Unadopted Road Query

I noticed that at the end of my road houses are able to get 1gig with you guys now and currently my road doesn’t have the ability to have virgin services.

 

the distance is no more than 20-30m from the main road and was wondering whether it was possible to have this installed? I have registered for my cable my street in the past but have not heard anything since

 

Many Thanks,

Kyle

Hello

https://www.virginmedia.com/postcode-checker go here and register, then a spotter will be sent.

I take it if your talking about 1Gb then you must be in the Southampton area as currently that is the only place that is trailing that service.

Re: Unadopted Road Query

if the road is not adopted by the council it's very unlikely VM will even consider it.

Even if they do they will only cable it if its going to make them money. 30 meters would be a very large install cost How many houses are on the street that are not cabled?

I always thought that would be the case, there is 19 houses in my road currently.

I'll take a look, and I am. I didn't even know ISPs were even offering such a speed yet to consumers until yesterday
