No response to spotter request for a new home

Joining in


Last ditch attempt before I revert to OpenReach.

I submitted a request in late December, for a spotter to visit my new home to see if Virgin Media fibre could be installed. All my surrounding neighbours have VM Fibre, including properties less than 20 meters away.

I was told to wait 7 days, but i've had no response. I followed up and was told to wait a further 7 days, I had no response. I was then told the entire area wasn't serviced by Virgin - it is. I've confirmed this with the neighbours and I can see VM routers from my house. I was told to wait a further 7 days, no response.

I see this is a common issue amongst VM customers. I've used these forums before with success - so figured it might be worth posing the question before I ditch VM entirely.

Any advice gratefully appreciated.
