Our street has just been cabled but our building was missed out. Apparently they need consent from residents but I haven't been asked, or had any contact with anyone from Virgin.
I asked the contractors if they knew anyone I could talk to, so that I could help getting consent, but haven't heard anything.
We have the worlds slowest internet, literally in the kilobytes. We're desperate for a better connection so I really want to make sure we aren't left out when the entire estate has been cabled and the contractors move on.
Is there anyone I can contact to get information? What should I do?
I typed in a neighbours house number and can see they have access to all of Virgins products so the cable is now live... but I have not received any news about connecting my property. The constructors have been gone for months and there has been nothing through the door.
I'm a bit annoyed as I have offered Virgin reps, the constructors, and Virgin customer service on several occasions for advice and if I can support them (as a resident) in getting us connected.
I have re-raised this via our new process to the regional teams to see if they can support you with this.
The other option that may be of use if you have not yet tried this is to speak to Sales and make them aware that its location is on a street where the network is connected to see if they can send a Spotter for you?
The number if you'd like to give this a try is 0800 183 1234
If you do call, let me know what they say and I'll keep an eye on my replies this week for you. I am off next week but we can catch up again from the first full week of June if there's no response.
