Cable Move

Hi,

We have been doing some renovations to the house and need to move the broadband cable from the room it is currently in to the room next door. How do I go about arranging an engineer to do this for us? Thanks

Re: Cable Move

There will be a fee of £25. 

The primary place to report faults or for service requests is Customer Services on 0345 454 1111/150 if you have a VM landline or wait two or three days for a VM staff member to get to your post.

Re: Cable Move

Thanks Tudor, I already tried to call Customer Services but couldn't get past the automated system. Also I have already noticed a number of threads about people with the same problem so kind of knew there would be a fee and that's ok. If we can remember our account password I'll try phoning again, otherwise I'll wait until someone picks it up here.

@VirginMedia - It might be a good idea to have an engineer request form in your customer account area. I can view and reschedule appointments but there is no facility for me to book an appointment in the first place!!

Hi @Mearns7 

VM have recently updated My Virgin Media and you should be able to update the account (memorable word) password by logging in there.

When logged in click on Account Settings >  Account Details > scroll down to Telephone Security Details  (memorable word) > and then click on Edit

Re: Cable Move

Hi Lee,

Yes I agree the Forum members have been extremely helpful and once I realised we could reset the Telephone Password on our account, I managed to get an appointment with an engineer booked for Friday 24th Feb which was a 1 week wait which is great. I've already responded to your private message.

Thanks to the Forum community for all their help and I'm looking forward to getting our Hub moved this week!

Re: Cable Move

Hi Beth,

The cable move happened as booked and all went smoothly, the engineer even extended the hub cable for me so I could change its position in my office. Fantastic job all round! Thanks
