I recently moved house... October 21 and VM keeps lying to me about my installation date it was November, December then January and now it's February by the time they get around to me my contract will be up... Should I just cancel my contract with them? I just can't take anymore I changed my schedule took time off from work and they keep canceling on me. I feel VM is in breach of contract. What do you guys advice me to do?
Depends. What is the reason for delay? If it’s for digging etc then that’s due to your local authority.

Well...they won't say and they actually sent people over to collect the router because quote "we was told that you cancelled" So I have no clue what s going on, the people across the street have VM so I don't know about digging.... they keep telling me on the phone they will come by etc...at this point I think they don't care.
Update, today 22 of January a engineering crew showed up and they said there is "No way we can get you internet, buddy" and he suggested that I should call VM and I did....the first time I called the guy was "we shall get the bottom of this" and proceeds to put me on hold and then hangs up..nice! The second person puts me on hold and then connects me to the construction team...and guess what? They don't work weekends 😔 and then hangs up and finally 😀 the third person tells me that I should ignore the engineering crew because my installation date is on the 26 of January.... What's going VM? You owe me the time I took off to wait for you or at least the 2 hours of waiting on the phone! It's been a long time VM ! And also I cheched the planning permissions at the Council no mention of VM or any Construction team for the whole street. Get your act together VM!
It does sound very much like they are not going to install for you. It's not uncommon for the installation to be abandoned if it would cost Virgin more than they think your business is worth. And in these cases, because they have virtually no internal communications or record keeping the potential customer is usually just left hanging.
Hi @Dneagu87, thanks for your post although I'm sorry to hear of your difficulties getting your installation sorted.
Due to the delay, we can get a complaint raised up regarding this and pass over to the pre-installs team for them to look further into.
To do this we will need to confirm some information with you and pass data protection. I have sent you a private message regarding this. Just click on the little plum envelope at the top right-hand side of the page to access your inbox.
Please expect this to arrive within the next minute or so.
