Green flashing lights, first time installation, plusnet line also installed.

I had virgin delivered yesterday for quick start, installed as instructed yet all I've got is the green flashing power light and a solid green WiFi light. 

I do have a plusnet fibre line also installed so I don't know if ones blocking the other but I've tried rebooting the virgin hub with no luck. 

Any help would be appreciated. 

Heidi

Possibly the hub has not been added to your account. Call

Equipment activation on 0800 953 9500

When I spoke to virgin last night they said everything was showing as connected at their end. He activated the hub and sent the signal to it a few times.

Try the number as above from Tudor .  Your Plusnet will be completely separate and will not interfere with VM cable.

It turns out the line had been cut through when the previous owners done the front garden. We had to have an engineer out who repaired the line in a few hours. Unfortunately there was no quick fix.

Re: Green flashing lights, first time installation, plusnet line also installed.

I’m glad you asked. 

CS center is fine he didn’t give me too much trouble and booked me a technician 4 days later. It sucks coz I just moved in and this area has pretty bad phone signal but I can survive 4 days without network.

First technician arrived on time. He did something checking and said the cable outside of my house is damaged however he cannot fix it. He said he will send something to fix it on the same day, he also said I don’t have to be here because everything in my house is ready to go, once the next technician finish replacing the cable it’s done. He said I will be told when it’s done or a card will be left to let me know if I’m not in the house.

Here is the nightmare starts. The next technician did arrived on the same day. After they left nobody telling me anything. And I still don’t have network so I thought oh maybe they haven’t finish their job, maybe they just went to lunch so I patiently wait.

5 hours nobody come back, no card is left, no notification, no network.

I called customer service again they said the maintenance file is still active. He has no authority to close file or send another technician. He suggested me calling 0800 052 5738 but they are close already their operating hour starts at 8.

Next day 8:03 I called the number. I spent 35 mins explained my situation to 4 different persons and they kept transferring me to a different team (and wrong team). The most ridiculous thing is the last guy said I should call 0800 052 5738, which is exactly the number I am calling. I was so tilt hearing he said that I asked him please just send someone who can help me to call me ASAP.

Of course no one called me.

I called it again 2 hours later. Finally I got to the right team and they booked me another technician…4 days later. 

The reasons I am telling this story:

  1. I am so upset about the phone call such a wasting time ( and I had to wake up early to hear that. 
  2. I used all my data this month and now I have to purchase extra data when I’m still paying network

I don’t know who I can talk to ( and I’m too tired to call virgin media again) Thank you for reading this and good luck to anyone who is considering joining virgin.

Re: Green flashing lights, first time installation, plusnet line also installed.

Hello LemonteaNocup, 

Thanks for explaining everything in your last reply.

I can see we have now connected the service, 

Is everything working as it should?

Regarding the data charges, I can take a look at this and see what we can do to help.

If you don't mind, I will need to send you a private message to pass security. 
If you can check the purple envelope top right of your screen that would be great. 
Regards
