How to get onto FTTP trial?

Up to speed

How does one get onto the FTTP trial? I am interested in Fibre and wouldn't mind showcasing my install if Virgin need any media coverage. Is there anywhere I can sign up?

The XGS-PON trials are only running in 7 specific areas where new network is live. Everywhere else the FTTP connections are currently running RFoG (coax) services in the home, otherwise V360/TiVO TV kit cannot operate.

I believe that there are no trials available now. My expectation is that when XGS-PON is nearing readiness for rollout, probably in 2024, then a trial will be needed for the IP STB.
