I am sorry to hear that the line still isn't working due to the outage. I have taken a look to see what the latest is and I can see the current estimated fix time is set for 29/11/2018 12:00:00.
I have been having a closer look into the ticket to see what other information I could gather, unfortunately there isn't any new information other than our engineering team are working hard to resolve this as soon as they can.
I will keep an eye on this and update you as soon as anything new comes in other than a new fix time.
I am sorry for the ongoing nature of the fault and I hope we'll have this fixed very soon.

Since October 18th I have been receiving text messages from VM giving a "service update" and an estimated time for the reapir to be done. The first three said that an engineer was "on site" and "working to fix" the problem. Since then the message has changed to "an engineer is on their[sic] way"..
The fix is usually predicted for later on the same day, or some time the next day. And how many of these service updates have I received in the last forty days? Forty-eight!.
Well, I am also in the UB3 area and haven't had a phoneline for 9 WEEKS!!!
My parents are in UB4 area and haven't had a phone line for 5 weeks!!
I have called numerous times and been cut-off when I tell them what the issue is, spoken to rudely and told that my query has been sent to deadlock (whatever that is) and then receive a letter to say that the fault has been corrected. It's beyond a joke!
Have had to buy more mobile data, Virgin are still taking money from my account for this service and meanwhile I get a letter to say that they are increasing my monthly installment - this is becoming comical.
My house alarm is also connected to the phone line so am now without security which is very unnerving. And I am paying for that service on a monthly basis too but not being able to receive the service due to no phone line!! This is more than just a lack of communication service, this is about security too.
Spent an hour on the phone last week, being passed from one department to another and the only explanation I am getting is that it will be resolved in 2 days which is exactly the same as the text message notification, of which I now have in excess of 90!
The last update said the standard text: Virgin Media Outage Update - Descirption: Service Update. Telephone fault F006615416. The latest update we have is: We have identified the problem and an engineer is on theri way. The estimated repair time is now: 04/12/2018 12:00:00.
- Well it still isn't fixed and I haven't had any further update text messages
No one I have spoken to at Virgin Media seems to know what the issue is?
What on earth is going on Virgin Media? What is actually the issue? When realistically are we going to get a fix to the issue?
