Re: Installing new cable service in apartment block

The full infrastructure install is well underway. All the internal cabling is being installed first.

According to "Roadworks" Virgin will start the street works next Monday 1 Oct.

Only a single co-ax cable is being wired to each apartment, does this mean that a POTS telephone service will not be available?

I am therefore assuming that it will be a VOIP service only?

Correct, we dont deploy copper telephony any any new build/infill project now. Coax only and digital voice for phone services.

Re: Installing new cable service in apartment block
