Specs for new roll out


[link to this post]
 
I noticed today that virgin have started cable laying in our area and checking on their website it appears that there service will be forth coming in my postcode.

Does anybody know what technology they will be installing in new areas going forwards?

I read that Virgin are rolling out FTTP, however maybe they are still installing the old coaxial system?

As mentioned above, infill streets will link to existing coaxial network, new networks however should be fttp but then converted to coaxial at the premises.

Thanks mlmclaren,

No it is completely new to the town, and it seems they are doing complete coverage. Nearest service from Virgin is in another town about 3 miles away.

They are installing light grey / white street cabinets, not sure if this is of any relevance? Typically I have always seen green.

If the VM checker is saying everything is available, apart from a copper voice circuit, does this mean it's FTTP?

Virgin have just cabled my friends street, which is in an existing franchise area.

All the new VM cabs are grey now.

Looks like they don't bother painting them.

They're that colour for a reason, it's not the colour of the metal. Light colours reflect heat. Dark ones absorb it.

Depends. Could be the checker, could be no capacity available on the existing copper MSAN.

Generally if they are deploying infill it'll be HFC. There's no point in building a 5000 premises fibre hub to serve a couple of streets.
