Community representation

I'm representing a group of residents on an estate in a virgin cabled area but hasn't had your cables installed, we are all suffering with <4mb speeds at the moment from being on openreach copper only connections and are looking to get the estate wired up properly by yourselves. I was wondering if there was someone I could send my list of expressions of interest to and get updates from? (I've got details of 70 properties out of the 200 on the estate, still got some door knocking to do...)

Re: Community representation

Re: Community representation

Hi mattcee233, 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the Community 🙂 

We wouldn't be able to take interest unless it's come from that person their self. Each home interested would need to register their details via Cable My Street. 

I can check to see if there are any current plans though. 

I have sent you a private message regarding this and will investigate further once I receive your reply. Just click on the little plum envelope at the top right hand side of the page to access your inbox.
Speak soon,

Re: Community representation

Hi mattcee233, 

Thanks for your patience whilst I waited to hear back from the team. 

They have now come back and advised the following: I believe the reason the cables weren’t installed is due to the street not being publicly maintainable, which would mean a build couldn’t progress on this street. There are currently no plans to install this address and after a quick draft desktop measurement I estimate this would come over our budget.

Apologies but there is no plans to come to your street. 

Thanks.
