Latest Virgin Media publications
Mobile operator O2 is in talks to merge with Virgin Media in a move which would create one of the UK’s largest telecoms and media firms.
Telefonica, O2’s Spanish owner, confirmed it is in discussions with Virgin-owner Liberty Global over a deal between the two firms.
Virgin Media has apologised after a data breach left the personal details of around 900,000 customers unsecured and accessible. The company said that the breach occurred after one of its marketing databases was “incorrectly configured” which allowed unauthorised access. It assured those affected by the breach that the database “did not include any passwords or financial details” but said it contained information such as names, home and email addresses, and phone numbers.
