Hi, can anyone tell me why my Internet disconnects when the house phone rings. We have adsl filters in place which have been renewed but this is still happening and is very annoying. Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks
there is every chance that one of your recently renewed adsl filters may have developed a fault. Call Customer Services on 150 0r 151 free from a virgin landline or alternatively call 0845 4541111 from any telephone or mobile for assistance in resolving this issue.

What you're describing sounds like what's called a high open fault. Before we can escalate this to our faults team we will need you to go through a couple of diagnostics:
1) If you can first plug all the equipment (your phone and broadband via the filter) into the main BT test socket
2) Then if the issue is still occurring then you will need to lastly either try an alternative handset, or try your handset at another property (just to make sure the handset is not causing the issue).
If you are still receiving the same issue, you need to contact our call centre on either 0845 454 2222 or 151 option 3 from a Virgin Landline.
