Low speed continuously

Hi, have been with Virgin for ages now. Paying for package with 150mbps. Since December 2016 having problem with speed it doesn't go higher than 4-9 Mbps and more often 0.2-0.9 Mbps. Had three engineers visits after it works brilliant for couple weeks then start playing again. Was called to virgin so many times now and last time was told there is a problem in area and it cannot be fixed till April. If anyone has the same problem in Medway? It is unbelievable to pay for 150 Mbps speed and receive 0.2mbps. Thinking to leave virgin as we can do nothing with that speed...

Re: Low speed continuously

Hi,

We've had the same problem in Manchester now for over 12 months, they kept telling us they were doing upgrades in the area and giving us a completion date of a month or so in the future. Been putting off leaving for the hassle etc. but after 12 months of 0-2mps speeds we've had enough. They said it is only when demand is high, so basically our internet drops off every evening and most of the weekend.

They have offered us discounts during the work, but 20% off a high bill is still 80% too much for poor service.

I'd advise you to leave now before you get as fed up as us.

M&M

Re: Low speed continuously

Hi IrinaMit,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Really sorry to hear you're experiencing speed issues.

 

I've located your account and I can see an issue with the network in your area affecting speeds at peak times - Ref.(F004966901). Our technicians are working to get this resolved and have set a review date of 12th April 2017.

 

I'm really sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

All the best

 

Josh

Re: Low speed continuously

Thank you very much for reply. I can understand if we would have problem only at peak times. We do have low speed most of the time. Even in the daytime workdays. Will wait till that date anyway and then decide what to do if it the same probably will have to move. As it is for a long time now. We cannot even go online to check email. And I still pay lots of money for not having even a quarter of what is paying for... that is very sad that such a big company cannot even notify clients of a problem and make a discount as they don't provide service as they have to. I had to call so many times before I was told there is a problem. And all I was offered is less than half discount of one month. When it is not one month when we had that problem. And question is not in discount the question is we don't have internet and child cannot do home work. And at the same time I do receive calls from virgin with offer to go for 200 Mbps and pay more money, advising that probably it is too much equipment is connected to internet the same time and we need to upgrade our speed. It is funny, very very funny as instead of apology and repair company trying to make more out of customers.

Thanks for posting back here.

 

I've taken a look at the fault ticket and our engineers are still working on this to improve bandwidth with a review date of 12th May.

 

Sorry for the delay.
