Virgin Mobile’s Family Plan offers discount to telecoms customers

Written by: Emma Lunn
Virgin Media customers can knock up to £96 a year off their family’s mobile bill by grouping together SIMs.

Virgin Mobile has launched a Family Plan for families who have Virgin Media broadband or TV. The plan groups together up to five SIMs on one account and for every SIM added you get a £2 monthly discount.

It says five people on the plan could save up to £96 a year in total.

The Family Plan also comes with unlimited calls between family members on the account. The main account holder can view each individual mobile plan, manage data and device usage and stay on top of how much is being spent across the account by using the My Virgin Mobile app.

Other members of Family Plan can view their own individual usage and allowances through the app.

Virgin Mobile’s multi-SIM plan also includes online security features, powered by F-Secure, to give parents peace of mind at no additional cost for 12 months. The security features include time limits, app control, content blocking and a “finder” service. These controls can be accessed and amended by the account holder at any time via the F-Secure app.

Virgin Mobile’s Family Plan gives families flexibility to choose from a variety of SIM-only deals or Freestyle plans. For example, customers could choose to have a 12-month SIM-only deal and two Freestyle handset deals all registered under one Family Plan account. Customers will also be able to choose from Virgin Mobile’s entire handset range.

Annie Brooks, executive director of Virgin Mobile, said: “Juggling family life isn’t always easy in today’s digital world and the growing number of devices can make it even more complex. Our Family Plan aims to take some of the pressure off parents, making their family’s mobile services simple, affordable and safe. Together with our unrivalled ultrafast broadband and fully loaded TV services, our Family Plan gives customers the ultimate line up of fast, flexible and reliable connectivity in home and on the go.”

Virgin Media recently launched new bundles which bring all of its services – broadband, TV, mobile and landline – together into one package.
