Who we are
Since the invention of the internet, digital technology has had an increasing impact on the way we live. As a leading communications provider it’s not just the technology that interests us – what matters is how it can improve the lives and prospects of everyone.
It’s true that, with the power of digital at everyone’s fingertips, some things can happen we don’t like and we all need to work together to minimise these. But the overwhelming response we hear from people is that Britain thinks digital technology is having an exciting, positive impact on all our lives.
We believe in digital that makes good things happen for people, communities and businesses. We will do everything we can to ensure technology is a force for good. This is why we’re committed to providing the best guidance, support and services.
As the UK’s first provider of all four broadband, TV, mobile phone and home phone services, we will champion this cause with everyone, from our people to politicians and even our competitors, who can help make sure that our collective digital future is good for everyone.
Our growing cable network – the result of multi-billion pound private investment – already delivers ultrafast broadband to over half of all UK homes, with speeds of up to 152Mb, as well as market leading connectivity to thousands of public and private sector organisations across the country.
We continue to evolve what is the most advanced interactive television service in the country, bringing together broadcast TV, thousands of hours of TV On Demand and the best of the web in a single set-top box powered by TiVo®. We were even the first to offer HD TV and 3D On Demand to millions of British households.
Virgin Mobile was launched over a decade ago as the world’s first virtual mobile network and we’re also one of the largest fixed-line home phone providers.
Today, Virgin Media is a part of Liberty Global plc, the world’s largest international cable company. Together Virgin Media and Liberty Global serve 24 million customers across 14 countries, helping connect people to the digital world and enabling them to discover and experience its endless possibilities.
