Virgin Media looking to expand

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

There are plenty of places around the UK where BT feels investment in broadband is not practical, but cable broadband provider Virgin Media sees this not just as a challenge but also as a great opportunity.

Virgin Media will be talking to power companies with a view to using the poles that they use to deliver electricity to homes all around the country and it is the rural areas that are of interest to Virgin Media.

The company is getting ready for the government’s big industry meet up.

Money is not going to be forthcoming for the roll out of fibre broadband but they have not considered this method yet.

Currently a trial is being held in a small village in Berkshire where Virgin Media has set up a couple of poles in centre of the village and these feed straight into twenty five homes.
