Virgin Media O2 to cut up to 2,000 UK jobs
Mobile operator Virgin Media O2 is to slash up to 2,000 UK jobs, or 12% of its total workforce, by the end of this year. The company, which is British, came together in 2021 through a merger between mobile operator O2 and broadband giant Virgin Media. Earlier this year, BT, which is the UK's largest broadband and mobile provider, said it would shed up to 55,000 jobs by the end of the decade, mostly in the UK, as it cuts costs. Up to a fifth of those jobs will be replaced by technologies including artificial intelligence, the firm said. The move came shortly after Vodafone said it would axe a tenth of its staff over the next three years, equating to 11,000 jobs.
