Re: Virgin Media street cabinets

VM have no regulatory obligations to maintain their infrastructure, whereas Openreach do.  As surveying and maintaining cabinets is a cash cost with few short term benefits, VM choose not to do this routinely, and wait until problems arise before dealing with them.  You can report a cabinet that's open here and something will probably be done.

Re: Virgin Media street cabinets

i've seen many open BT cabinets in my time, so to suggest that it's only virgin that has this issue is false.
maybe the local hooligans in your area only like to tamper with the virgin cabinets.

Hello

You can report open / damaged cabinets with the automated system on 0330 333 0444 you will need the post code and street name or the number of cabinet to report it.
