Hello Virgin Media, I am just fed up since last 3-4 months with Virgin Media. I live in Woolwich area, SE18. I joined Virgin Media because I really need good enough speed at my home as we use phones, tablets, play online games on Xbox and use internet on smart tv. I never thought the speed is so frustrating. I can't even play 10 mins video on YouTube, it buffers all the time. I contacted VM customer service few times and they say we will check your line and will be fine in 24-48 hours. And it didn't happen. What a joke! And again I tried to contact them few days later as the broadband didn't improve. And one of the customer service members picked up my phone who knew I contacted them with the same problem the other day. The problem was as you all know we have to enter our account number or our landline number before we talk to them and he didn't listen to me very well and he just put the phone down on me. If there was any maintenance or any improvement going on in the area, they should have let us know beforehand. I am not very happy with VM service. I have checked the internet speed many times on the Speedtest app, it only shows 2-3 Mbps. Internet is so frustrating in the afternoon. We usually use wifi at home in the afternoon after work and I am not satisfied with VM since joined them and it is not acceptable if we don't get the service we paid for. And the bills gone up in November. I guarantee VM is worse than Sky or BT or any other broadbands. I'd give 1 out of 10 for the service I get. I will never use VM once my contract ends. They say SuperFiber 50 and Super Hub 3.0 but you actually get 2-3 Mbps. LOL.
Re: Haha superfibre 50. Actual speed 2-3 mbps. Liars!
It'd be fine if it was for a week or two. That long is so frustrating. We rely so much on broadband these days. We use smart tv, iPhones, iPads, PCs and online streaming. This is not acceptable. I went to VM for a greater speed but didn't know it was actually worse than other cheaper broadbands.
