Virgin Media RGU additions slow in Q4 marked by lower profit

Thursday 15 February 2018 | 09:40 CET | News
Virgin Media reported preliminary results for the fourth quarter that showed revenues continuing higher and profit again going lower, while customer additions generally slowed from the year before, with the exception of video and postpaid. ARPU also slipped. The company attributed the lower number of additions to reduced growth in its existing footprint, not quite offset by improved performance in new build areas.
