Virgin Media and Scottish Property Federation Sign Deal for New Builds

Thursday, December 1st, 2016 (2:49 pm) - Score 407

Last month Virgin Media announced that their ultrafast cable broadband and TV network would be extended to 360,000 extra premises in Scotland. Today the operator has built on that by signing a partnership with the Scottish Property Federation, which will help to reach more new build homes.

The agreement is similar to Virgin Media’s other recent partnerships with the Home Builder’s Federation (here), Redrow (here) and Bloor Homes (here). New build home-owners should also benefit from exclusive discounts under this scheme.

Developers of all sizes are also being encouraged to register their construction plans via a special portal (here), which offers “essential technical guidance” that can help to prepare for Virgin’s infrastructure (view the technical document). All of this benefit’s the operators £3bn Project Lightning network expansion, not least because it’s always cheaper to deploy the cables before you put concrete and tarmac down.

David Melhuish, Director at Scottish Property Federation, said:

“We are pleased to be working with Virgin Media to help house builders deliver ultrafast broadband services to homes across Scotland. House buyers, as well as businesses, expect the best services and there is concern about the quality of broadband in new homes. Our new partnership will help SPF members create communities that are equipped for the 21st century.”

Virgin Media is currently in the process of expanding their network to an additional 4 million UK premises by 2019, half of which will be catered for by Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) broadband technology.
