Speaking about the plan Jeff Dodds, Chief Operating Officer at Virgin Media, said: “The launch of our Essential broadband service is about supporting customers who are experiencing financial difficulty and uncertainty. We all know how important connectivity is right now to our day to day lives, so this reliable, hassle-free service will help people to get online and carry out essential activities.

“We are committed to supporting our customers and will continue to play our vital role in keeping the country connected in these difficult times.”

Although 15Mbps is well below the UK average speed, the fact Virgin is offering this connection at such a low price and without the need to sign up to any long-term contracts will be welcomed by many who are concerned about taking on a large financial commitment in the current climate.
