Cabinate Vandilised

This probably explains why getting speeds as low as 0.15kbps

Have reported it to tech support and online form but no one been out

been ripped open, all cables pulled out and some set on fire.

It is in a tower block so technically a secure location

No one seems to care about this box or fix it or my speed.

Re: Cabinate Vandilised

Are you sure this is VM's responsibility (ie it is only for VM equipment), or is it a shared cabinet for all that floor's telecoms/TV? If it is shared then call your landlord, as the infrastructure is their problem if it is damaged. VM's network termination is usually in an equipment room on the ground floor.

Re: Cabinate Vandilised

yes its is a virgin media box the phone lines are fed from the VTM1 box outside on the street but the tv/broadband cables are fed by the MDU boxes in the stairwell, there are 3 of them on various floors. (one feeds ground - floor 5), (one feeds floor 6-11), (one feeds floor 12-16), box 12 feeds box 6 which inturn feeds the other box. as cable is initally fed to roof and works its way down. we get a direct feed from the exchange and not through the standard street setup.

The setup in this building is different than normal but it is 100% virgin media box and responsibility. council/landlord is prohibited from touching it.
