Virgin adds 80k RGUs in Q3; sharpest UK growth since 2009

Friday 4 November 2016 | 11:25 CET | News
Virgin Media recruited 80,000 RGUs on an organic basis in the third quarter, up 7 percent from a year earlier, thanks to the sharpest UK growth since 2009, as losses of video customers slowed and as triple-play bundles drew new clients. Organic customer additions in the UK and Ireland totalled 45,000, up 7.1 percent, hitting a record 49,000 in the UK driven by the Project Lightning network build-out and summer promotions.
