So I booked my installtion like a month ago and today a technician showed up on time, spent 10 minutes looking for the socket and told me he couldn't install it for me as it would require another team to do some external work. Shouldn't that be done before the installation???
I specifically requested pre-installation survey to avoid such situation and now I am left with no Internet connection and no estimated installation date. Also, I received the estimated bill soon after the technician left? I don't even have the service installed!!
Welcome to our Community Forum! Thank you so much for posting, we really appreciate it.
Apologies about the delayed response, and we're sorry to hear that your install has been pushed back! I can understand that this is a very frustrating situation.
If you have not been in contact with the pre-install team, I would advise you give them a call directly on 08000521734.
However, I have been able to find locate your account from the details you used on your forum page and I can see that you have been in touch with the team recently and they advised you of more details.
Please keep us updated on your install and let us know if there's anything else we can help with.
I noticed that the contract was sent to the wrong email address(due to the typo of the agent). Also there were three appointments scheduled for external work and no one showed up so far. I have no idea what's going on.
Apologies for the delays in getting you installed, we can understand the frustration caused by these delays.
From your account it looks like permission was required for some work to be carried out, notes indicate this was obtained on the 7th May, I've reached out to the team to see if there are any updates on this.
Apologies for the delays in getting back to you, I can see you have spoken to the team today in regards to the cancelled appointment. From the information i have received this is due to the work required to complete the installation. As it requires a two man crew this has caused a delay to the date.
I'm sorry for both the delays and the inconvenience caused.
I did call several times. One of the agents just suddenly ended the call midway. The second time I was transferred to the field operation center but then it said they couldn't handle my call right now. Now I'm on my third call.
I am literally furious at the moment. How many appointments I had already? Two pre-survey staff and two or three engineers showed up and the internet still hasn't been installed. WTH?
As I'm going back to the office next week, I don't really have more time to waste with Virgin Media.
