Virgin Media Postcode Checker Wrong?

Hi,

 

I just moved into a new house and I’m checking the broadband availability. I’ve checked SamKnows and other sites that pull OpenReach data which all say my exchange support virgin media fibre however the virgin media website’s own postcode checker says it’s unavailable. 

Can anyone help identify what’s going on please?

Re: Virgin Media Postcode Checker Wrong?

Apologies. I just meant they pull data about what broadband services are available in my postcode. They all say virgin media is available. I don’t know exactly where their data comes from - I assumed it was OpenReach since they seem to be some kind of gatekeeper of infrastructure - , I just know it doesn’t match the virgin media postcode checker and wondered why there was a discrepancy. I’m very sorry my lack of technical understanding is an issue.

Re: Virgin Media Postcode Checker Wrong?

openreach have absolutely nothing to do with viring, and are certainly not the "gatekeeper" of any infrastructure other than their own.

samknows data can be wrong.
