So I originally took out the installation in late April. Every time the installation was supposed to go ahead, I was notified less than 24 hours before that the installation has been postponed to a month away. This is the third time it has happened now.
Installation was due on the 24th June. Even spoke to a member of the Virgin Media phone support who confirmed 100% that my installation would go ahead yesterday and sent me a text message detailing this. Received an email just an hour to say that it has been postponed to 17th July.
Absolutely ridiculous. Their excuses have been that exterior work needs to happen but by the third time, you must know what and who you need to complete it. Nobody has even come to visit the street.
Vm don't know when things will happen. They guess and if they don't get the documents back or work done by then they reschedule. Yes it's poor but that's how they operate because they don't communicate with their contractors etc.
I'm so sorry to hear of the pushbacks you've been given with your new installation I understand how frustrating this is!
I've just taken a quick look into the account and can see that the appointment date is still set for July - from what I understand, the property had been hard-disconnected previously, which means the cables had been completely removed and our engineers need to carry out a re-pull to get the property re-wired. This job alone can be fairly straightforward but, as advised, permits are required once any external work is due to take place and can cause unpredictable delays.
Unfortunately, as this is over with our engineering team, there isn't much more we are able to do from here in regards to the installation date, I do apologise.
Our pre-installations team have a dedicated number on 0800 052 1734 in the meantime.
