Liberty Global improves customer numbers in Q3

Friday 6 November 2015 | 08:23 CET | News
Liberty Global reported improving customer numbers in the third quarter, with the net addition of 320,000 new subscribers. Growth was led by Germany (102,000) and the UK (68,000), while Ziggo in the Netherlands (-18,000) still struggled to turn around its performance since the merger with UPC. Liberty Global said it's still aiming to add over 1 million new subscribers in the full year, after 526,000 in the first nine months of the year. In Europe, the cable operator added 300,000 subscribers in Q3 to finish September with a total 53.2 million revenue-generating units, at 48.8 million homes
