Please can you help with I am getting with try to get my service installed. It a long story and I have been brief as possible.
Firstly I would like to say your India based call centres are totally useless and unhelpful and in some cases rude.
I booked the install in September as part at the Home Building and Renovation show. However from this point the service I received has been awful.
I booked a tri play package. However I am told no phone line is available due to capacity a Virgin issue and because of this I HAVE to pay MORE I have told multiple time it will be available soon i ask how long no more than a few weeks before I will be available. I told i have to take a 18 month more expensive contract instead of 12 month contract. So i guess Virgin goes by the motto Less is More Money. I would think booking an install in September would be enough notice. I been told on 3 occasion I will get a phone back in-48 hours still not got one back.
I getting to a point no longer want service for Virgin
This needs escalation. VM should not expect customers to pay more for broadband and TV service if they cannot physically provide a landline due to over subscription or location. I understand the marketing logic behind the prices of landline/broadband/TV package being cheaper than a broadband/TV package ONLY if they can provide all three services.
There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't
How long you have to wait will depend on when someone else leaves Virgin & a slot becomes available in the cabinet. Multi-service discounting may seem unfair if you cant get one of the services. But then if VM started giving the same discounting to people with two services as those with three in other areas that would lead to just as many complaints. Its a no win situation.
If a shop offers a discount for three of an item, but there are only two left on the shelf, would you still expect the same discount to be offered for buying two.
Cable customer since 1993. Services: FH TV, Sky Sports & Movies (2xV6), Talk Anytime Phone, VIVID 350, Virgin PAYG Mobile
I can't get a discount for a service Virgin is unable offer, not a service I refuse to have installed so therefore I should be penalised that make total sense to you I guess. So it ok for customer to Pay more for a Virgin media ISSUE. That is a great customer service.
FYI this statement is a only valid if i wanted TWO service I want all THREE "But then if VM started giving the same discounting to people with two services as those with three in other areas that would lead to just as many complaints. Its a no win situation."
Its is a WIN WIN situation for Virgin offer less get more money and a LOSE LOSE for the customer get less pay more money.
