I was scheduled for an installation for this Friday, I had booked it on the 10th December and that was the earliest I could get which wasn't ideal as I am working from home and have no broadband at my property. Yesterday I got a text message claiming to be from Virgin saying that my installation is on hold due to extra work required outside of my property. However no information about what work is required, when it is scheduled and when my installation is likely to take place. At a loss as to how to get more information from Virgin Media. I can't continue using 4G indefinitely.
You are unlikely to get any more information if it's a construction issue, as the new date won't even be allocated until the construction has taken place by outside contractors. Trying to get information from these outside contractors is worse than pulling teeth.
This could mean you are looking at a delay of between 2 and 8 weeks.
If you can get reasonable 4G coverage then this may be a good option even for an extended (unknown) duration. There are quite a number of reasonable unlimited mobile data deals out there if you don't already have one. Some are even without contract or 1 month duration. If you're not paying for VM BB then you may not lose out.
