Virgin Media rollout to add 42,000 premises in Devon to 300Mbps service

As part of the Project Lightning, Virgin Media has announced that the expansion of their ultrafast 300Mbps fibre broadband and TV service will soon benefit an additional 42,000 premises in Devon. Their latest deployment work has started in Torquay. The rollout will probably put almost 24,000 additional premisses here connected. The project in Devon apparently is to be completed before the end of 2019.

The £3 billion network expansion work of Project Lightning targets a total of 17 million premises before the end of 2019. This means that another 4 million premises, inclusive of a 2 million premises on FTTP, would be reached to boost coverage across UK to around 60 to 65 percentage. This announcement follows some recent controversy of their failure to inform the correct stage of progress made in deployment of their national network, besides a recent speeding up consumer packages on broadband service.

Virgin Media’s Regional Director, Maurice Dave, expressed his delight in expanding the network to thousands more and to help Devon become a world class digital hotspot. He urged people to register their interest to put their street next in line. MP for Torquay, Kevin Foster, said he is delighted the investment is bringing 300Mbps speeds to keep the bay connected and drive the economy forward.
