Virgin FTTC


[link to this post]
 
Have Virgin considered using FTTC to extend their coverage. Bundling TV & HS Broadband & Telephone at the righ price could be attractive and would enable Virgin to grow their market share. Currently the only way to grow their revenues is to up sell to existing customers

Virgin are expanding their HFC network to some extent, in part by infilling.

They have also done a trial FTTH using electricity poles to carry the fibre and participated in a trial of rural FTTC in cooperation with Vtesse.

Virgins trial with poles to bring FTTH in Wolverhampton was announced in the news then disapeared with nothing more said about the progress/completion of the trial.

they did one in Wales that was delivered. http://www.v3.co.uk/v3/news/2267107/virgin-start-ele...

It mentions Woolhampton as another trial location - confusion of geography ?

McNicks are recruiting jointers, cablers, installers and managers at the moment for their Virgin contract so something is up.

Yes the lack of any areas being infilled. The only very tiny amounts of infiling is where builders are subsidising it on new estates in the Virgin Cable areas but very few builders are doing this. THere is certainly no general infiling going on

Evidence ?

http://pressoffice.virginmedia.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=2...

says "As well as investing in the expansion of its network through traditional underground cable building work"

are they lying ? can you prove it ? have you checked every corner of every Virgin Media area ?

You should take your evidence to the SEC and others, as regulatory financial statements by Virgin include things like "Strong growth was also driven by the expansion of our unique fibre optic network as during the quarter, we passed 72,000 further homes."

it would be a criminal offence to mislead the market with statements like that if untrue.
