Industry rumours are rife that NTL Telewest is preparing to announce major job cuts in its 2006 first-quarter results which are due for release tomorrow.
Estimates range from 4,000 to 6,000 jobs, which could mean redundancies for a third of the company's 17,000 workforce.
NTL dismissed the reports as nothing more than rumour. "At the moment this is speculation and NTL Telewest will not comment on that," a company spokesman told vnunet.com. "It will make an announcement as part of the Q1 results tomorrow."
NTL has already outsourced some of its telephone support to call centres in South Africa and India, and may do the same with its remaining eight UK call centres.
