Virgin Media Build FTTP to 2,500 Homes in Shelf, West Yorkshire

Some 2,500 extra homes in the large West Yorkshire (England) village of Shelf have just become the latest to benefit from the expansion of Virgin Media’s new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based broadband and TV network, which by the end of 2021 will also be able to deliver gigabit speeds to locals.

The latest work forms part of VM’s ongoing Project Lightning build, which has so far extended their network to cover over 2.6 million extra UK premises. The operator’s original network was deployed using Hybrid Fibre Coax (HFC) technology, but this expansion harnessed FTTP via Radio Frequency Over Glass (RFoG) – both methods make use of the DOCSIS standard to harness the same consumer hardware.

At the same time Virgin Media are also rolling out their latest DOCSIS 3.1 network upgrade across the UK, which by the end of 2021 aims to have made download speeds of 1Gbps+ possible across their network of around 15.5 million premises. Outside those areas you can currently expect average speeds of up to c.630Mbps from their existing EuroDOCSIS 3.0 based packages (via their top Ultimate Oomph TV bundle).

      Not really: if you don’t like the article then don’t read them.

      You will know from my comments that I am no fan of VM but that I do support anyone rolling out FTTP infrastructure in the UK.

      So in that vein supporting progress of better connectivity is what this site is about.

      We could always be thankful that rather than arguing about wether OR should be going FTTC/Gfast to the DP we are now arguing about what flavour of FFTP is the best.
