Virgin Media adds one millionth mobile contract customer
Virgin Media has increased its number of mobile contract customers by 40% in the last 12 months taking its total to one million, the company announced today (26 April).
The firm attributed the rise to a range of competitive tariffs, high-end handsets and some exclusive benefits for Virgin Media customers.
Graeme Oxby, executive director of mobile and home phone at Virgin Media said: 'We're delighted to have reached the one million milestone as we continue to build on our unique quad-play line-up of mobile, broadband, TV and home phone.
'With market-leading mobile tariffs, built on simplicity and flexibility, exciting new handsets and outstanding value for money across all of our bundles, more of our customers are choosing to take more services with Virgin Media and are making the most of the digital world.'
Virgin Media recently launched a range of new, high-end handsets, including the LG InTouch Max, HTC Desire, BlackBerry Bold 9700 and Nokia X6.
The company has built on its prepay heritage to offer a range of contract tariffs, including unlimited texts and unlimited web access from 20 a month.
Customers that take Virgins quad play offering of broadband, TV or home phone services are given benefits and savings, such as a choice of high-end handsets for less, additional minutes to other Virgin Mobile phones or unlimited Virgin Mobile to Virgin Mobile calls.
