Virgin Media news

Virgin Media's broadband customer base continued to grow between July and September 2017.

According to its latest trading statement, the company attracted an extra 51,800 broadband subscribers during Q3.

While this was down on the increase of 80,700 recorded in Q1, it was considerably higher than the 30,900 surge seen in Q2.

This means that Virgin Media now has a total of 5,080,100 broadband subscribers.

Some 64 per cent of these customers now take speeds of 100Mbps or more, compared with 51 per cent a year ago.

In addition, figures showed that 41 per cent of its broadband subscribers - or 2.3 million people - now have its best-in-class Wi-Fi router.

Virgin Media also confirmed that Project Lightning - a £3 billion scheme to extend ultrafast fibre broadband to 17 million homes by 2019 - added a record 147,000 premises in Q3.

The upturn in broadband customer numbers comes after Ofcom revealed that between April and June, Virgin Media racked up fewer complaints than any other major broadband provider apart from Sky.

The company was the subject of just 13 complaints per 100,000 customers, whereas the industry average was 18 complaints per 100,000 customers during Q2.
