My future landlord says I cannot install Virgin Media Broadband

Hi all,

I'm planning to move to a new location and my future landlord told me that I cannot have Virgin Media because of having BT line installed.

Any idea what can I do?

 

Thanks!

not really. the contract is at the current address. VM dont charge the fee if you agree a new contract at the new locations if possible. if this is not possible then the disconnecton fee apply.

Other option is fine a place with a better landlord Smiley Tongue

nothing you can do. If the landlord said no VM can't install. you need a form signing by the landlord before vm would be able to install.

Looks like you will be going with BT

Since you don't own the property there isn't much you can do other than to choose an ISP (not Virgin Media) that supplies broadband via the telephone line.

Perhaps he is simply unaware that BT and Virgin Media can be installed in the same location because they use different networks.

So then I'm forced to pay the cancelation fee, right? Any other option?

 

Thanks

you could try and explain to the landlord the benefits of virginmedia, or possible doesn't want to have a virginmedia box on the outside of the wall/property
