Virgin Media overstated superfast broadband rollout

According to parent company Liberty Global, Virgin Media originally said it had connected 465,000 new premises in the UK and Ireland in 2016. Liberty also said Virgin Media had "Inadvertently" classified a further 9,000 unfinished premises as connected, when they had not been. Four Virgin Media employees have been suspended in connection with Liberty's investigation and could face disciplinary action "Including dismissal". The company said the setback would affect the total number of premises Virgin Media connected during the first half of 2017. Launched in 2015, Virgin's Project Lightening was designed to connect about four million more UK homes and businesses to broadband speeds of 152Mbs.
