The new tariffs offer the best value for people who already have an account with Virgin Media (landline phone, broadband or TV) but you don’t have to be an existing customer to benefit from these new tariff offerings.
On the contract side, Virgin will now offer a £5 per month rental reduction when signing up for a 24-month contract over 18-months.
The network is also releasing a range of high-end handsets, such as the Sony Ericsson X10 and HTC Desire, with pricing that undercuts its rivals. For example, the HTC Desire will be available free of charge on a £30 per month, 24-month, contract.
Virgin Media customers will get a further £5 per month discount, with free calls between Virgin mobile phones on selected tariffs over £10 per month.
A SIM-only version of its deal is available with a standard 30-day rolling contract. £10 a month will get you 200 minutes of calls, unlimited texts. This rises to £20 with 800 minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited web.
Virgin Media customers with a landline benefit even more, with the ability to make free calls from a landline to any Virgin mobile, during the period(s) where free calls are on offer (depending on tariff). These periods range from weekends, evening and weekends to unlimited calls at any time.
The ‘Simply 8p’ tariff is exclusive to Virgin Media customers that have a home phone, broadband or TV service. As the name implies, calls and texts are both 8p each. As long as there is credit on the account, 50 minutes of calls will be included each month.
