How Virgin Media Business Wholesale is expanding the network
Our fibre-optic network has always been our crown jewel, and we continually invest to grow our footprint. Since 2015, we’ve connected an additional 2.5 million premises to our fixed network through Project Lightning. In total, we now have more than 15.5 million UK premises connected and we’re not slowing down any time soon.
Now that we’ve joined forces with O2, we have the capacity to do even more amazing things for our partners. We’re investing to connect more of the UK’s digital infrastructure — from cabinets to Data Centres – bringing us closer to your end customers. Partnering with O2 lit the fuse on a major £10bn project to extend “full fibre” FTTP and 5G mobile services, delivering ultrafast speeds to more premises across the UK. It’s our biggest investment in over a decade.
What will this mean for our partners?
We will have completely upgraded our HFC network with FTTP by the end of 2028, increasing our wholesale network to even more of the UK and making more premises serviceable for our partners. We’ll also be exploring new capabilities to bring our partners, enabling them to serve the changing needs of UK businesses.
