Openreach installing VM fibre

I live on a new build estate, with only Openreach installed internet since build.  This last few weeks we have had A lot of Openreach engineers in the street installing something in all the ducts and every so often, Virgin Media engineers talking with them and doing some work in the same ducts.  
is this now the way VM install so they don’t dig the street up again? What looks like a new cabinet has been installed at the start of the estate next to some existing VM cabinets for another estate.  

Is there anyway to find out if this VM installing fibre? Because it is needed and way overdue! 👍

Possibly. We are using BT ducts now. If you would like to send me a private message with your address details I can take a look to see if there are plans

Any idea on timescale as to how long after they finish before the service is available?

Re: Openreach installing VM fibre

At least a year since we first started.

it’s not everywhere but it’s growing. They are known as P.I.A. Networks which if I recall correctly is Public Infrastructure Access. We fit our tap plates or FTTP points  into their chambers and use their ducts to serve new customers
