Virgin Media has announced it added over 55,500 UK broadband customers over the last quarter, bringing its overall customer base up to 4,625,800.

It comes on the back of a busy few months for the company, with its Project Lighting network expansion aiming to cover 17 million premises in urban areas by 2020.

It has also boosted its maximum cable broadband speeds to 200Mbps and rebranded its high-end service as 'Vivid'.

Mike Fries, Liberty Global CEO, said: “Subscriber growth is back on track with 320,000 RGU additions in the third quarter, including 220,000 new broadband subscribers.

"This acceleration in volume growth was fuelled by our operations in Germany and the U.K. Continued traction of our cutting-edge Horizon TV platform resulted in a record quarter of almost 250,000 new subscriptions.

"The execution of our aggressive technology roadmap continues delivering innovative products like our recently launched Replay TV functionality and next-generation WiFi gateway.”

The company claims 56% of its customers are now choosing ultrafast broadband speeds of over 100 Mbps, while another 43% are now on a related package, which is up from the 40% recorded last quarter.
