Virgin Media has announced yet another big rollout of its broadband, home phone, and TV services - this time to a whopping 30 towns and communities around the country.

The latest step in the provider's Supercharging Local Communities scheme will bring it to smaller villages and parishes this time around, mostly in rural areas across England.

As well as that, any home or business that takes out a package in these areas will get it via a FTTP (fibre to the premises) line, so you can expect faster broadband speeds and a more reliable connection.

The list of new communities is as follows:

  • Baddesley Ensor, Warwickshire
  • Balsall Common, West Midlands
  • Broughton Astley, Leicestershire
  • Chineham and Old Basing, Hampshire
  • Copmanthorpe, North Yorkshire
  • Cudworth, South Yorkshire
  • Cullingworth, West Yorkshire
  • Darfield, South Yorkshire
  • Denham, Buckinghamshire
  • Duffield, Derbyshire
  • Farnham Common, Buckinghamshire
  • Grassmoor, Derbyshire
  • Grimethorpe, South Yorkshire
  • Harden, West Yorkshire
  • Llanharry, Rhondda
  • Lickey, Catshill, Marlbrook, and Barnt Green, Worcestershire
  • Marcham, Oxfordshire
  • North Cornelly, Bridgend
  • North Leigh, Oxfordshire
  • Oakley, Hampshire
  • Pontyclun, Rhondda
  • Repton, Derbyshire
  • Shafton, South Yorkshire
  • Shrivenham, Oxfordshire
  • Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire
  • Talke and Talke Pits, Staffordshire
  • Wargrave, Berkshire
  • Watchfield, Oxfordshire
  • Wiggington and Haxby, North Yorkshire
  • Windlesham, Surrey

Virgin Media says its network will arrive in these communities by spring 2017. For more information - or to vote for your own town to get the provider's services - go to virginmedia.com/cablemystreet.
