Virgin Media are investing £3bn of private investment to expand our ultrafast broadband network across the UK, the largest investment in digital communications in a decade.
We have identified Barnet as a key location for expansion and are looking to bring our network to more homes and businesses across the area. We are passionate about the benefits that better connectivity can bring for local residents, businesses and communities. We’re hoping to connect up to 14,800 homes or businesses within the area.
Virgin Media will be deploying our next generation broadband network which is known as FTTP (Fibre to the Premise). This technology is future proofed and will provide each resident with a ultra-fast broadband connection right outside of their property.  There will be a roll-out of Virgin Media services taking place in your community over the coming months, which has been agreed by the Council.  We will be working with your local highways department to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum; however there are long-term gains as your community moves a step closer to becoming a truly connected area.
I have arranged for a Community Information Event at the Hope Corner Community Centre, 185 Mays Lane, Barnet EN5 2DY to publicise our project with residents and local businesses.
