Phone line capacity full

Hi, I signed up for virgin fibre and phone line and hopefully the broadband will be installed at the second attempt on 15th September. However, on the original install date I was informed that I wouldn't be able to have the phone line installed due to there being no capacity.

Can I ask how long does it take for Virgin to increase the capacity? I need to make a decision on whether to stick with Virgin or try someone else. Would stick with them for the broadband only but the prices are silly.

Thanks

Re: Phone line capacity full

In some areas, phone capacity cannot be expanded due to the way the networks were originally built back in the 90's. If you are in one of these areas the only option is to wait until another customer on your cabinet leaves Virgin. The forum team here should be able to tell you if this is the case. They may take several days to reply.

If you are without a phone service for a while you should be credited back for that part of your service.

Re: Phone line capacity full

Thanks for the info nodrogd, much appreciated.

Its a new house on a new Estate and I think most people have gone with virgin as they had a deal with the builders.

I'm hoping given that it's a new housing estate that the cabinet can be increased instead of having to wait for someone else to leave.
