Virgin Media Cable My Street Email Confiming Rollout


[link to this post]
 
Just received an email from Virgin Media indicating that they have added my postcode to their rollout plan. As I am currently on a sub 1.5 Mbps line with no immediate hope of BT FTTC, this is really good news. However no timescale has been given on when this may happen. Basically can anyone advise on how long I have to wait before the rollout happens?

Genuinely a piece of string. This just means that they have planned your postcode. I have postcodes near me that have been planned and aren't going to be built to for years.

If your address is a public road it shouldn't be too long.

Well considering we were on the BT Commercial rollout for about 5 years, and have just been removed due to "issues" we havn't been included in the BDUK process so far. So any news is good news I suppose.

I got an email from them today as well. Nothing as specific as adding my postcode, just something vague about "Your neighbourhood looks good, we're looking to make it even better". So nothing confirmed or denied then really.

I received the same email yesterday. I checked the Where and When checker shortly after and BT have updated my area from Under Review to being in the "Design Stages", so I wonder if Virgin have now decided to look at coming to this area to compete.

I think it was a generic email to everyone who registered. I got one yesterday basically saying, tell everyone in your area if you want us to come.

Virgin are unlikely to roll out into areas that are in BT plans.

They are quite happy to deploy to areas that already have FTTC. They've done it to about 20,000 premises so far in this city alone.

They're going to find it hard to NOT do this.

With the contracts currently in place, superfast coverage is going to hit 95-96%. If VM want to grow their coverage by something like 15% they've *got* to overlap coverage for most of it.
