By the way Cable and Wireless worldwide would be broken up, if Virgin Media was to acquire it, it would only be the UK arm and it could boost Virgin Media Business and will be the 2nd largest telecoms provider in the UK.
Anyway the way things are looking, all of them companies will go down the tubes eventually and be swallowed up by European telecoms giants or private equity firms that is how privatisation and free enterprise is in this country.
