CASHING IN: The REGISTER’s Kelly Fiveash reports Virgin Media spent US$84.8M “on marketing costs in the telco's first quarter" which ended March 31. The company ran “TV, print, online and billboard ads featuring” Gold Medal-winning sprinter Usain Bolt and Virgin Group Founder Richard Branson. Virgin Media said that the extra publicity spend “paid off with the ISP adding the most quarterly net customers in two years” (THEREGISTER.co.uk, 4/25).
