I am currently changing provider, so I cancelled my current broadband contract, which will end on the 1st May, and I would like to order a VirginMedia Fibre broadband (e.g. M100).
From Virgin Broadband page I checked that I can have the QuickStart setup, which should take 4 days to arrive.
I was wondering when should I order this new broadband setup? Should I order a week before my contract end? Or do I need more time for Virgin to set everything up and be sure to have a connection after 1st May? I can't have internet interruptions as I am working from home at the moment, thus I always need to be online.
I would order it as soon as possible just in case of any problems.
Ideally, if you are working from home I wouldn't have cancelled my existing provider until the new connection was in and working. A month extra is often worth it when you can't be without internet access.
(I actually have 2 separate ISPs as when I rang up to cancel they offered me a good deal, so when I have problems with VM I can just switch providers within minutes)
Thank you for talking to me in a private message today.
