Communal Virgin Media

We have our own account, but the building we live in has a communal Virgin Media.

How do you log on to this ?

Re: Communal Virgin Media

You'd need to ask the account holder as I imagine they control access!

Re: Communal Virgin Media

Thanks for your post and welcome to the Community Forums, davidjill2018,

 

@lotharmat is right, we would not have any information regarding the communal service in your building. You'd  need to the building owner or superintendent to get access details.

 

Cheers,

Corey C

Re: Communal Virgin Media

There are the WiFi hotspots which are available for use outside the range of your home WiFi, which shows up as 'Virgin Media'

These can be accessed by using the Connect app to set up your device

Re: Communal Virgin Media

Good shout by @BenMcr,  If you are meaning wifi hotspots, davidjill2018, then the Connect App is what you are looking for.

 

Cheers,

Corey C

Re: Communal Virgin Media

Access to the internet when our own is down. We live in block with some 250 appartments and have occasion when own broadband is down and unable to access internet. We also have an outside communal roof garden area above the flats where "vigin media" can be found out of reach of our own wifi

Re: Communal Virgin Media

In that case you definitely need to look at the connect app!

Re: Communal Virgin Media

Bear in mind that the hotspot has limited speeds. If a number of those residents are all logging on to the hotspot it will be slow and not very reliable.
