Virgin Media Faster Broadband
Please register your interest now at:
Residential : www.virginmedia.com/cablemystreet.
You are not personally committing to anything - just giving your name, address and email – and expressing an interest in knowing more about the scheme.
Just as importantly, even if you are satisfied with your current service, registering helps your neighbours and the neighbouring villages who haven’t been so lucky to obtain the same level of service that 95% of the population in the UK now take for granted.
