Virgin Media news

Virgin Media continued to attract new broadband customers during the final three months of 2014, with a net 64,000 households signing up for super-fast internet services.

The firm - which is owned by US cable giant Liberty Global - now has 4,625,800 fixed-line broadband subscribers across the UK.

Virgin Media increased its broadband subscriber growth rate between October and December, having acquired 37,600 subscribers between July and September.

The firm is targeting further growth of its internet business, having recently announced plans for a major network expansion.

Virgin Media is to spend £3 billion deploying super-fast broadband infrastructure in parts of the UK it does not currently cover.

This will enable another four million homes and businesses to sign up for Virgin Media services.

"In virtually all of the areas we have identified for expansion, BT is the only option available right now," said Virgin Media Chief Executive Tom Mockridge.

"Its ageing copper telephony wires are not capable of the ultra-fast connectivity that Virgin Media delivers. Soon we will offer unbeatable services to even more homes and businesses across the country."
