1993 - International CableTel (ntl's predecessor) was founded by Barclay Knapp, CEO, and George Blumenthal, Chairman. The company acquired the interests of Insight UK's cable systems comprising about one million homes under franchise in cities such as Glasgow, Cardiff, Newport and Guildford.

1995 - CableTel acquired new franchises in Northern Ireland, and Glamorgan and Gwent, increasing the number of homes and businesses within ntl franchises to 2.3 million.

In 2002, NTL filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization and emerged the following year.
