Virgin Media Expansion

Virgin Media has announced a massive £3bn expansion (called “Project Lightning“) of their existing capable cable broadband, TV and phone network.

This will extend the reach of their services to an additional 4 million homes and businesses by 2020.

This could be very good news for Rotherhithe as Virgin already has some infrastructure here and has shown interest in expanding the area.

We will continue our dialogue with Virgin and see what we can do to get Virgin to expand to the whole of Rotherhithe as soon as possible.

The flip side of this is that the hint of competition may well get BT to bring forward any plans they have.
