Re: NEW BUILD CONNECTION

Hi.

I am also having trouble getting answers about connection to our new build house on a Barratt house.

The development is The Links, Kepple Lane, Garstang, Preston and my address is:-

3 Cross Court, Garstang, Preston, PR31AF.

The lady in the local Virgin Media shop showed me on her screen that some addresses on the development can sign up but my address is showing as no plans to install. I’m assured by the builder that the cables are in on the whole estate but it’s very difficult trying to find out from either the developer or the Virgin call centre when I will be able to sign up and what steps are still left to make this happen.

please help!

Re: NEW BUILD CONNECTION

Hi Msouthwell,

 

Thanks for using the Virgin Community in raising your connectivity issue with the new property.

 

I recommend you remove your personal details from the post as we will never ask them in here.

 

We'd like to double check the connections in your new address but we need to ask some account and personal details from you. We can do this via online chat.

 

Thanks,

 

Valerie_T

Re: NEW BUILD CONNECTION

Hi Valerie.

im afraid that really wasn’t helpful at all. I just ended up going through the same process I’ve been through twice before with your front of office sales team, I.e. they check my postcode and say it’s not available.

People on this thread seem to have had a really positive bespoke response to the very specific problem about their particular new build development. 

I would be very grateful if someone could do the same for me as I’m finding the whole thing incredibly frustrating!

thanks

Re: NEW BUILD CONNECTION

I can’t quite believe this response given how other people have been asssisted on this thread. Your colleague Kath seems to have had a really positive response if you go back through previous posts and I’m afraid you are letting the side down.

As has been highlighted on this thread many many times the issue goes way beyond just checking a postcode on a computer screen.

Kath, if you’re out there please help me!

Re: NEW BUILD CONNECTION

Hi,

Im moving into a new build Barratt estate in Westbury Wiltshire next month, Virgin postcode checker says Virgin available in next road but not mine, surely they will be running Virgin through this new large Barratt estate! 

Please help I don’t want BT🙁
