Cable my street

So I've been waiting patiently for work to start in my village after this article HERE stated fibre was to be rolled out in my area. Work started a short time ago, so I fired off an email to try and find out what packages are going to be available and when they are expected to arrive. Unfortunately, the chap who contacted me back said that my property isn't going to be included in the rollout? Even superfaststaffordshire has my property marked as "existing and planned commercial coverage" I'm hoping someone can perhaps enlighten me further? I have to say I'm somewhat disappointed Smiley Sad

My postcode is ST71SR.

Thanks

Re: Cable my street

What you have to bear in mind is VM build their own network. They do not use BT or any other company's infrastructure.

The map does not specifically state "Virgin Media", so while there are expansion plans for Talke/Talke Pitts, someone else (most likely BT Fibre) may arrive first.

Re: Cable my street

Hi thatdaveguy,

 

Thanks for your post and it's great to hear that you are looking at having Virgin Media installed.

 

As much as we would love to be able to install everybody, sometimes it's just not possible. There are some areas where some streets have been cabled and others haven't so your issue isn't as uncommon as you'd think. 

 

We already have a full 2018 roll out planned as well as most of 2019 for new areas and New Builds too but we won't be doing any more in-filling now. 

 

I can double check to see if your area is in the plans for this year although I'll need some information from you. I have sent you a private message requesting some information. Just click on the little plum envelope at the top right hand side of the page to access your inbox.

 

Thanks,
