Virgin Media UK Build FTTP to 5,600 Homes in New Rossington

The large village of New Rossington just outside Doncaster (South Yorkshire), which is home to around 14,000 people, has just become the latest to benefit from Virgin Media’s expansion of their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based broadband ISP network. Some 5,600 homes have been covered.

As usual this roll-out forms part of the operator’s £3bn Project Lightning build, which originally aimed to add an additional 4 million premises to their UK coverage by 2020 but has so far only completed 2.3 million. The operator tends to use a mix of FTTP via Radio Frequency Over Glass (RFoG) and also Hybrid Fibre Coax (HFC) technology – both methods make use of the DOCSIS standard so as to harness the same consumer hardware.

Virgin Media is currently also deploying their latest DOCSIS 3.1 network upgrade across the United Kingdom, which by the end of 2021 aims to have made download speeds of 1Gbps+ possible across their entire network (here). Outside of those areas you can expect average speeds of up to 516Mbps from their top EuroDOCSIS 3.0 based packages, which will soon be rising to 600Mbps via their top Ultimate Oomph TV bundle.

    What about Bessacarr and Cantley? CityFibre was supposed to be digging up roads but haven’t seen them around Bessacarr. Only person I saw was a guy from opeanreach doing one house! Telewest promised me cable tv in 1998 – I’m still waiting!
