The roll out of IPTV is expensive and does not provide the customer with much choice of channel because the bandwith is limited, that is the reason why Homechoice now TalkTalk TV hasn't expanded outside London much.
And as for Westminster, there isn't much choices because of the conservation rules and costs which is why Virgin Media pulled out of the Westminster area and due to BT of whom Virgin Media was leasing the Cable network from was not co-operating very much either.
