Had a few fun days with a VM cabinet issue at work. Thankfully things went well and in the end everybody was happy (I think).

Come on VM, put a fibre cab outside my house, I would love you for it  :D

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.

If VM have duct down the B20 they'll very likely build to that area. If they don't and the fibre path is going down the B20 could also be good. No reason why they wouldn't take that route as long as the costs aren't significantly different from taking the A2 all the way. Sometimes taking 'B' roads is less disruptive than A roads. On the flip side they may also have narrow or congested pavements requiring the narrow trench to go into the carriageway a lot which quickly gets expensive.

I have no idea if you can monitor roadworks but keep an eye on them if possible. They have to get fibre from Belfast to Bangor somehow and will certainly be taking in Holywood if they haven't already built there. If they do Helen's Bay you're in luck I think.

This village built outside Leeds might give you some hope. If they are going through villages they can and do build to them - makes a few quid off the long trek in between population centres.

All the VM work has come to a end on the B20 route for this year 2017 and WEB roadworks info is very limited here, Will be keeping a keen eye for any more VM action in the new year.

I agree if they do Helen's Bay it's looking good and I'm not looking for the high end rate of 300Mbps 70-80Mbps would do me just fine and can't see away for Openreach to build a FTTC & PCP cabinet closer to my premises in the next 15 years.

Not that I'm aware of, and the two hub cabinets I've passed recently (St George's and Pysons Rd) haven't been installed yet. So very unlikely to be in January.

I've not heard anything, and our hub cabinet opposite the Harvester has not yet been installed, once that goes in it should be around 4 to 5 weeks I think.

Just joining in the thread to stay informed.

Patiently waiting for a work crew to arrive on the Eastern Esplanade.

Will be ordering as soon as it's live!

The hub cabinet has been installed in Pysons Road, so looks like it's getting closer for that area.

Don't think my hub cabinet  outside the Asda superstore has yet been installed though :-( Although haven't been past that way for a few weeks.

That's the ones I was talking about by the ASDA roundabout opposite KFC and The David Copperfield (Harvester) both now covered in graffiti.

So the yellow cover has gone, and there's now a large cabinet instead? As I think there was some small cabinets there as well.

Yup if I remember correctly there is a large grey cabinet and a small grey one next to it.
