FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does Virgin Media broadband work?
Through the use of our DOCSIS 3.0 cable magic you can access a broadband internet connection that is designed to work over HFC network. As our broadband is provided over our own fully owned network, a phone line is not required, so you don’t have the additional costs of line rental charges to other operators. And, as we use coaxial cable, our technology can provide greater bandwidth than telephone lines and so we can provide significantly faster access to the web than DSL operators who provide their service over copper pairs.
How can customers avail of the new broadband speeds?
Here at Virgin Media Business we are constantly working to bring our customers the best services we can. New and existing customers can avail of these services by calling our Business Team on 1800 940 062 or complete an enquiry form on our website.

Do I get Wi-Fi with the modem?
The cable modem has wireless capabilities, however as the device is the demarcation point the service we deliver is only to the device. Due to the nature of wireless and Wi-Fi the speeds that you signed up for are up to the modem. Many factors may cause the speed to be less on your mobile, tablet, laptop and other connected devices. Things such as distance, type of wireless device used (Laptop, phone, tablet, pda etc.), frequency used and interference from other devices and appliances may both interfere and cause the wireless to operate at a slower rate.
Do you offer a Wi-Fi service?
