I noticed this evening that my phone line is dead, there is no dial tone and the phone handset is displaying a message to indicate an issue with the line. I selected the option to run a test through the online account area on the Virgin Media website, which came back stating no issue found but then gave me an option to book a technician, which I have done so.
This only happened just a a month ago, and I ended up having to have a re-pull of the cable from the street cabinet to my home. It took nearly 2 weeks for this to be done, and when it was, the job was done badly and without me being present due to the technician coming outside of the allocated appointment time. I have an open complaint regarding this (see my post on the Account Issues board) to which Virgin Media have not responded to yet despite customer services promising an initial response within 10 days.
My confidence in Virgin Media as a service provide has dropped even further now and I'm beginning to wonder if I should move to a provider that can provide a better service all around. After all it wouldnt be difficult after my recent experience of VIrgin Media.
Just an update on this. Had a technician visit today and my phone line is now working again. I asked what the issue was and he indicated that when the new cable was run in it hadn't been secured properly within the street cabinet and had come loose. He appeared to agree that the installation had been done badly.
Finally some good experience of Virgin Media, however after nearly four weeks I am still waiting for someone to contact me regarding my complaint.
