ISP Virgin Media UK Finish FTTP Build to 4000 Premises in Ossett

Wednesday, September 4th, 2019 (10:35 am) - Score 1,533

Cable ISP Virgin Media has confirmed that they’ve just completed another network extension, which has built their 500Mbps+ capable “full fibre” (FTTP) broadband and TV network to cover 4,000 homes and businesses in the West Yorkshire town of Ossett (population 22,000). This follows the 600 added in Wallasey (Wirral) last week.

As usual this forms part of their national Project Lightning programme, which aims to add an additional 3-4 million premises to their UK coverage (so far they’ve completed over 1.8 million) via a mix of Hybrid Fibre Coax (HFC) technology and Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) via Radio Frequency Over Glass (RFoG). Both methods make use of the EuroDOCSIS 3.0 standard so as to harness the same consumer hardware (Hub 3.0 and V6 TV Box).

The operator is also just starting to rollout their new DOCSIS 3.1 network upgrade (here), which by the end of 2021 should have boosted their top broadband download speeds up to 1Gbps across the United Kingdom (starting in Southampton).

Hugh Woolford, Regional Director for North East and Yorkshire, said:

“It’s great news for the residents and businesses in Osset that we’ve completed our expansion in the area. More than 4,000 homes and business now have access to the UK’s fastest widely available network, adding to a large footprint of homes and businesses that we’ve passed in Yorkshire. Our ultrafast broadband speeds mean people can stream, shop, work, play, and do all the things they love more easily and more quickly.”

End.
