We have had no phone for over a month. I have called in a number of times, on my mobile, I had an engineer come out that broke the phone socket off the wall and wasn’t interested. I had three engineers from the cable gang turn up as it was an external fault and hadn’t a clue what they were doing. I had to advise where the pits were and that the duct was blocked from years ago. previously I had to be transferred to another spare cable as they couldn’t install a new one. The engineers came and disappeared with no communication from anybody. Then after a number of one hour phone calls and texts they said they would come back the 27th Jan, then it was the 19th then the 18th and after that I had a text saying 2nd feb. I questioned that this morning via text and they said 2nd feb. as I was texting Virgin turned up to install a cable? There is no communication at all within Virgin. I asked about my bill and would I get a refund for no phone service. The response was I would have to sort it myself. One thing after another and I can see why Virgin get so many complaints. And to top it off they are putting my bill up £4.50 a month. What a joke of a company.
Thanks for coming back to me Slatt, and I'm terribly sorry to hear of the difficulties you've faced with the landline services.
Can you tell me if the landline is now working, or if the required work is currently being carried out?
In regards to the refund, we are part of the automated compensation scheme that's been put in place by our regulators, which requires our system to detect losses of services and will then refund customers £8.00 per day for no service beyond the initial 48 hour period, after you've advised us of the fault

I have been trying for over three weeks to get a home phone fault sorted. Cut a long story short they have came to site and installed a new cable. They left site and now the cable ducting is left on top of the ground and the cover hanging off the wall box, rubbish all over my garden including a 12M length of cable that I have cleared away. I want the cable laying at the correct depth as per NJUG at 250mm and not 2mm.
