NTL scraps phone, TV and online plan
NTL, the telecommunications giant which owns Cablelink, has abandoned
plans to offer digital TV, internet and telephone services to almost
400,000 customers in the Dublin area.
It has taken the decision because it underestimated the cost of
introducing the new services, the Irish Independent has learned.
The move comes after huge expenditure from the company on the services
it was proposing to introduce this year.
NTL has already spent an estimated £80m in the initial introduction of
services including a £6m advertising splurge on TV, radio and national
newspapers. Some Dublin customers have already had their homes adapted
for the services.
