VM is already here in my town and has been for years. The annoying thing is we are on a new development and vm cables run right past the estate being at the bottom of the road that enters the estate. Why ever the developer did not get them to lay cables at the same time is beyond me. I have tried to speak to vm about it as there are plenty of houses that they would probably pick up but they just don't seem remotely interested, considering the service is already here surely this would be an easy way to pick up some more customers but it seems not to be ::)

The build in Bangor is in progress and has been since at least January.

Interesting we don't have roadworks.org like you have on the mainland have looked for something similar for here but can't find one on the NET

Only seems to show road/lane closures, and a few other minor works.

I can confirm that Virgin Media is coming to Thanet (I do work for them) - we start in Garlinge next Monday and rollout the rest of Thanet over the next 18 months. An aggressive plan is in place to get the WHOLE of Thanet in Fibre to the premise network by August 2018.

Look out for information events being held in the area and men spraying biodegradable paint marking the paths. They will also be working with big orange barriers and boards saying 'Virgin Media'.. so hopefully won't be hard to spot!!

There will also be introductory offers and you register your interest in advance.

Thanks! :)

There are roadworks scheduled for this week in the Hartsdown area, nothing showing for Garlinge yet though.

Welcome CLOKent. Good to have somebody direct from VM participating on the forum.

There are roadworks scheduled for this week in the Hartsdown area, nothing showing for Garlinge yet though.
I think that the area is the Garlinge electoral ward. Still, first permits starting tomorrow, plenty more to come!
