The Today programme's Friday Boss is Mark Heraghty managing director of Virgin Media Business.

Virgin Media Business provides fixed and mobile telephone, television and broadband internet services to businesses and consumers.

It's executive office is in New York City and its operational headquarters are in Hook, Hampshire, in the UK.

Speaking to Today business presenter Simon Jack, Mr Heraghty said that the success of Virgin Media is partly down the the large investments in laying information cables.

"Virgin Media has invested about £13bn in digging up the streets of the UK... but for that investment you get a huge superfast network that can be very effectively utilised in the public sector and in the private sector," he explained.

"We have an asset base in the investment that we have made that is very difficult to replicate" he said, citing the use of the network as benefiting technology in schools and hospitals.
