Only thing I can really suggest is sending CLOKent a PM on here, he/she works for VM and I'm sure CLO stands for customer liasion officer  ;)

@afy65 It looks like they did Princess Margaret Avenue last August - the works are actually captured on Google Street View, so I would have thought they'd done The Ridings. Easy way to tell is have a look in the pavement, is there a fresh strip of tarmac about 12" wide, and plastic covers outside each house with Virgin on them, if not then for some reason they haven't installed down there.

@craigv That does sound odd, have they done both Whitfield Ave & Camden Rd? Have you considered using Three, you're about 500m from a mast and they do unlimited data (possibly throttled after 1TB) for 20 a month - I get 100/30Mbps. So long as you don't need a public IP and CGNat doesn't affect any games you might play it may be a suitable alternative.

@Yokomoko Sounds like the tube they blow the fibre through is crushed/damaged - I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't bother fixing it if it only affects one property - may be considered too costly.

Ronski, thanks for putting so much effort into your reply :-)

I already did that before my slight moan ;-) hopefully will hear something back, but I imagine it's not the most important thing to them.

They've done Camden Rd, but I don't think they've done Whitfield Ave either - it's almost like they made it so far up Northdown Hill and then stopped :)

I hadn't really seriously considered a mobile connection, but 20 for unlimited is decent! I'll have a closer look into that :) I do need a static IP for work, but perhaps something to consider alongside the FTTC for the time being - if I can get the Mrs' Approval!

Thanks again for your feedback :)

Thanks for that, Sir :) I shall do my research!

Just to return the final piece of the puzzle on VM for me, CLOKent did respond today and say that our road, and therefore probably also Whitfield Ave & Victoria Ave come under the Millmead area, and that's why they haven't been done yet - sad times!

Best bet is to PM CLOKent.
