Our proud history of investing in the UK’s digital infrastructure began in 2013, when we acquired Virgin Media. Since then we have spent more than £11bn upgrading and expanding Virgin Media’s network to cover more than half of the UK.

We’ve already enhanced our network to bring next-generation gigabit broadband to our entire UK footprint – fulfilling almost two-thirds of the Government’s ambition to get gigabit broadband to at least 85% of homes by 2025. We’re also in the process of upgrading our entire network to full fibre to the premises (FTTP) by 2028, building on our leadership position as the UK’s largest gigabit broadband provider.
