Get double speed and a free Amazon Echo device with Virgin broadband deals now

virgin media broadband deal with free amazon echo

We reckon all that weekend sun must have gone to Virgin Media's head. It has decided to launch two simultaneous perks with its super fast broadband deals to try and bring in new customers.

(Update: Sorry, but you've missed out on the Virgin broadband offer for a free Amazon Echo device. The double speed promotion is still on however, so be sure to check out the best Virgin broadband deals on our dedicated guide).

Firstly, its doubled the speed of all its VIVID 50 and 100 broadband and TV plans. So that means average speeds of 108Mb where you would have previously got 54Mb, and a staggering 213Mb instead of 108Mb. We're talking potential downloads of 26MB per second - as sizzling as the weekend's weather.

But we promised you two perks. And the second comes in the form of a FREE Amazon Echo device. That's the full blown Amazon Echo (worth £90) with the majority of Virgin's premium broadband and TV deals, and the £50 Echo Dot for all of its other internet plans. And if you already have an Echo or simply aren't bothered, you can choose bill credit to the equivalent value instead.

But don't delay - Virgin's flash sale ends at midnight this Wednesday.

Is Virgin fibre broadband available in my area?

Around 60% of the UK households are now able to receive superfast Virgin broadband. It's easy to discover whether you're one of the lucky 3-in-5 - head to the price comparison chart at the bottom of this page, enter your postcode where indicated and if deals show as available then you're laughing.

How do I claim my Amazon Echo?

Virgin Media says that your Amazon Echo device will be dispatched automatically 28 days after your broadband is installed, but you won't be able to get your hands on it if you cancel prior to installation or before the end of Virgin's 14-day Customer Satisfaction Guarantee period.

If you decide to go for the £50 or £90 bill credit instead, this will be applied to your first bill or bills.

Existing Virgin Media broadband customers

Sorry, the Virgin website confirms that the offer is for new customers only. If you're already with Virgin and like the look of a smart home assistant, then you can use our dedicated best Amazon Echo deals page to find today's cheapest price.
