Expansion plans

Hi,
I am wondering if anyone can provide some details as to when virgin will expand into the Skelmersdale area? Back in January the checker used to say 'we're on our way...' but now it says 'expanding our network'. However, if you register your interest it changes to 'we're on our way!' and there are 599 people who have registered their interest.

Sorry if this question seems redundant but I just can't wait for virgin to expand as right now we're stuck on an unstable and slow bt connection (we've had 6 engineers since the start of the year with a 7th booked, so to say we're fed up with bt is an understatement). Also, there is virgin media near to Skelmersdale (Wigan and st.helens to name two places).

Re: Expansion plans

hiya @SkylarRuby welcome to the virginmedia community forum, it will be around 4+ days for the forum admin to reply, and they'll ask the construction/teams involved in project lightning on possible time scale. look at -> http://maps.thinkbroadband.com/#!lat=53.549192505347634&lng=-2.765046757580536&zoom=14&type=terrain&... virginmedia is rather close to the area, but a lot of work is required to get a area online months of planning, cost etc...

Re: Expansion plans

@paultechy thank you for the information, I imagine it'll be a while before/if we're connected but it'll be nice to have some information, I didn't know about the think broadband map.
