Virgin media are installing cables in my area, Consett, County Durham but haven’t yet made it to my street. I made enquiries via twitter but just kept getting told to register my interest! 🤷🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️
I’d assume there’s a rollout plan rather than just letting the operatives dig where they fancy? On this basis are there any plans to install broadband services to [Removed], blackhill, consett, county durham, dh8 0bw?
any info/news - good or bad would be very much appreciated!!

Not from a customer's point of view - a Virgin Media roll out is more like the latter.
You might be lucky, but there's instances where the trenches and ducts have been laid past properties but there's no cable laid, and then the contractors leave site, never to return. And instances where individual properties or streets that you and I would consider a "no brainer" remain uncabled despite all adjacent roads being served.

Sorry to hear we're not on your street yet! As you know we'll be carrying out works in the area and will be trying to cable as much of the area as possible. I'll email the install teams to see if there are any plans, if I get a response for your street we'll get back to you here 🙂
I'm just going to private message you for more info.
Thanks for messaging again, I've been waiting for an update on this from various different departments and I'm afraid that it's bad news right now.
Unfortunately at the moment your side of the street isn't serviceable, and currently we have no plans in the pipeline for this side right now. I appreciate this isn't the news you were wanting, and I'm sorry for the disappointment. It looks like the cables are too far away from your address I'm afraid.
If anything changes in the future we'll let you know by sending a letter to the home to let you know we have been able to start work on your specific side of the street.
Thanks for your patience with this, and apologies for the bad news. Fingers crossed in the future we'll be able to cable everywhere!
