Employer Description

Our shareholders and investment partners have recently announced the creation of a new fibre joint venture, which aims to provide up to 7 million premises with a new wholesale full fibre network. This incredible move represents our significant commitment to the UK and a boost to the nation's digital economy at a crucial time.

This is going to be HUGE! The partnership will initially roll out fibre to 5 million homes not currently served by Virgin Media O2's network by 2026, with the opportunity to expand to an additional 2 million homes. This new fibre venture, alongside VMO2's existing network, will offer greater wholesale choice to other operators across the country.
