NTL planning “thousands of redundancies”

Antony Savvas

NTL is reported to be planning to make thousands of redundancies, as it seeks to cut costs and eradicate operational duplications following the completion of its takeover of Telewest.

The company may also outsource its call centre operations, according to newspaper reports over the weekend.

NTL recently also acquired Virgin Mobile and is expected to re-brand itself under the Virgin name.

Up to a third of NTL’s workforce could be axed, with a number of call centre jobs moving over to India.

Telewest’s headquarters in Woking are among the operations set to be culled.

NTL has not commented on the threat of redundancies, which could be announced tomorrow when the company posts its quarterly results.
