Quick start broadband didn’t work. How do I book a technician?

Hello,

please could someone help me. I have tried to contact virgin to book a technician as I was told quick start would work and is available but I can not find the correct cable anywhere, so really need to book a technician asap as I work from home so really need this sorted soon. I was told the quick start was fine for my address, but doesn’t seem to be the case. I can’t seem to get through on the phone lines at all. Is there any other way to book a technician?

see this...

OPTIONS FOR CONTACTING VM

There are a few options. Firstly call it in on 150 (VM Phone - free) or 0345 454 1111 (any other phone - national rate). Use option 2 (faults), dont press any other buttons when offered and you should be in the queue for the next agent.

Or try the Pre-installation and delivery team on.. 0800 052 1734. 

Or try options 1,1,4,4, “thinking of leaving” - they usually pick those calls up quickly and the retentions are UK based and then transfer you to the appropriate queue (or cut you off !).

Calling at 08.00 midweek (09.00 Sun) is the best time to get through quickly at busy/closed times you may get redirected to offshore - hence calling early is best.


If you get cut off after an automated reboot cycle, just call back in a couple of minutes as the system should know that you have just been on and it hasn’t helped and put you in the queue.

You can also text them on  You can text VM on 0753 305 1809 include account name/number and what the issue is, there is also a “Chat” option on their website - but note that replies usually take longer.

Or you can speak to the team on WhatsApp by logging into your online account via a mobile handset and there will be a link to speak to VM by Whats App. 

You could also try the freephone number 0800 052 0422 to discuss your account and see if that gets you there

FINALLY… A VM person will pick this up on here and respond, but it can take a few days for them to get here.
