Totally disconnected in BS7

Dear all, 

I have been totally cut off since 3pm Thursday and Virgin Media do not seem to care. 

The Internet to my cable modem went down at 14:55 on Thursday. On Friday lunchtime I chatted on WhatsApp with a VM representative who said:

"As per our record shows the issue is out side the premises where our engineer are working on it to resolve the issue for you. I can see the issue will be resolved with in 24 hours and you will be compensated for the loss of services accordingly. If you seem you have not been compensated you can contact us and our team will help you on the compensation."

I have not seen any improvement after 30 hours and most concerningly the status checker says everything is fine - my hub can be reached and there are no network problems.

Please can anyone help?

Re: Totally disconnected in BS7

Try the “free & automated” Service Status number - 0800 561 0061 - which usually gives the most up to date info. and tells you of more local issues down to postcode level.

You can also start the "compensation timer" if it shows as a fault on there

Re: Totally disconnected in BS7

Thanks John.

The phone service apologies for a temporary fault in my postcode and offers no time frame for solving the problem.

Still no connection.

Re: Totally disconnected in BS7

Update - connectivity restored at 15:13 yesterday. No activity needed on my part (no final router reset etc). So - a total of 4 days outage.

Re: Totally disconnected in BS7

Good Morning @EddyHall, thanks for the update on Tuesday

I've been able to look into the local area and there doesn't appear to be a fault in the local area currently.

How is the connection currently performing?

Kindest regards,

David_Bn

Re: Totally disconnected in BS7

Hi David,

No disconnections were registered in the past day (according to my SamKnows box).

DL = 150Mbps, UL = 15.6Mpbs, Latency 12.7ms, packet loss = 0.00115%

So, I am getting 75% of what I pay for but this is apparently within the tolerance bracket for Virgin Media :shrug:. So my connection is performing as expected after the 4 days of downtime; thank you for following up.

Eddy
