Virgin Media Business has launched its high-speed broadband services in Manchester.
Virgin said its fibre optic speed broadband is already running in places where rival BT won’t be building out to until at least late this year, including Bury, Gately, Salford and Stockport.
The company, which employs 1,100 people in Manchester across offices in Wythenshawe and more than 200 in Preston, added that its network is the only national Next Generation Network in the UK.
Neil Berkett, chief executive of Virgin Media, said: “There is a significant opportunity to leverage the full power of our fibre optic network in the business telecoms market.”
Mark Heraghty, managing director of Virgin Media Business, said he had ambitions growth plans for the company in Manchester.
He added: “But we can only grow if companies like what they see. We want to work with organisations in the area to redefine what’s possible for their business and help them to grasp business opportunities with both hands. Delivering fabulous fundamentals – great service, good quality and value for money – is at the heart of our strategy.”
“The city is known for its resilience and spirit of innovation. Faster and smarter communications has an important role to play in helping businesses to build momentum in 2010.”
