Virgin Media to use Vodafone mobile network, replacing BT

Virgin Media has agreed to use Vodafone's wholesale mobile network services in the UK, replacing a deal it currently has with BT.

The so-called mobile virtual network operator agreement would include both both voice and data services, including 5G.

Virgin Mobile 5G services were set to launch on the Vodafone network before the transition took place, the companies said.

'We've worked with BT to provide mobile services for many years and will continue to work together in a number of areas,' Virgin Media chief executive Lutz Schuler said.

'We want our customers to have a limitless experience - it's now the right time to take a leap forward with Vodafone to grow further and faster.'

A wholesale agreement has also been struck between both parties in relation to the supply of network services by Virgin Media Business to Vodafone.

(LON:VOD) Vodafone Group PLC share price was +2.41p at 164.39p
