Cable my street

There are around 200 houses in the estate.

 

The main street at the bottom, and all the houses surrounding us can receive virgin media. The estate was built around 10 years ago and i believe it all would have had virgin installed at the same time. The fastest speeds we can get currently on the BT lines are around 45Mbps. Now, this is no good for 4k streaming from places like Netflix, Prime, Disney+ etc. I think in 2020 this is unacceptable and i know its no fault of virgin media what so ever. I just think it would be worth sending engineers out to check... 

1. If the lines are actually here and just not reported on the system properly as "not available"   
3. If its possible to run the lines up the street to cover these 200 houses, which are all 3-5 bed homes. As you will understand in 2020 46Mbps is just not sufficient in a 4 bed home with modern tech. 

I have spoke to neighbours around the street and many of them are frustrated also, that a lot of us have gone out and bought expensive 4k tv's and cant stream and 4k content. Many are willing to switch to a faster provider if it becomes available. Many of us can cancel out current contracts instantly as we are below the minimum guaranteed download rates for the providers. The providers know we won't cancel because they know that they are the quickest we can get in this area.

Re: Cable my street

45mb is more than enough to stream in 4K.
