I have odd blackouts the last 2 weeks always around 7pm internet just cuts off at random days, I think it's due to them updating the cables there's engineers near every box in my area doing road works. I need to contact vm when it happens when I have no cs box connected. It normally happens when I'm getting ready for work lol

Yeah the network infrastructure is in need of serious upgrade but as pablo has said ring them up and give them grief and get money knocked off etc (y)
Oh and dont even get me started on new customer deals that they offer and leave us loyal customers out to the wolves we could be here all day and makes my blood boil ffs

it can take a while to appear. if not contact top cash back with your order details and they can chase it up

ive just told them the special offer i had (free tivo) is no longer wanted. guy says "the price will go up" i said ok i will sort a bt or plusnet deal and then cancel. i also said do not contact me to offer a better deal. new customers only on those deals so i will have to leave to become a new customer. crazy!

Yeah just wait for the million calls from retensions with different offers once you put in a service cancellation notice :ROFLMAO: ive been helping out old lady who lives near me because she has relatives who live in france and she wanted broadband to do live video calling on skype etc.
She only had basic phone line but by the time her bill came it was about £65 for the calls etc.
Retensions rang a few times and finally got her 200mb broadband and phoneline for £32 month (y)
