Virgin Media, known as Project Lightning, will connect at least a quarter of its 4 million homes to Premise via Fiber. Overall, by 1719, approximately 17 million locations should be connected to their UK network, making it one of the largest investments in UK broadband infrastructure over the past decade.



The company has begun launching FTTP in Cambridgeshire and Leicestershire and is expected to begin soon in West Yorkshire, Devon and East Sussex. The technique it uses is called narrow trenching. This means that FTTP can be deployed at lower cost and faster speeds in areas with higher demand.



Virgin Media CEO Tom Mokrich said: "Our £3 billion investment will bring ultra-fast connections to more parts of the UK, not just to provide better broadband services, but to pass the best and The most modern technology provides future guarantees for the country's network infrastructure.
