Cable my street

Hi there,

 

My village is currently in the process of having fiber cable installed.

Im slightly confused as they have done pretty much the whole village next to mine, as well as the whole of the village surrounding my street but not my street which has a total of 10 houses on it.

The top of my street and the bottom of the street is done. Can you tell me why my street has been completely disregarded?

Re: Cable my street

Is it VM or Open Reach, just asking as I thought VM didn't do rural areas.

Hi, 

It's definitely virgin media. The temporary walkways all advertise it.

Re: Cable my street

Would it be possible for forum admin to look into it for me?

Asked on twitter but just told me to try the postcode checker that gives me a big fat nope, sorry, we have no plans to come anywhere near you.

Re: Cable my street

Could you consult with someone at your local town hall or Council/Councillor as someone there will have given the necessary permissions and see if your street was on the plans.

They might give you the correct person dealing with this at VM for you to contact.

PS.

Your not on a private road I assume?

Re: Cable my street

Contacting the council seems like a lot of hassle to be honest. I have seen the same sort of question asked on here before and an admin has contacted VM and then given an answer. Does that not happen anymore?

Don't think I'm on a private road. Like I say, the houses up and down the road are done but they have left a block of around 5 houses on either side of the road untouched. Just normal standard terraced houses with tarmac pavements.

Re: Cable my street

Well I would have wanted to know if VM had planned to do your street in the first place for you to know if the VM sub contractors had missed you out.
