Check availability

Hi, 

 

Sorry if this has been posted in the wrong section, but I am looking to cut ties with Bt and my contract is up in November. I have been constantly keeping an eye out for virgin media coming to my area (postcode Bt679bt)

I am aware it is being done in the next town from mine but I just wanted to know if there are any plans to roll out to my postcode before November before having to commit to either Bt or sky again for another 18 months

 

Thanks

Re: Check availability

the time it takes to cable and make service to a street is months, so you would have already seen signs of any work being done/prepared for it to be live by november.

you could check your local councils planning dept website to see if any applications have been made to allow the required digging.

Re: Check availability

There is no VM presence in your immediate vicinity so you should not expect anything for quite some time.

Re: Check availability

Any you can recommend? BT sport is really important to me as my main reason for having a TV package is to watch the Ufc.

Re: Check availability

you don't have to have your TV and internet from the same company, shop around.

Re: Check availability

TalkTalk TV and Sky customers can also get BT Sport.
