Virgin Media has offloaded its remaining 100,000 copper broadband customers to rival service provider TalkTalk.

The firm previously offered copper-based broadband customers to households outside the reach of its own cable network.

However, Virgin Media made little effort promoting the service, which closed to new customers in September 2013.

Now it has taken the decision to cease DSL operations entirely, by selling its remaining copper broadband customers to TalkTalk.

Speaking to, a Virgin Media spokesperson said that, as the firm continues to invest in and expand its super-fast, fibre-optic network, "the time is right" to hand over its remaining copper customers.

"We are working closely with TalkTalk to ensure the transition is seamless and people have everything they need to make the switch," the representative stated.

A TalkTalk spokesperson told the news provider that the company was "pleased" to have agreed the deal, which reflects the scale and quality of its network.

"These customers will be able to benefit from our full range of great value products, including TV and mobile, and we aim to make all of them better off," the representative added.
