Chorus-NTL renamed

CABLE television and broadband company Chorus-NTL has renamed itself UPC as it details plans to upgrade its fibre-power broadband speeds to 100Mb.

The group owner, Liberty Global, uses the name UPC in several other European countries.

UPC has expanded its call centre in Limerick after taking on 50 extra employees to answer the phones in the afternoon and evenings.

The company plans to spend €3m over the next three months on a high-profile media campaign, which follows a €300m investment in the Chorus/NTL network over the past six years.
