Cut cable

During roadworks the workmen accidentally cut the broadband cable. Who do we get in contact with to get it repaired?

Re: Cut cable

Customer services,

Or you can wait on here for a VM staff member to notice your post.

But if workmen did it, I would expect them to notify VM to get it repaired, as they'll be liable for the cost of fixing it.

Re: Cut cable

Main one in the road?

All the cables around here are run separately, so there's multiple cables in the road, one for each house ?

take you point - badly put by me - i meant - is this the main duct or the individual cable in the drop from the T - its the mention of roadworks that concerned me - roadworks are unlikely to damage the drop from the T

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you on board with us in the Community. 

I'm sorry to hear that the services are not working due to a cut cable. 

We can certainly get an engineer out to resolve things for you. I just need to confirm the address to ensure we are booking the visit on the correct account.

Re: Cut cable

Hi Tony the cable which was cut was the one on the pavement with the plastic round cap that connects to your property. The pavements in the area are being re-surfaced just unlucky !!thanks
