Virgin broadband on native FTTP site?


[link to this post]
 
The sales person at the development on which I'm buying my new house suggested that I might be able to get an internet connection from Virgin on the native FTTP line which will be installed to the house which I'm buying. Is this the case? Looks like they do broadband only at 50MB which would work out cheaper than paying BT for broadband and a phone line (which I wouldn't use).

Depends on who is actually providing the FTTP itself.

If this is an Openreach FTTP site, then Virgin Media do not use the openreach network, but some FTTP areas are also in the Virgin Media footprint.

Virgin Media has a small amount of its own FTTP too, much much smaller than the traditional cable broadband footprint.

So it all depends on exactly where you are talking about, i.e. need a postcode.

Not sure any of the postcodes on the site are in many databases yet, but I think NN13 6GA or GB are at least in the Royal Mail DB now; my actual postcode will be NN13 6GF.

Doesn't look like Virgin media even serve Brackley. Never mind.
