Virgin Media Business makes £500m gov’t PSL

Telecoms provider approved for data access, telephony solutions and conferencing services.

By Alexander Sword

Virgin Media Business has been appointed a preferred supplier for the Government’s IT framework.

The business telecoms provider was awarded the status in all ten categories of the Network Service Framework (NFS).

These include data access and mobility services, localised network services, various telephony solutions and conferencing services.

Now operational, the framework will attract more than £500 million of public sector ICT spend by the end of this year.

The NSF is the primary procurement communications framework for public sector organisations such as healthcare providers, emergency services and local councils.

Peter Kelly, Managing Director, Virgin Media Business said: "Virgin Media Business has a long track record of working in partnership with the public sector."

Virgin Media’s history with the public sector includes serving 250 NHS organisations, 60 percent of the UK’s police force and half the UK’s fire and ambulance services.

Kelly adds: "It’s essential these organisations have the tools and solutions they need to securely communicate, share information and collaborate with each other."

The news comes after Virgin Media Business’s parent company, Virgin Media, signalled plans to expand its national wi-fi network, as reported by the Daily Telegraph. The company will apparently install infrastructure in street-side cabinets and upgrade home routers to provide a more pervasive network.
