If your broadband speeds are slowing you down, you might want to check out what Virgin Media has on offer this weekend. The fibre broadband firm has a swathe of bargains on its fastest speeds with some deals cutting the monthly bills down to their lowest ever price.

In fact, you can even get the ultimate Gig1 service – which beams the web into your living room at over 1,000Mbps – for just £50.99 per month. That’s a whopping £11.01 saving off the usual cost. Upgrading to this premium plan will allow you to download a feature-length movie in High Definition in under 40 seconds or get a massive 50GB game on PlayStation 5 downloaded and installed in just seven minutes.

If Gig1 sounds a bit excessive, there are other deals including Virgin Media’s M100 (108Mbps speeds) for £26.99 per month or M350 (362Mbps) for £38.99 per month.

These are all solid deals that will save you money and speed up your downloads, but there isn’t long to decide about making the switch with many of the price cuts ending tomorrow, Sunday February 6.

WHAT SPEEDS DO YOU REALLY NEED?

Not sure what Virgin Media speeds are really best for your needs? We’re all using our broadband more and more but not everyone requires blisteringly quick downloads. If you simply browse the web, send a few emails and watch the odd movie on Netflix then a standard 36Mbps connection should cope just fine.

However, if you have a busy home full of phones, tablets, consoles and smart devices then you will definitely want something faster and it’s not just about quicker downloads.

Your broadband is a bit like a motorway – the more traffic that runs through it the slower it gets. So, if you have a bustling house with everyone trying to stream and make Zoom calls at the same time it’s best to get the fastest speeds you can afford to avoid annoying buffering.

Here’s how long it takes to download a full HD movie with different speeds on offer from Virgin Media.

• SPEED 100Mbps – DOWNLOAD TIME = 6 minutes

• SPEED 200Mbps – DOWNLOAD TIME = 3 minutes

• SPEED 350Mbps – DOWNLOAD TIME = 2 minutes

• SPEED 500Mbps – DOWNLOAD TIME = 1 minute

• SPEED 1Gbps- DOWNLOAD TIME = 35 seconds
