Re: Virgin media expansion plans changed?

Hi Tibr, 

Thanks for your patience whilst I looked in to this for you. 

The team have come back to me to advise that there are no plans for your property to go active as it stands. Work was abandoned due to costs. This may be looked at again in the future however it won't be until atleast 2020 now. 

Apologies.

Re: Virgin media expansion plans changed?

Thanks v much Kath

Its a real shame if they have related the right news as the neighbourhood was fully cabled around 9 months ago and the nearest (virgin branded) cabinet is around 8 metres across the road from my property.

There were even 3 virgin chaps stood next to it a week ago. I wonder what they will do with all the fibre cable they have rolled out?

Regards

Tim

Re: Virgin media expansion plans changed?

Hi Tubbydogs,

 

Thank you for providing your postcode.

 

I have enquired with our planning team and they have informed me that we are planning on providing service to the Lancaster area as part of our expansion plans.

 

We don't have any definite dates yet for when this will take place but they have advised that there may be some activity in your area in the coming months.

 

Thanks,

Re: Virgin media expansion plans changed?

 

There's quite a few streets around Hala being dug up with Virgin Media signs on display.  You need planning permission to dig up the streets, so someone in Virgin Media must have submitted the planning applications weeks ago. Do we know the extent of this roll out?

The website still says "service unavailable in your area" for me whereas previously it'd stated there was an expansion plan at work in my area.

Looks like you're in luck come August/September according to the county council website.
