle can be tailored to suit a customer’s individual or family needs. This includes the flexibility to take more of any particular service, such as adding Sky Sports or Movies channels.

The first bundles are initially available exclusively for existing Virgin Media customers but will be available to new customers from the end of May. Every Big Bundle offers Virgin Media’s superfast broadband as standard of at least 50Mb.

For £45 a month, the ‘Big Kahuna’ bundle makes the most of the power of Virgin Media’s network by boasting 152Mb broadband. With 152Mb, users can download an HD movie in less than four minutes and an entire music album in four seconds.  This bundle also includes TiVo with over 230 TV channels with over 40 in HD, such as every BT Sport channel, and a home phone service. When taken as a full quad-play the ‘Big Kahuna’ includes an exclusive mobile SIM with 250MB of data, unlimited texts and minutes for £5 extra per month.

Another Big Bundle, the ‘Big Bang’, makes 100Mb broadband available together with TiVo and a home phone talk plan at £30 a month.

Dana Strong, chief operating officer at Virgin Media said: “Our fantastic new bundles deliver unprecedented value as standard. For the first time, households will be able to get the best broadband together with the UK’s best value mobile SIM, as part of a bundle perfectly tailored to the customer’s needs. And I’m delighted our current customers have the chance to enjoy this fantastic new flexibility and unparalleled value first.”
