Virgin moved my account from BT but did not connect thier service
After being contacted by Virgin to take up thier new service in our area we decided to make to change from BT to virgin media.
Virgin media offered us an installation date of 29th January 2019. We waited in allday for an engineer to arrive at 5.30pm. The engineer informed us that the external install team had not been booked for our property and that this was a mistake on virgins part and that he could not complete the installation due to no cable from the road supply to our had been installed.
Whilst at our property at 5.35pm on the 29th the engineer called his supervisor to rearrange but was unable to give us a date but assured us that it would be the next day or at worst the following day. We asked if any change would be made to our existing service and the engineer confirmed that no change would be made until his work was complete and he had to physically arrange this swap over from BT broadband to The new Virgin service.
We have not had a call to rearrange and now our BT service has been taken over by Virgin at Virgins request!
We now have no internet/broadband!
We called virgin and was told that it was not thier fault and the earliest they can come to install the new service is 8th February 2019. We have tried to explain what Virgin have done but locking up our broadband service with them but not providing any service!
We are in complete limbo and need some help.
please if anyone can help with this we would be very grateful

Thanks for your post and welcome to the community.
I'm really sorry to hear of this install experience. Normally all installs do take place on the time and date agreed, however on occasion, other works are needed to be carried out before we install. We do aim to get these works completed asap to minimise any inconvenience caused.
Please also let me know how the new install goes and if you need anything further.
