I own a flat in a block of 24 flats in Fishponds, Bristol. All flats are privately owned, with a number rented.
The street is a cul-de-sac in a suburb surrouded everywhere with mega-fast broadband. Even the four houses at the end of the street ( about 55m ) which link to the main road.
We have <20mbps and Openreach not interested/planning to upgrade.
I am sure its is an intelligent business decision to bring Virgin to the flats as you will have probably have 24 instant sign ups. Plus planning is in for a further development of flats 20m further on.
My question is , who do I need to talk to so that I get get this moving, or at least looked at ? We are desperate to get out the 'black and white' days !
no, but it's the standard response you'll get regarding any expansion. virgin reps have already stated plans are set for at least 2020, with little to no "in-fill" taking place (in-fill is where network is in place but a street or streets don't have network).
no point discussing openreach here as it's a totally different business model with legal obligations. with openreach you're limited to how far away from the street cabinet you are, and whether the exchange and cabinet are fibre enabled.
