The contract mobile base increased by 28,900 in the quarter for Virgin Mobile, to reach 1.7m.
Quad play penetration - involving customers taking TV, landline, broadband and mobile from Virgin - increased to around 15.6%
Neil Berkett, the chief executive of Virgin Media, said: "This has been a quarter where continued strong demand for superfast broadband and TiVo has led to lower churn and meaningful cable customer growth.
"Combined with progress in our business division, we have again delivered solid financial progress with continued revenue and OCF growth, translating into strong Free Cash Flow and shareholder returns."
