Cable re-pull appointment kept delayed. No internet connection at all. Any alternative? Help!
Hi all, I really need some help here.
My family is new to England and we moved to a location with very poor mobile connection. We counted on broadband installation so that we could have a better communication with outside. Virgin Media is the only choice we have here with speed over 100mb and so we, with lots of hope, signed the 18-mth contract. Of course, as lots of experienced users here, problem was met during installation. VM technician came and told us that there was problem with the main cable into the property and a re-pull was required. Appointment was made and we waited for half day. No one came. I used Live Chat in VM's web and they put me waited for over 90 mins kept telling me they were checking for the problem, but with no answer eventually. So I called the hotline and made another appointment again. After another half day waiting, no one come. The story re-run for another two times, and still, no one came, ever! Now, I'm waiting for my fifth appointment, which should happen before mid December, but I am really doubted that would just be another half day empty waiting...
And my contract had started and I am already paying for this so-call "service"...
But my biggest problem here is that as the location I live is with very poor mobile service. And now I have no internet connection, I nearly lost my communication to outside. We are new to England and are really not familiarized with things here. No internet connection makes things even worse. Could anyone give me any suggestion, like any company which could provide no contract internet service as my temporary solution?
