Interestingly on the DSL Checker site it shows im on Cab 18 and that FTTP on Demand is Available



Welcome Supernoodles.

Further to Ronski's post, the DSL checker is only for services that are provided over the Openreach network so you won't be able to get any details of Virgin's network update.

It probably won't be long before your area is enabled as Virgin want to get sectors lit up and running asap to get the return on investment.

Been watching this thread for quite a while... My cabinet is 27 (Lister Road near the hospital) and have been waiting for any Virgin roadworks, but haven't seen any! Anyone got any idea if this cabinet is even planned?!

I watch out on https://v6.roadworks.org/ for roadworks which show up as being for Virgin Media, you may need to change the time period to 12 months for a longer view.

Welcome to the forums DrDaveDeath,

VM are doing pretty much all of Thanet, see this post for more detail. So I should think its only a matter of time.

By the way it's not based on cabinet areas, although they will probably have taken into account what other services are available in the area.

Noticed some new work has popped up on roadworks.org in Martins Close the next road over from me it says "To complete interim to perm work." not sure what that means.

Also along pysons road there's "To complete remedial work." and in a few other roads that were already done there are more "To complete interim to perm work" if anyone know's what that mean's

I'm pretty sure that it just means finishing off a temporary surface finish to a permanent finish. I've often seen those notices when OR has been doing work.

PS seems to be taking ages to go live, considering the my main hub cabinet was installed late January.

I can confirm that 'interim to perm' is where a temporary reinstatement is made to a permanent finish. Remedial work is where a defect has been identified with the permanent reinstatement (either by Virgin or the highway authority) and this is made good.

Irrespective of the interim to perm or remedial civils work, if the fibre is in place and the cabinets sited, I would imagine that the Virgin network guys are working away in the background to get areas lit up as fast as they can.

Are you sure it isn't where a permanent reinstatement is made to a temporary finish?  ;)

Yes I've seen some very poor re-instatement by utilities and in fact contractors working for Kent Highways.

On a different note I am yet to see any roadworks scheduled this year for Crow Hill, they've worked round the Chessboard area and other roads including Stone Gardens and Stone Road including Thanet Close I believe but nothing yet for Crow Hill.

Woke up this morning to the sound of virgin (NPS) doing something outside my flat went onto roadworks.org and it says Description: To clear 2 x blockages - customer service not sure what they mean by that and apparently they are on pysons for another blockage it says "customer out of service" which doesn't make much sense since you cant even order on pysons road yet

I saw that and thought it odd, I think they may get a permit quicker by stating customer out of service, so perhaps they are bending the rules a bit to speed things up.
