Virgin Media is the second-biggest broadband provider in the UK, but that doesn't necessarily make it the best. Its extensive fibre network, plus TV, phone and mobile services, have given it a reach to challenge BT. But in the past its quest to be the best broadband provider has been hit by poor scores for customer service. Has this changed in our latest survey?

What makes a Which? Recommended Provider?

Which? Recommended Providers are the cream of the crop, and the accolade is only given to broadband companies that achieve a customer score of 70% or above.

That's not all. We know that price is important., so we only give the award to those companies that we feel charge a reasonable price for their services. If they charge too much, they're not eligible to be Which? Recommended Providers, whatever score they receive in the survey.
