The company has committed to reach 50% of the UK population with 5G by 2023. It delivered 5G to over 2,000 sites across the country last year and now has 5G coverage in areas spanning 300 towns and cities.
In terms of 4G, Virgin Media O2 upgraded capacity in 41,228 postcodes across the London in 2021, and more than 241,000 nationally.
Jeanie York, CTO at Virgin Media O2 said: “We are taking a customer-centric approach to our mobile network strategy, which centres on optimising our network where our customers need them most.
“This means focusing on densifying our coverage where are customers are going to feel the most benefit, such as busy urban cities like London, while also investing to extend coverage in less populated areas.”
