This brings the company's total number of subscriptions to 858,500. Digital TV subscriptions were reported as having biggest number of subscribers at 384,900, an increase of 3%; followed by 241,400 broadband customers, an increase of 31%; and 143,800 phone customers, an increase of 65%.
Dana Strong, CEO of UPC Ireland (pictured), said: "The success and substantial network investment in people and infrastructure comes at a time when many would have been concerned about the viability of big investments in Ireland but we are confident our fibre investment will continue to be well-received. With 87% of UPC homes across urban centres and regional towns able to receive 30Mb/s broadband and 60% able to receive 100Mb/s, we are the clear choice for quality services at great value."
