Slowest road in the UK

Hi

The slowest road referred to in the uk has Virgin infrastructure read to serve it.  Half the road is live.  How do we get you to serve the rest of the street.  I have put outside my house. You have installed the pull ropes but it’s 350 m from the live cabinet.  It needs a network upgrade to serve the rest of the road. 

Bt open reach are out every day, but we still can’t get the proper reaction from Virgin.  You have had 6 failed attempts at my property now. A tap bank in the pit would open up 250 houses from the last cabinet.

Please someone sort it out and escalate the upgrade...

Re: Slowest road in the UK

it will only be done if its profitable. If its not going to make VM money they won't do it.

unlike BT that has to service the whole of the UK VM is an private US company.

Re: Slowest road in the UK

Who’s going to pay for it? Are you aware of installation costs?

It’s half installed already! The Civils work is done.  It just needs cabling.

Re: Slowest road in the UK

still has to be worth while for the shareholders.
If its not it will end up with the other 100's of abandoned builds that went over budget
