Adding a second person name on my account

Hi, my Virgin Broadband is installed at a house I rent out to tenants. I am trying to find a way of adding one of the tenant names to somewhere in the system so they can have permission to discuss directly with Virgin when there are issues with the broadband. I have had a look around but cannot find a way to do this. Does anyone know how/where I go to add the name of a person who actually uses the service and can communicate with Virgin when there are broadband issues at that house? (I don't live there, but am the bill payer/account holder.) Hope someone can help, thanks! 🙂

Re: Adding a second person name on my account

You can't add other names to accounts. But you can ask VM to note the account records that third party is authorised to deal with the account on your behalf. The VM staff here will explain how when they reach this thread in a couple of days or so.

Re: Adding a second person name on my account

Thanks, I've tried calling VM but get into loopedy loops of automated phone systems and can't find any route through to anything that helps. I understand in these strange Covid times it is difficult, so hope someone from VM will get back to me so I can add a tenant (or 2) name.

Re: Adding a second person name on my account

Hi Folks,

 

Is there a way we can arrange to do this online with someone in support via chat ? It's extremely difficult to use the phone system to get through to support, but if someone can talk to me via chat, all I want to do is confirm that Virgin Media can speak to my wife about the Account. The preceding note suggests that all the VM staff have to do is take a note of my account and my wife's name. Is that something you can do electronically ?

 

Thanks Ian

Re: Adding a second person name on my account

Hello ian_mcgaughrin,

 

If you're the account holder and can pass security with us, we can add a note onto your account for your wife. However please note that even if you've given permission, some changes on your account can only be done by the account holder.

 

I'll send you a Private Message so I can help you with the note, please reply back to it 🙂

 

Thanks,

 

Lisa
