Moving Internal Wall Box (Network and Phone Ports)
Please can someone kindly give me the correct answer.
I recently spoke to a Virgin Media sales person to upgrade my service from M100 to 1Gig (will be receiving my new hub later this week) on the basis that it was possible for VM to move my internal wall box (network and phone ports) from its existing location (front wall) to another location (side wall) in order that the router can sit near the television (central chimney breast) without having unsightly cables or trunking across the room. They told me to call the Technical Team and this could be booked in without a problem.
After phoning them, being put on hold for an eternity, eventually getting through and getting cut off twice during the triage process, I started to research online and understand that Virgin Media cannot offer this service (I assume due to COVID restrictions) which was historically offered at £99 flat rate for a non-fault call out.
Is this really true that I was given incorrect info? And secondly, can someone advise when this service may be resumed (now lockdown is being eased)?

if you did this within the last 14 days then ring retentions - only speak to the UK and tell them you are unhappy and that you are seriously considering giving 30 days notice - that may well concentrate minds - they are not doing call outs but you may get a tech booked for the future foc or they may bend - you dont know unless you ask
dial 150 or 0345 454 1111 and follow the prompts to - 'thinking of leaving us' - dont worry about that they do much more - open 8am -10pm 7 days a week - should take you to a UK call centre
as to sales not know the rules - sales make it up as they go on to get the order - thats all that matters to them
