Registering loss of fixed line service
 
My phone line went dead and my broadband has been going on and off for days. I suspect cityfibre have damaged the underground cable going into my house as they put fibre optic in my street recently. I reported the fault using my neighbour's landline, but I am wondering if I need to phone another number to register loss of service or does reporting it automatically register it? Virgin said there is a fault on my line and the engineer will come on friday.

It is automatically registered when you report the fault.

The engineer is coming tomorrow and out of the blue the phone started working again, although virgin confirmed there was a fault when they ran line checks.
Should I cancel the engineer and is there a charge for cancelling?

If you are happy that it's working, cancel. There is no charge for cancelling.

I will ask him to check the green box outside as the doors have been blowing open sometimes.

Best to let the engineer check out the connection especially as VM registered a fault. Intermittent faults have a habit of becoming permanent if not nipped in the bud
