Your engineers have cut off my broadband 5 times now using an RPB. The last 4 times when they come to repair it they basically just played with the cables in the my property and said all was fixed now. The latest One they turned up the same as before without my knowledge and did it again. Two days later after yet another visit they now tell me the fault is between the cabinet and my house. They removed the RPB and arranged for another engineer to come and “pull through” another cable. I agreed with them a date and time. They also informed me I HAD to be present for access etc. I also received three texts confirming appointment and also stating my presence was required. The arrives I wait from 8am to 1pm and no one shows. After three phone calls Engineers show up 2&1/2 late. I was heading out the door to work and told them now was not convenient. After another call to you I am told I have to book another call out. I informed them my broadband is fine so why should I waste another lost day for something that to me works fine. I would like to leave your company because I am self employed and keep having to loose money by taking time off in order for you to fix a problem that is not my fault. Please can you explain why not?
I am more than happy to let you fix the problem if you stick to your side of the agreement and actually turn up in time arranged. Also have been told two different things as to whether my presence is necessary while the work is carried out.
A network engineer turned up out of the blue about to place an RPB on my line again. Fortunately I was home this time. He has arranged for a pull through to be done in a few weeks and kept my line open for the time being. So I will yet again take an unpaid afternoon off work for your people to rectify a problem that should of been done over a year ago.
Your engineers never showed up again. Another complete waste of an afternoon for me. Your overseas call centres are idiots and kept telling me the work was completed which is rubbish. For a communications company Virgin Media are not very good at communicating. I wish somebody of authority could look at this and get it sorted.
It turns out they showed up and did the work The time arranged was 1pm to 6pm. I arranged for the afternoon off work and went out in the morning. They showed up in the morning while I wasn’t in. A simple call or a note through the door would have helped.
