Virgin Media extending cable TV and broadband to link 3,000 premises in Wembley

Wednesday, November 22nd 2017

Virgin Media will be expanding its network to reach Wembley (North West London), to supply its cable TV and ultrafast broadband services to nearly 3,000 homes and businesses here, under its £3 billion Project Lightning roll-out. Virgin Media aims to complete this work by the end of next year. They intend to discuss the work by holding a community event on the coming 23rd November (Thursday) at the Park Lane Primary School, from 18:00 to 20:00 pm.


Virgin Media's Regional Director, Maurice Daw, explained that by expanding their network to reach thousands more homes and businesses in Wembley, they are making a digital hotspot out of the area, where families can soon benefit from a service both reliable and 17 times faster than the local average.


Their Project Lightning targets an additional 4 million premises across the UK. By the end of 2019 the operator aims to extend overall coverage to about 60 to 65 per cent, provided the operator can overcome recent concerns of the progress in the rollout.
