Virgin Media Ireland ‘real momentum’

August 8, 2017

Paul Farrell, Vice-President of Commercial at Virgin Media said: “Our revenues in the quarter increased year on year by 2 per cent to reach €102 million, reflecting the acquisition of UTV Ireland, now part of TV3 Group revenues and continued growth in our Mobile and B2B segments.”

“We are generating real momentum with our network build and have already switched on new homes and businesses in Dundalk, Drogheda, Ballina, Enniscorthy, Gorey, Tullamore, Kildare and Greystones. Ultrafast Broadband is becoming essential and our new customers are benefiting from being connected to Ireland’s only truly ultrafast broadband network.”

“We continue to champion small businesses and innovation through our UK and Ireland VOOM Competition. Coroflo won the Irish regional pitch competition and they will get to meet Richard Branson later this year.”

“Our Broadcast business has had a strong quarter. TV3 officially opened a newly upgraded Studio One in May and recorded an all-time high of 18 per cent share of viewing. TV3 also announced a strategic partnership with Sky to give advertisers access to more than 30 million targetable television viewers in the UK and Ireland.”
