like im going to drum up new customers for them .
the reason for this is because they need to have everyones approval from the council to dig up the road/pavement to lay the cable and then its still a VERY large expense to virgin.
now then if they just used the telephone polls to supply the cable, like most places in the states, you wouldnt have this issue.
