Liberty-owned MSO Virgin Media to cut 900 jobs

John Malone-controlled British MSO Virgin Media has announced plans to lay off 900 workers over the next two years. 

The cable company said it is reorganizing to focus on network expansion, but did not indicate where the cuts would come from. 

"Over the last three years Virgin Media has been transformed," Virgin CEO Tom Mockridge told the London Telegraph. "We're expanding, investing and growing our business. The proposed reorganization will give us an even sharper focus on the customer, network expansion and business growth."
