My phoneline went dead early June, so I filled in the General Email Form reporting the fault. http://help2.virginmedia.com/assets/html/customer_feedback/customer_feedback_querytype_1.html

My brother (another VM customer) phoned them on my behalf and a repair date was set for a week later. I stayed in all day, but the engineer didn't show, so my brother called them again and an engineer was arranged for 5pm the next day. As it happens, one was in the area earlier than that so he fixed the problem in the green box and I my line was back in minutes.

I called VM and was told that all I would get was a pro-rata reduction in my 3for30 bill the next month... no compo, no apology, no explanation.

Today I have received an email, well over a month after filling in the General Email Form.

You cant phone on a dead phoneline, but the annoying thing about virginmedia is that it costs so much to call them so you cant ring them from a mobile either. VM is crap! :D
