With DOCSIS more of local network is shared with other users, so if you are the only one connected then it as good as it ever get.

Or put another way if your street has a few Internet archivists who also share content in time the segment will get busier, the first clues are changes in latency and latter

It's strange Virgin are still expanding their copper network.

Our area had Virgin laying the cables in the street in a similar situation where it was broadband/tv only, no phone line (no copper installed, VoIP on the Hub 3 not enabled).

It appears to just be a standard coax install which is strange but at first it was the same also where it was 200mb at launch however recently the 300mb appears to be available in York.


The areas tend to be enabled for broadband and TV first with copper telephony coming shortly after. You ordered before they had finished enabling telephony.

Each fibre virtual hub feeds 3,000 homes. Unless VM are doing a major infill of an existing area they are going to deliver coaxial - hybrid nodes are used per 500 premises passed.

The 200Mb only was due to restrictions at the York hubsite feeding existing and new areas.

Virgin being installed on Saturday for me, BB and TV only, however if was to order now it would be with a phone line, no option without if signing up??? Speaking with the local installer, the phoneline option was hardware change in the grey cabs and that everything runs down the the fibre, BB,TV and phone. Of course this is the brand new network currently being rolled out and the new spec ??

Well after the tubing was dug in mid February, yesterday I spotted them blowing fibre to one of the new small distribution cabinets....
