As O2 has ten times the number of customers that VM has (34m v 3.4m) you would think that it would be the logical brand to retain if the new company did choose just the one brand.

Half(-ish) the UK population? That doesn't seem correct, it seems unlikely. How is the figure made up?

Still not 10x.

Virgin Media UK has 5.5m cable customers taking over 13.4m products (TV, phone, BB) plus a further 3.2m Virgin Mobile subs

As well as those taking multiple sim cards, the O2 figure also includes 8.7m wholesale customers - Sky Mobile, Lycamobile, GiffGaff, Tesco Mobile


RGUs (as of March 2020)

O2 Retail - 26,368,000
Virgin Media UK (cable + mobile) 16,700,500

Re: Liberty Global in talks to merge Virgin Media with O2

VM has an ARPU of around 50, and O2 of only 14. So although VM has a smaller customer base, the scope for improved revenue is large.
