Landline not working

Joining in


My Landline has no dialling tone and cannot make or receive calls.

According to the Virginmedia website there are no problems in my area.

I am currently on my mobile waiting to speak to someone at V.M. about this issue. Been on hold for over 10mins already. Why is it that you have to waste half your day these days to get to speak to an employee for most big companies, when you used to call & get service within minutes? Is it due to working from home, or companies not employing as many staff in order to make even more profit. either way is is unacceptable as a paying customer.

Hi Molly,

Like I said, I had already checked the VM website which shows 'No fault in my area'.

Eventually spoke with VM employee (wait time far too long!). Engineer booked to call this Monday. But thanks for your reply.
