4 day with no broadband from Virgin

Joining in

What's going on? I live on East London and we've had no broadband service from Virgin for 4 days now. Status update just keep pushing back the the day and time the problem will be fixed. I am disabled and working from home so using the sim card in my laptop is very expensive. Not only that,  a couple of hours of netflix of an evening helps calm me down so I've been struggling this week with a build up of anxiety.

Did anyone know when this will be fixed?

Any info you get on here will be nothing more than an estimated fix time. It is likely to be based on the same info you can see yourself on the service status pages. It is often suggested on here that the automated service status number 0800 561 0061 is the most accurate for local issues.

Make sure you have logged the fault with VM by phoning in, using one of the automated online tests (and getting a confirmation of a fault) or the above number so you are eligible for any compensation due. Capture some evidence of when you did these things as the compensation is sometimes not quite as 'automatic' as the name suggests.

This should however now be resolved.
