Thanks Lianne. How do I go about getting in touch regarding this. I have emailed the original person who agreed my contract. They said that if there were further problems then I should contact them and they would look into it. They haven't responded to my mail. If I mail via your website it takes weeks to get a reply. If I go via faults they take me through the usual rebooting procedure.
not being at all skeptical but fault F002039268 has a current fix time of 05/12/2012. we had the same 'fault last year and as preiously stated it magically gets fixed at this time of year after being put back many times.
I suspect we will see the same again this year. it will be declaired fixed again around this date. Coinscidentally this is when the students go home for christmas. If it follows the same pattern as last year, it gets better between then and when the kids break up, its **bleep** again when everyone is home for christmas (as expected) then gets better for a week untill students back about jan 14th ish.
i called to ask about cancelling contract and apprently i have to pay. not exactly fair if i want out as im consistantly not getting what i pay for. Do any of the virgin mods on here know if that can be waived so at least i can leave feels very bound in paying for a service i would have to pay to leave early. I must admit it have had a refund on one month so far due to this fault, but id just like internet that works no more chasing every month and what feels like begging to get the service i pay for.
Wookey, I admire your patience and ringing them up. I lodged a complaint via their website and had no contact from them whatsoever. I got my bill right on time though and that was followed up by a letter telling me my package had gone up (3 months after signing up for 12 months). It did say in the letter that I'm still getting great value though Which was a relief. The connection is a bit better but for gaming its still useless due to massive dropouts. I've also been having a problem with my phone on the sure signal box. Vodafone (unlike virgin) have been helpfDurand did a test on all my kit. The unstable connection is the problem as it spikes from 56kb to 30 meg and back again and it throws the sure signal box out ie dropping calls etc. They told me to turn off the sure signal box and see how things went. No dropped calls at all. Virgin strike again. Hope you get your matter resolved.
That ticket needs to stay open. This morning my "new improved double speed" 30mb connection was bouncing around the 2mb mark. Whatever has been done has made it very very spikey. Gaming is impossible as the servers match to the connection at the start of the game. Once the game starts it can drop from 30 to 1 which ends the game.
