Digging up your street is expensive
I guess Virgin Media must have turfed out all the knowedgable and experienced people who came to them from NTL, Telewest, Telecentral etc who know from the shareholder value bonfire/bankrupcy/administration of NTL-Telewest that Virgin Media emerged from debt free that digging the roads up costs loadsamoney.,
BT have been labouring this point for years, and it's why Sky and Talk Talk decline to shove their hands in their pockets to deliver any infrastructure, and Vodafone have done little with the purchase of C & W infrastructure.
Virgin media out of town??? ...........nah.
