I'm hoping someone here can help with my troubles.
At the beginning of March I signed up to VM after moving into our first home. I qualified for a self instalation broardband kit and from day one I got regular dropouts. An engineer was scheduled and came to take a look on the 18th of March. He was fantastic and confirmed that after several tests that there was infact damage to the cable between my property and the box on my road.
He told me I should see a rectified service between 5 and 14 days. 24 days later and im still having problems.
I have to be honest, I'm just really disappointed. Growing up at my parents property we had Virgin Media since they evolved from NTL and experienced a near flawless service, hence my choice of provider for our new home. But here, I'm signed up for the top connection and I'm not even getting one on a regular basis and have to resort to using my phone.
Does this problem fundamentally lie with Virgin Media or is it more a British Telecom/Open Reach issue?
Any guidance or advice here would be a huge help, I just was to be online when I need it.
Re: Regular drop-outs continue after Engineer visit
Does anyone have any suggestion on how I can follow up on this? Its been two days with no connection at all and its becoming challenging to run my business and scheduling another engineer just seems like id be wasting their time.
New customer and Ive spent 90% of my time disconnected
I'm really lost as to what to do now. I signed up to VM at the very beginning of March. 6 weeks and 4 days ago.
And from day one I've had problems. The hub fades white in and out and all devices say disconnected or connected without Internet. I contacted VM and a technician confirmed that it was a line fault between my house and a box and would be resolved between 5 and 14 days. Its now been 29 days and its still broken.
On the 22 of April im expected to pay £159 for a service I've not received.
Apart from now seeking legal advice what can I do about this?
I'm in the early stages of a business start-up that relys on a cloud based service and I cant even get online. Frustration is an understatement.
