Virgin Media O2’s investment to bring enhanced mobile coverage to Shetland community welcomed by local MSP

  • Beatrice Wishart, the MSP for Shetland, welcomed Virgin Media O2’s multi-million pound investment in the area during a visit to a new tower in Walls which will provide improved mobile coverage to the remote community
  • As part of its commitment to the £1bn Shared Rural Network programme, Virgin Media O2 will either build or upgrade a total of six masts in Shetland over the next few months, transforming connectivity for residents, businesses and visitors
  • The Highlands and Islands is among the rural areas set to benefit most from Shared Rural Network upgrades

24 January 2024: Beatrice Wishart, the MSP for Shetland, has welcomed Virgin Media O2’s investment to transform mobile connectivity on the Shetland Islands.

During a visit to one of the company’s new 4G phone masts in Walls, which will deliver a much-needed boost to mobile signal for communities in rural Shetland, the MSP was updated on Virgin Media O2’s plans to build or upgrade six masts in her constituency as part of the Shared Rural Network programme.

The new masts will provide much-needed improvements to 2G, 3G and 4G mobile services in the area where, until recently, large swathes of the islands have experienced little to no mobile signal from most mobile network operators.

Currently, just 26% of the Highlands and Islands benefits from 4G coverage from all four mobile network operators – Virgin Media O2, Vodafone, EE and Three. This will more than double to 68% after all Shared Rural Network upgrades have been delivered.

The upgrades will provide residents, businesses and visitors to the Shetland Islands with faster and more reliable mobile connectivity than ever before, making it easier to access online services, work and stay connected with friends and family, while also offering them a greater choice of mobile provider.

Beatrice Wishart, the MSP for Shetland, said: “Modern life is increasingly dependent on good digital connectivity, and I believe that every area of the UK should have access to it. Island communities such as Shetland deserve and require quality mobile connectivity, so I welcome Virgin Media O2’s work to bring that to them.”

“It is fantastic to see how the company is bringing mobile coverage to a ‘not spot’ area benefitting the local community which will have a positive impact for businesses, residents, and visitors. Virgin Media O2 is setting an example of how to properly invest in rural networks and long may it continue.”

Paul Kells, Director of Network, Strategy and Engineering at Virgin Media O2, said: “Our Shared Rural Network rollout is making a real, tangible difference to people’s lives. We’re continuing to play our part in bringing reliable 4G coverage to more rural locations across Britain and helping to bridge the digital divide between rural and urban communities.

“Rural Scotland is one of the places benefitting most from our investment, with new and upgraded masts already significantly improving the region’s mobile coverage. We are committed to continuing this rollout and bringing reliable mobile connectivity to more rural areas throughout 2024 and beyond.”

Alastair Davidson, Director of Strategy and Regulation at WIG, said: “Wireless Infrastructure Group are proud to deploy this site with Virgin Media O2 as part of the Shared Rural Network in Shetland. It’s a great example of how we deploy new multi-operator wireless infrastructure to hard-to-reach communities and adds to our portfolio of more than 3,000 towers across the UK.”

O2 announces Samsung Galaxy S24 range with network-first 48-month contract option

  • PRICE: O2 customers can now pre-order the latest Samsung Galaxy S24 devices on a range of flexible, interest-free contracts from three to 48 months* so they can choose a plan that best suits them. 
  • O2 PERKS: All customers can benefit from inclusive EU Roaming at no extra cost, up to 25GB, as well as Priority from O2 which offers exclusive rewards, VIP experiences and pre-sale ticket access to the hottest gigs in town. 
  • UNLOCK DOUBLE DATA: O2 customers who already have, or choose to add, Virgin Media broadband services, can get their new smartphone with a double data boost and inclusive roaming in 75 international destinations – all at no extra cost. 
  • Check out the new range: Best Mobile Phone Deals | Compare Phone & iPhone Contracts (o2.co.uk) 

The brand-new Samsung Galaxy S24 range is now available from O2 on a Custom Plan or Plus Plan, offering complete flexibility so customers can select how much they pay upfront and a contract length that works best for them.  

With more than 30% of UK consumers having owned their smartphone for more than three years¹ – an increase of more than a fifth year on year – O2 is offering a network-first handset contract length of 48-months on the new Samsung S24 range until 6th March 2024, helping customers to extend the lifespan of their device and benefit from a more affordable monthly price should they wish to.  

On a 48-month Custom Plan O2 customers wanting the new Samsung Galaxy S24 256GB handset could enjoy it with 30GB of data from just £45.82 a month or could get the new Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus with 30GB data from £50.19 a month. With O2’s flexible tariffs, customers have the option to flex their data allowance up or down every month to suit their needs, so their mobile plan always works for them and their budget.  

Christian Hindennach, Chief Commercial Officer at Virgin Media O2 said: “We know how excited our customers will be to get their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S24 range, so we’re adding to the perks available from O2 by offering the option of an interest-free 48-month contract to help make their monthly repayments a little more manageable. From inclusive EU roaming at no extra cost, to exclusive perks and rewards with Priority from O2, and now even more flexibility to make their mobile plan work for them, we’re always looking to give our customers more value for their money.” 

Kester Mann, Director of Consumer and Connectivity at CCS Insight said: “O2’s new 48-month contracts will be welcomed by the growing number of customers seeking longer-term deals due to the ongoing squeeze on household budgets. Recent research from CCS Insight shows accelerating demand for mobile plans beyond the traditional two-year timeframe as financial constraints push people to take out more flexible deals spread over a longer period.” 

Those who purchase a device from the new Samsung S24 range on a Custom Plan can enjoy additional benefits at no extra cost, including: 

  • Flexibility: Customers can flex their data allowance up or down every month to suit their needs from a family of tariffs. 
  • EU Roaming: O2 is the only major UK network to offer inclusive EU roaming as standard including texts, calls and up to 25GB data for no extra while they’re away. 
  • O2 Extras: Customers can enjoy up to six months of access to Disney+, Prime and Apple Music courtesy of O2. 

Customers who opt for a Plus Plan* can save up to £269 per contract and can benefit from the following for just £3.99 more per month than the Custom Plan price: 

  • O2 Switch Up: Those wanting to keep up with the latest devices or after the freedom to upgrade mid-contract can do so with O2 Switch Up at no extra cost. The perk allows customers to switch their handset for any new phone of their choice, whether brand new or from O2’s Like New range, every 90 days* regardless of their contract length (as long as the mobile phone is in good condition and meets Switch Up requirements). 
  • O2 Travel Inclusive Zone: O2 customers with a Plus Plan can roam-on in 75 countries, including 49 EU countries and USA, Mexico, Canada and Australia, up to 25GB. 
  • O2 Extras: Customers can benefit from access for up to six months to Disney+, Prime and Apple Music courtesy of O2. 
  • A three-year warranty: If the device develops a fault through normal use during the warranty period, O2 will replace it or refund the customer for free. All parts and labour are included.

Customers who purchase a device from the new Samsung Galaxy S24 range can bag themselves a new phone alongside a host of extra benefits and perks from O2 at the prices listed below and those who pre-order can also access added Samsung offers for no extra cost including:  

  • A Galaxy Watch6, worth £289 RRP* (available for those who pre-order between 17th January to the 25th January). 
  • A storage upgrade to the nearest tier (available for those who pre-order between 17th January to the 30th January).

Virgin Media O2 gigabit broadband now available to 12,000 homes in Heysham and Lancaster for first time

  • Full-fibre broadband with average top speeds of 1,130Mbps now available to more than 12,000 additional homes and businesses in Heysham and Lancaster
  • County Councillor Aidy Riggott welcomes the investment, as residents can now sign up to broadband up to 17 times faster* than the local average.
  • Services are now available following investment by nexfibre, which is investing £4.5bn in the UK to build a new full-fibre wholesale network to 5 million homes by 2026

More than 12,000 homes and businesses in Heysham and Lancaster can now access Virgin Media’s gigabit broadband services for the first time.

Customers in Heysham and the Marsh area of Lancaster can now sign-up to services including Gig1 broadband which offers top speeds of 1,130Mbps – 17 times faster* than local average. These hyperfast connections are perfect for busy households working remotely, streaming UHD TV shows and films, video calling friends and family and playing games online.

Virgin Media’s services are now available locally after work to bring full fibre connections to the area has been completed. The network has been built on behalf of nexfibre, which is investing £4.5bn to deliver high speed fibre to the home (FTTH) connections to 5 million homes across the UK by 2026. Virgin Media O2 is using this next-generation network to deliver its broadband and TV Stream services to homes and businesses in the area.

County Councillor Aidy Riggott, cabinet member for Economic Development and Growth, said: “We welcome the latest expansion of full fibre broadband to over 12,000 homes in Heysham and Marsh, thanks to this multi-million pound investment.

“This step forward aligns strongly with Lancashire’s broader economic and regeneration activities and will build on and support projects delivered by the County Council.

“We look forward to continuing to work closely with our partners in continuing to expand and to enable high quality broadband in the semi-rural and suburban parts of Lancashire to provide an essential boost to the local and national economy.”

Julie Agnew, Managing Director of Fixed Network Expansion at Virgin Media O2 said: “12,000 more premises in Heysham and Lancaster can now feel the benefit of Virgin Media’s services – with packages that include everything from next generation gigabit broadband to easy-to-use TV streaming and entertainment services.

“These ultrareliable full fibre to the home broadband connections come with speeds – up to 17 times faster than local average – providing total peace of mind that whatever you’re doing online, you’ll never be slowed down by your service.”

Rajiv Datta, CEO at nexfibre said: “We’re proud to be able to facilitate access to full fibre broadband to more than 12,000 premises in Heysham and Lancaster, thanks to our multi-million pound investment. We continue on our mission to build and expand our network in suburban and semi-rural areas, play our part in helping to close the digital divide and boost the UK economy.

Virgin Media O2 is leading Britain’s gigabit charge with speeds of 1,000Mbps+ available across its entire network. The company invests around £2bn a year in its networks and services and is also in the process of upgrading its entire fixed network to full fibre to the home (FTTH) technology over the coming years.

In addition to its ultrafast broadband network, Virgin Media O2’s mobile network covers 99% of the nation’s population with 4G, with the business also rolling out 5G services to bring the latest mobile connectivity to more parts of the country. O2 is the only mobile network operator not to have reintroduced roaming fees in Europe and customers can save week-in week-out through Priority – its reward scheme which gives exclusive access to offers, prize draws, competitions, and presale tickets.

Customers of both Virgin Media and O2 can supercharge their services and reap extra rewards through Volt. Alongside double mobile data, roaming in 75 countries, new and existing customers who take a Virgin Media broadband service and an eligible O2 Pay Monthly plan will receive a broadband speed boost to the next tier available – meaning customers on a 500Mbps Virgin Media package could be boosted to Gig1 at no extra charge.

nexfibre is a joint venture between InfraVia Capital Partners, Liberty Global and Telefónica and is financed with £4.5 billion of equity and debt investment. It will initially roll out fibre to 5 million homes not currently served by Virgin Media O2’s network by 2026, with the opportunity to expand to an additional 2 million homes. Virgin Media O2 is the anchor tenant of this joint venture and provides build services to nexfibre. Together the nexfibre and Virgin Media O2 networks will cover up to 23 million premises or around 80% of the UK over the coming years.

Virgin Media O2 signs the Greener Litigation Associate Member Pledge

Virgin Media O2 has committed to reducing the environmental impact of litigation by becoming the latest organisation to become a Greener Litigation Associate Member.

The Associate Member Pledge provides an opportunity for organisations that participate in litigation, but are not litigation businesses, to support Greener Litigation’s work and achieve progress in the transition to Net Zero carbon emissions.

As part of its sustainability strategy, the Better Connections Plan, Virgin Media O2 aims to achieve net zero carbon emissions across its operations, products and supply chain (Scopes 1, 2 and 3 emissions) by the end of 2040.

Last year, the company reduced its carbon emissions (Scopes 1 and 2) by 29% against its 2020 baseline, and prevented more than 29 million tonnes of carbon entering Earth’s atmosphere.

Virgin Media O2’s net zero target has also been validated by the renowned Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), and it became the first UK telco to be recognised by the Carbon Trust for its net zero plan, being awarded the Advancing Level of the organisation’s Route to Net Zero Standard.

The Greener Litigation Associate Member Pledge states:

“Our organisation is committed to taking steps to reduce the environmental impact of our business. We support the objectives of the Greener Litigation Pledge. We are committed to minimising the environmental impact of litigation in which we are involved in line with the Greener Litigation Pledge, including requesting any litigation professionals we engage to do the same.”

Enrique Medina Malo, General Counsel at Virgin Media O2, said:

“By signing the Greener Litigation Pledge, we’re building on our commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions across our operations, products, and supply chain by the end of 2040.

“It means our legal team and suppliers will play an active role in helping us to reduce our impact on the planet, and in-line with climate science to help prevent global temperatures from rising above 1.5 degrees.”

Olivia Wybraniec, Managing Associate Barrister and Greener Litigation Steering Committee Co-Chair, commented: “Virgin Media O2 becomes the fifth Associate Member, and the 125th organisations to confirm its support for sustainable conduct of dispute resolution by joining Greener Litigation. Each of our Associate Members send a powerful message to the lawyers they instruct and suppliers they use, as well as to other organisations, that sustainability must be a central consideration in how we conduct litigation. We welcome Virgin Media O2 as an Associate Member and look forward to working with them to encourage others to sign the Greener Litigation Pledge and conduct litigation sustainably.
