Cable my street

I live in sk165db area of Cheshire,although a lot of this area has been cabled this year I would like to know if ALL of this area is being cabled,they've got to the bottom of my street but then stopped and moved else where,it's really confusing to be so close butter so far away..

Re: Cable my street

Two things to consider.

1) VM do not install in un-adopted roads. If the road is still maintained privately then wayleave must be obtained from the owner.

2) If the expansion is HFC (planned at original 1990s build but never completed) & not Fibre only then there is a finite capacity for expansion. To bulid Fibre into new areas requires a different ducting system & would be planned seperately.

Then it may be 2 above.

ie. They have built out the original plan to its full extent & the build is now at capacity. Any more expansion would come under a new project. You will just have to register & hope.

Re: Cable my street

Hi bigbaddom,

 

As much as we would love to be able to install everybody, sometimes it's just not possible. 

 

Checking your postcode, your street isn't yet in our expansion plans. 

 

The good news is you can register your interest via Cable My Street here: Cable My Street

 

Get any neighbours who may also be interested to register on the same link and this will give you more of a chance of getting installed with our Project Lightning Smiley Happy

 

Hope that helps. 

 

Thanks,
