Virgin Media launches unlimited VIP tariff


Complete unlimited allowances for £31 a month, with MVNO challenging customers to take another tariff if it offers more value

Virgin Media has launched its VIP tariff, which the MVNO claims is the best plan available in the mobile market.

The tariff is priced at £20, £25, £28 and £31 a month. The most expensive comes with unlimited mobile minutes, calls to landlines, calls to 0970, 0845, 0800 and 0808 numbers, texts, and data.

Existing Virgin Media customers will receive a £5 monthly discount off their line rental, with all price plans coming with unlimited calls and texts to Virgin Mobiles and free insurance with 24 hour handset replacement worth £7.99 a month.

Virgin Media executive director of mobile and home phone Graeme Oxby (pictured) said: “We’re delighted to offer our customers these exclusive and unbeatable offers they can’t get anywhere else. We’ve built VIP to be the ultimate worry-free monthly tariff, with unlimited calls to many 08 numbers as well as inclusive insurance with 24 hour handset replacement for Virgin Media customers. In fact we’re so confident in our VIP pay monthly tariff if customers can find a better tariff out there, we challenge them to take it!”

Virgin Media has also refreshed its SIM-only proposition with a range of new tariffs with the £15 a month VIP deal offering unlimited minutes, texts and data in what the firm said makes it “the best unlimited SIM-only deal on the market.”

This plan is joined by the £10 a month ‘Starter’ and £12 a month ‘Essential tariffs, both offering unlimited texts and 1GB of data with 250 and 1,200 minutes respectively. Virgin Media customers taking the SIM-only deals will also be provided with unlimited calls and texts to other Virgin Mobile customers.

Oxby added: “We wanted to create the best SIM Only deal out there and with unlimited data, texts and minutes for just £15 per month on a flexible 30 day contract, we believe we’ve done just that. If you’re holding onto an old handset you love, or if you want to buy the latest smart phone without being tied in to a long contract, our SIM Only deals are well worth a look.”
