Virgin signs millionth customer


Virgin Media has signed one million mobile contract customers to date, with a 40 per cent increase in new connections in the last 12 months.

Virgin Media executive director of mobile and home phone Graeme Oxby (pictured) said: “We’re delighted to have reached the one million milestone as we continue to build on our unique ‘quad-play’ line-up of mobile, broadband, TV and home phone.

“With market-leading mobile tariffs, built on simplicity and flexibility, exciting new handsets and outstanding value for money across all of our bundles, more of our customers are choosing to take more services with Virgin Media and are making the most of the digital world.”

Virgin Media launched free calls from Virgin home phones to Virgin Mobiles and claimed within the first two weeks of the offer, customers made 70,000 hours of calls, collectively saving in excess of £100,000 each week.
