I think you may have missed the point of my post.
Most of the properties around me are owned by the same housing provider, the whole town is having cables laid.
They have laid cables all around my small road, literally, the house right next to min on the side, separated by just the garden fence had had cables laid (Different road) It is the same the other side, opposite and behind, separated by a garden, yet they have had cables laid, they went down every road around me, big and small, it is like they forgot to do out small bit of road.
They are still in the town cabling the roads, they have just moved on from my small area - The one place in my little area they did not cable was my small road. (Did I mention they didn't cable my small road yet??)
Like I said the houses all around belong to the same supplier and the works were all approved - I have checked
And for the record I and many of my neighbours already expressed an interest over a year ago when it was suggested that Virgin Media would cable our town.
In my view someone has messed up somewhere.
OH and a quick P.S. The small block on 9 flats is already set up with cable runs into the properties for Sky, telephone and cable etc. - Someone had the foresight to put them in when the block was built, all it would need is for Virgin Media to continue laying the cable from the property next door to the block of flats, not even a 10 meter run I would say
