Can I petition VM to lay cables in my street?

Joining in

I’m moving house soon, and VM is not available in my new street. Nobody offers fibre, infact. There is VM fibre in a neighbouring street around 100m away. The house and street is not new. It’s around 30 years old. Is there any way I can contact VM to lay fibre cables and offer it to my street? They’d be the first fibre in there, so I’d imagine half the street would join.

If it’s a private road it would be a no go. VM might consider it if they got a large enough number of new users signed up before they started work, otherwise it would not be cost justifiable.

What about Altnets?  Or get together and try for a BDUK Voucher as a collective?  Failing that, there is always FTTPoD, but it's expensive !!
