Will I never get Virgin fibre?

My Flat had an old Cable & Wireless box when I moved in five years ago, I thought that I be able to get either Virgin or BT fibre broadband.Sadly this is not so and my ADSL download is around 4.5 Mbits/s.

Most of the properties in my street have access to Virgin Fibre broadband, but something like 14 flats are not able to get it. It seems that BT/Openreach are not interested in providing Fibre broadband to only a few customers.

Mine is connected via an old Nynex box!
What does it say when you input your address ? Have you called and asked ?
Are the 14 flats all above the first floor ?
There may be "contention" issues of course which may mean they have reached the maximum number of subscribers for that location/equipment

The online search only shows Virgin Services as unavailable and sign up to get information should services become available. That was about five years ago, still no response.

most likely there are no plans to provide service to your property then.
