O2 first partnered with The O2 arena in 2005, and its 5G mobile network is already available inside the venue
Virgin Media is now at The O2 and plans to install its hyperfast gigabit broadband network immediately.
A new experimental studio is set to open at the arena this summer and Virgin Media O2 has ambitions to make The O2 the best connected entertainment venue in the UK.
Through Virgin Media’s partnership with The O2, the brand plans to bring innovative connected experiences for customers at its experimental studio space that showcases its products and services.
O2 and Virgin Media customers can enjoy exclusive access to experiences and special offers such as priority tickets two days before general sale.
The new experimental studio will focus on Virgin Media O2’s new TV platform- Stream, and later this year a gaming space will open to give visitors the opportunity to play games on the latest platforms and exclusive access to industry events, game titles and esports competitions.
Virgin Media O2 director of partnerships and sponsorship Gareth Griffiths said: “We’re delighted to be able to bring Virgin Media and O2 together under the same roof at The O2.
“Virgin Media will create an enhanced connected experience for visitors with gigabit broadband available so that it will become seamless to share unforgettable moments online.
