Me and 4 other student's have just moved into a property. The previous tenants used BT Broadband however we wish to use Virgin Media.
I've called Virgin Media numerous times and have not had a clear, concise answer yet as to why our house isn't serviceable for Virgin Media? I've been asking many times for Virgin to book an engineer to come to our house to install the necessary components for us to use Virgin Media.
I know we can use Virgin as our neighbor uses Virgin, every website I go onto to check to see of Virgin is available to us (uncluding USwitch) it shows we can.
Can I get an engineer booked here as soon as possible? I'm having to use my phone as a hotspot as I have unlimited data and wish to have this issue resolved soon.
What does it say when you put your address into VM's own service checker - does it say service can be provided? And when you called in did they say it can be had at your property? Neighbour usage can be an irrelevance - for example - if you live in a high rise it may not be serviceable, there may be a "blockage" that prevents them from "economically" laying a cable in, the landlord may have refused access to the property or VM may already have the maximum users connected in your location and cannot add more until some leave. A VM person should reply in a day or two and get more specific details from you and investigate the possibility.
