First of all, I am not impressed that I had to "join the community" just to ask a question. But, to the point......the contractors laying the cable in my area currently have basically left me housebound. I use a mobility scooter to get out if my husband or dad aren't available to drive me. I have been unable to go out due to the footpaths being left impassable either by barriers or due to the holes that have been left. When I spoke to one of the contractors a few minutes ago he said "ah sure we'll be gone in a week". I told him that didn't help me much as I was still housebound and also they have left the footpaths in such a bad state that using my scooter will be a bone shaker of a ride and cause me alot of pain. Basically your contractors do not care about the disruption they are causing residents. If I had ever thought of getting Virgin media, I certainly will NOT be getting it now. Our footpaths need FULLY resurfaced. I will be contacting the Roads Service first thing on Monday!
