UPC announces record growth in Q1

UPC Ireland today announced record results for Q1 201, showing an 11% growth in total service subscriptions when compared with the same period last year.

UPC currently has 811,700 service subscriptions with strong growth in all three of its core products, digital TV, broadband and home phone.

Recently appointed CEO of UPC Ireland, Dana Strong commented: "UPC Ireland had record growth in the first quarter of this year, with total subscriptions up 26,000 in the quarter.

"Broadband and voice growth continues to be particularly strong at 34% and 58% up respectively year-on-year. We are also pleased to see cable video growth for the second successive quarter.

"Our new acquisition campaign, launched in January, with our all in one bundle of digital TV, phone and 20Mb fibrepower broadband for €65 clearly resonated with Irish consumers.

"Offering twice the broadband speed for the same or lower price than the alternative providers prompted increased switching for consumers.

"Our growth in the first quarter shows that Irish customers are seeking better value and choosing UPC."
