The area codes are billing areas, & are based on either individual franchises or groups of franchises that were absorbed into the network over time.
Ex NTL is area 31.
Also I can see a lot of people in Dorchester & Lyme Regis getting very excited that they might be in line for VM services. While Dorchester was offered along with Weymouth & Bridport in the 1990s, the franchise never picked up any interest, so was withdrawn by the Cable Authority. Lyme Regis was never in any cable build plan, has no core network (the nearest hub is Exeter) so is unlikely to see a service anytime soon.
