We operate broadband communications networks in 14 countries principally located in Europe operating under the brands UPC, Unitymedia (Germany), and Telenet (Belgium), VTR (Chile), and AUSTAR (Australia). Liberty Global’s operations also include significant media and programming businesses such as Chellomedia, a world class multimedia content provider based in Europe, as well as interests in content businesses in each of our regional markets.

Through the efforts of 20,000 employees worldwide, Liberty Global connects 17.9 million customers to the world of information, communications, and entertainment. As of September 30, 2011, Liberty Global’s networks passed approximately 32.0 million homes and served more than 29.3 million Revenue Generating Units (RGUs), including approximately 16.9 million video subscribers, of which 9.0 million were digital cable and Direct-to-Home (DTH) satellite subscribers, 7.2 million broadband internet subscribers, and 5.2 million voice subscribers.

In the converging world of broadband video, voice and internet, Liberty Global is at the forefront in driving technological innovation to deliver transformational new products and advanced services that are “simply for everyone”. Our affiliate operations are differentiated by the powerful combination of Liberty Global's global scale, robust network infrastructure, and centralized technology platforms, together with unparalleled local-level content and service expertise.

Liberty Global has a representative office to the European Union Institutions in Brussels. We use this as a base for ongoing dialogue to the European Commission, Members of the European Parliament, and the EU competition authority on major regulatory and public policy issues we face, and in order to manage our relationships with key EU trade associations.
