Hi John.

Virgin are pretty much covering the whole of Thanet and are currently working on the A254 Margate Road. There are permits in for works on the western side of the A254 and you can keep tabs on this by keeping an eye on www.roadworks.org

CLOKent should be able to provide you some assistance as he/she is involved with the Virgin Media liaison.

Hi John2005, welcome to the forums, nice to see another local on here.

Are you sure Clements Road has not been cabled* yet, they've done Pysons Road, Greenfield and neighbouring roads. Have a look in the pavement for recent works specifically the VM Toby covers outside/between each house.

As Zico stated they are pretty much doing all of Thanet,  for further info read this post.

*They are installing fibre not cables, so they've put in the tube's but not necessarily yet installed the fibres.

PS keep an eye on Roadworks.org and change the date period from today.

It appears that VM have already been down part of Clements Road already (From 161 to Margate Road.) and are planning to finish off the other section at a later date (From o/s 26 all the way round to junction of Margate Road.).
Keep an eye out on Roadworks.org for the new permit from VM for the remaining works.

No not yet, there still seems to be a lot of work to do, the main cabinets haven't been installed yet - they still have temporary yellow tops on the prepared bases. I reckon another couple of months at least.

It's gone live in parts of Garlinge/Westbrook.

Wonder how long for my area, Wimpy estate near St Georges School? I'll have to take a look and see if our main cabinet has been installed, haven't seen any fibre being installed either.

As per my post on TBB, the roadworks started in May so it's a gradual process to switch on those sectors which have been cabled. Long way to go yet to complete the planned cover of Thanet.

All this digging and roadworks traffic congestion over the last 2 months Virgin Media has missed my location by 1.1 Km all the work seemed to stop when it came close to our semi rural village, so VM only covers densely populated areas  :(

Virgin are far from finished in Thanet. The works started in May and they have a lot more areas to cover.

CLO's post here states a few locations that aren't on the current rollout but that's not to say they will never be included if enough interest is registered for the service (cable my street).

I think I had better comment here, before confusion occurs.

N*Star's village is in Northern Ireland and not on the Isle of Thanet, Kent, England.  :)

No point in making another thread VM coming to Bangor N.I which it has as shown on the Map outlined in red and my village marked by the blue X, was wondering if Zico had any info whether VM plan to install this in my area and have placed a interest on their Web Site.

Yes, sorry, I've just realised that after going back in the thread :doh:.

Sorry NewtronStar, I don't work for Virgin Media so have no idea of the rollouts outside of Kent. I only know certain information in Kent due to my employment elsewhere.

No worries Zico any info is welcome it's a bit like me asking BlackSheep to map out my D-SIDE he is not privy to this info, I know my D-SIDE very well 1KM with 10 footpath joints each one nearly 100 meters apart to PCP cabinet.
