Virgin Media will be carrying out work in Bishopstoke over the next few months. They will be dividing Bishopstoke into sections to have new cabling and cabinets installed and will be providing information to the Parish Council about when each section will begin as the project continues. The Parish Council will then publish this information on our website and Facebook.

When work is due to begin in your street you should receive a leaflet explaining what is happening about 1 week before the work begins. It is expected that each section will take around 1 month to complete.

At any point during this process Virgin can be contacted with questions or with complaints by emailing or by ringing 0333 000 5925.
