The cable provider Virgin Media has stated that there are a record amount of customers using its broadband service.
This follows an increase of 57,100 new customers signing up for Virgin Media services, taking the total number of users to 3.68 million.
Virgin Media launched its super fast broadband service, which offers a broadband connection speed of around 20 Mbps, in late in 2008, and this service has already attracted 1.2 million users.
The provider also scrapped its 2 Mbps service and upgraded current users to a 10 Mbps service.
However, this increase in new customers and those existing customers upgrading their service has still not prevented the company from posting overall loses of around £50 million in the last quarter of the year.
It is clear that Virgin Media is in a good position despite the loss and the current financial situation.
