Hi All,
Has anyone been able to get broadband yet? If so did you have to go with Virgin Media, as i saw their logo on the ports, or has anyone gone with BT or Sky?

Unfortunately we cannot make it this weekend but looking forward to meeting you all at the next catch up.



Hi Olie,

We've gone with Talk Talk. We got this set up yesterday - the Talk Talk man was there for hours as he said the Exchange hadn't set up the wires correctly but he got there in the end.

Almost went with Virgin Media as we had a flyer from someone who works for them, gave him a call and he said he was setting people up this week.

How is going with you guys in terms of defects? Any major concerns? I haven't found anything terrible to be honest. Few panenls outside do not seem to have been fitted properly and one thing i have noticed is that the water on the terraces drains very slowly.

We had an issue with our front door - but this was fixed straight away, so impressed with how fast they have responded! But yes I agree, everything seems to be solidly built. Our major thing has been squeezing recycling into the bins!!

I wonder if we should extend our invite out to everyone else in the building for coffee this Saturday morning? I can pop a note up on the noticeboard (assuming we are allowed to use it?!) just inside the front door. Asking if people want to meet their new neighbours at the Exchange

Happy to keep it to us guys on here though, if you would prefer.

It still feels like a lot of people are yet to move in - very quiet at the moment, and I've only bumped into a handful of people

Also, Kevin you are of course welcome to join us - would be good to meet someone who has lived in the area a little longer!

I agree, lets extend it to all that lives here. I've bumped into a few people so will let them know about Saturday. See you there.

Hi guys

I moved in last week and it would be nice to meet new neighbours - would it be ok to come along tomorrow? Thanks

Hi Shell1011

Please do. More the merrier. We'll be there from 11am. Come to the bakery/deli bit of Del Aziz. I've reserved the big wooden table in there for us from 11am under my name - Nik. Here is the address:

Del Aziz
11 Bermondsey Square
London SE1 3UN

Turn left on Neckinger, then left on Abbey Street. Walk to the cross roads and it's facing you on the corner of Tower Bridge Rd and beginning of Long Lane. It's about 5mins walk from the development.

See you all tomorrow.

Hi guys
I originally had a virgin media installation at that time but it's been pushed back so can see you all tomorrow!
