Virgin High Speed Broadband in the Test & Dunn Valley

Virgin Media

Chilbolton village has now gone live with the new Virgin Media (VM) FTTP network and residents of Chilbolton can now start to take up services from VM. This is obviously a major milestone in the quest for superfast broadband in the Test and Dun Valleys.

On Tuesday 4 September from 6.00pm – 8.30pm VM sales reps were in the Chilbolton Village Hall so that Chilbolton residents could sign up for a contract. There was a temporary fibre feed into the village hall that night to demonstrate the speeds available through this is exciting new network. While the event was primarily a sales event for Chilbolton, others were welcome to attend to see the fibre speeds in action and to talk to VM representatives.

VM will be hosting similar events in each village as they are released. Goodworth Clatford will be the next village to be released, hopefully followed by Wherwell and Kings Somborne at the end of September/early October. Michelmersh and Timsbury and Stockbridge, should all be live by the end of the year. 

Planning for the Phase II villages is well underway and it is hoped that part of the build will start in the 4th quarter this year. The website below will be kept up to date as villages go live and to report progress of the build.
