Virgin Media returned to broadband subscriber growth during Q3 2014, adding a net 36,700 customers between July and September.

The cable broadband provider lost 12,000 subscribers during the second quarter of the year - the majority of whom were students returning home for the summer.

But there was no repeat of this performance in Q3 as Virgin Media boosted its overall customer base to 4,561,800 homes.

Of these, 4,464,100 take cable broadband from the firm, while another 97,700 still take services via the slower Virgin National platform.

Customers can no longer sign up for the defunct ADSL service, which shed another 11,000 subscribers during the last three months.

Mike Fries, Chief Executive of Liberty Global - the owner of Virgin Media - said the firm is continuing to bring innovative products to market.

"Our third-quarter results were driven in large part by record volume growth, underpinned by strong consumer demand for our next-generation video platforms, our market-leading broadband speeds, and our increasingly converged products," he stated.
