This very exciting confirmation of the Virgin Media scheme is hitting inboxes this evening.


We're getting in touch with some brilliant news.

Thanks to a campaign by your community, the Community Network Build Scheme has successfully hit its 25% sign-up target set for the Test and Dun Valley area. Nice work.

As a result, we'll now get plans moving to start connecting your area to our fibre network. When it's all done, we could be bringing you ultrafast Virgin Fibre and unmissable Virgin TV.

Once the network is up and running, we will only ask you to pay the £300 if (and when) you decide to take up services. This will be in addition to our standard installation, activation and monthly charges you'd expect to pay for a broadband and TV subscription service.

As you can imagine, a project of this size can take a while to complete but we'll be in touch as soon as your area is connected.
Kind regards,
The Virgin Media team

Have you signed up yet?

Register your interest before 31st July when registrations close, if you signed up last year you need to use the new portal to register again.

Join us and bring 21st Century technology to the village. This is the first time Virgin Media has agreed to build in community scheme in the U.K. If the target is met the build could start as soon as October this year!

This isn't a contract and doesn't tie you in to anything. By signing up you help everyone in the Villegas, whether you ultimately decide to take out a contract or not.

Please share and do something great for the future and sustainability of King's Somborne.

You can now formally register with Virgin Media to show your interest and get the build team in to King's Somborne.

This is similar to what you may have done in 2016, however you can now use the new portal to register.

We need 120 properties in the village to sign up to enable the build to go ahead, however by signing up you are not signing a contract, simply registering your interest.

Please help secure the village communications for the future.

Very good news from Virgin Media for King's Somborne.

The cost on installation will now be a flat rate of £300 (plus the usual installation cost) but will only be payable when enough people have signed up and we know the installation is definitely happening.

In King's Somborne we need 25% of properties to sign up to achieve our build. This is quite a task, however it is vital for the future connectivity of homes in the village.

Virgin Media will have a stall at the Village Fun Day in July to talk to more people about this.
