Why are some postcodes partially covered by Virgin networks not included?
Virgin Media produced no OMR response to CDS concerning future deployment plans using their Project Lightning funding. BDUK have directed that as part of the state aid compliance we need to allow the economic growth of Virgin Media’s network, hence a buffer zone has been provided. These are areas CDS do not currently plan to invest in and residents here should contact Virgin for information on future connections. Under the National Broadband Scheme CDS is required to monitor progress of Virgin Media’s network development and if it becomes clear that in certain areas NGA speeds will not be provided CDS has the right, provided that funding is available, to bring these premises into the intervention area.
