We have a large VM expansion going on at the moment locally (Allington, Maidstone), the centre of the works is 1km away as the crow flies and 1.2km following roads. 2 or 3 roads over from us has been cabled, although in some areas one side of a road has and the other hasn't - and looking at the planned roadworks for the next 12 months, all the VM planned works are now moving away from the areas that have been cabled, which includes us...
Wondering if its possible to see if our road is likely to be cabled, it doesn't look good with the already cabled roads nearby but no planned works that I can see. I have registered on the cable my street site.
Currently have Openreach FTTC as the only option at 20-25mbps down and 4-5mbps up.
Thanks in advance.
Just checking if there's any update regarding this, the Allington project seems to be coming to an end soon, the main welfare unit roadworks show an end date of the 20th Nov, and the last of the planned works (for the next 12 months) where cables are being layed are also ending in the next few weeks.
As you can see from the image below, the vast majority of Maidstone has VM coverage, with the main blackspot being the Allington area, which is now being expanded to - the green line area, maps haven't been updated yet. The Welfare unit for the project is located at the red dot for this project.
The red lined area is the last area in Maidstone with no planned expansion as far as I can tell, and you can guess where our house is!!!
If there's any news on this area being on the list for expansion that would be great, thanks
I was wondering if virgin media would become available to my side of the road. The other side has it though. Would you be able to tell me if it's likely that there would be cabling in my street done on my side of the road soon? I can give you more details in a private message if that would work.
