But where does the brmb bit come into it then? That stands for Bromborough.
Sorry for all the questions I'm just interested in how it all works. There is a small VM building on the industrial estate in Bromborough.

It still gets listed even though it is a rescue centre now for the network or something along those lines as is Knowsley, everything is supposed to hang just off Langley now.

brmb is Bromborough.

That's your CMTS (UBR) The location of Virgin Media hub sites is security sensitive as they contain expensive equipment. Believe me VM have dealt with security incidents around CMTS cards.

All the local councils in North London used Telewest Business and that has recently been extended to the primary care trust. All the telephone numbers have changed to 0203 numbers because of it.

So Virgin Media Business must be doing something right to get those sort of contracts.
