Re: Engineer Appointment

I believe the first engineer that came said the cable was broken and a new phone cable had to be installed

Re: Engineer Appointment

They do yes. If a job is not able to be completed then you will be contacted

Re: Engineer Appointment

I have not been contacted just had my online account updated to say the appointment is now 26 April.

That will result in being without a landline for 5 weeks. This is such poor service. From what I understand from the initial engineer visit all the work is outside, thus Covid can not be an excuse. I cannot believe what poor service Virgin are giving , will never recommend them to anyone again

Re: Engineer Appointment

Always disappointing to read posts on the forum like this.

Sounds like you are tumbling into a VM vortex of despair due to VM communication/administrative incompetence. Take note of the (not-quite-so) automatic compensation scheme here

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/automatic-compensation

and

https://store.virginmedia.com/the-legal-stuff/terms-and-conditions-for-fibre-optic-services/automati...

Read all of the small-print very carefully and the T&Cs as to how the compensation is applied and how it relates to your situation. Keep careful records of all your communications with VM and all of their failures to deliver the repair (dates, times, contacts etc.).

Once your repair is actually completed, calculate how much you think you are due.
