Virgin Media Only Doing Half My Street....why?

Hi all strange thing happening in my area.

Virgin media have decided to start work putting in ducts in my street but apparently on this phase are only doing half the street basically from the bottom of the street to half way. I am at the top of the street.

Anyway I can find out or see proposed virgin media drawings to see if / when the rest of the street will be done?

I asked the guys putting in the green duct but they didn't know and were all Romanian.

Re: Virgin Media Only Doing Half My Street....why?

Hi Jay

The teams have come back to provide the following info for me about this so far, but they have copied me in for more updates so I hope to hear more soon for you.

 

  • The cab location looks to be on the opposite side of the road to 152 on public property at the boundary of 123 and 121 (I believe – No house numbers on the drawing I’m looking at!). This location is subject to change dependant on LA (Local Authority) final approval!
  • We have certainly planned to conduct works to all properties on M******* North, inclusive of 152 (I believe also called M*** Lodge?). Whether all of these works are completed is very much dependent on conditions on the ground when works start.

Once I know more I'll let you know Smiley Happy

Re: Virgin Media Only Doing Half My Street....why?

the coax cables from street to property line can only go so far, so might need to add extra cabinet to cover your address and others around you..

Re: Virgin Media Only Doing Half My Street....why?

Not strange at all. We have 2 cabinets in our road. The feed to one box came in from one end, & the ducting put in to half the road. A couple of weeks later they had made their way down an adjacent road & put the feed in to the other box from the other end, along with the ducting to the remaining houses.

It depends what type of build they are using as to how long it will take. Additions to the older HFC network will be on in a few weeks. The new all fibre build is usually considerably longer.
