I think Liberty is treading water now. It's sold off some of its companies to Vodafone and its looking to offload the rest as soon as the right opportunity presents itself. Owner John Malone is well into his eighties now and is starting to retire from his various roles, so once he goes, so will his empire.
They may not reach the anticipated target by 2020 but they are still committed to expanding at the right pace and the right price. They have delivered 1.3 million new homes to ultra fast connections. Whilst BT and the other alt-nets talk a good game they have delivered little so far.

VM hasnít had a cent of government money, so it has to ensure it all makes commercial sense.

In regards to the future, who knows, Malone is on record as saying his senior management has first refusal on his shares when the time comes.

Re: Liberty Global second quarter 2018 results

Genuine question, a lot of people seem to have some kind of source for their information on this forum. Are these sources generally right or is it pure guesswork because the source just so happens to work for the company and are just guessing what could happen?

Re: Liberty Global second quarter 2018 results

Well all I will say is i’m Usually more right that wrong. I’ve been with company 23 years, which is possibly longer that some on this forum have been alive. I’m generally well across most things network related, and treat the fine line in regards to what I can and can’t say.

I’m sure the mods have access to my profile and could easily verify my credentials. Without divulging my identity.

In my case, I don't have a source. Just opinion based on observation. Go with what the person who works for VM says over what I say, although I would imagine all his opinions are his own and not those of his employer in any case

Not true in my case - and I was just speculating. Made that fairly clear I think.
