I've been having the green light on the router for a couple of days already. The status check shows no fault in my area (nw6), can someone confirm it so that I can request an engineer visit? Also, it seems I'm not able to get through support over the phone, the call just drops after the personal pin input, so any suggestion on an alternative way to book a visit would be appreciated.
Hi it sounds like you are inputting your pin incorrectly, a virgin person will respond on here but it may take 3 or 4 days, then you will have to confirm personal details, phoning is the best option. Regards Micky
Hi I know it's frustrating, but if you ignore the pin request the phone system should recognise that you are trying to get through, 150 free from a virgin phone or 0345 454 1111 from any other phone, as I said earlier it's dropping because it doesn't recognise the pin you are inputting, also phone 0800 561 0061 that is the virgin service status number.Regards Micky
As well as the “check service” weblink at the top of this forum board, there is also a Service Status number 0800 561 0061 which usually tells you of local issues, down to postcode level (that might even not yet be listed on the Service Status web page) that may give you more info. If nothing shows there call it in and see what they say when they test your connection and if possible get a fault reference number. This should also start your "compensation "timer". https://www.virginmedia.com/help/automatic-compensation

In the end it did show a fault in the area, but it's a bit annoying that it also showed up yesterday, was marked as resolved and then not fixed. Seems like the perfect way to dodge the automatic compensation mechanism... I just hope they don't keep renewing it every day.
