I noticed you were first informed of the ticket for congestion F004131820 back on the 20th of January, have you been claiming your loss of service credit?
F004131820 was due for review 06/04/16. Obviously this date has passed by (as they always do) and now you are being told 31st August for the next review.
These over utilisation 'outages' take many many months / years to be resolved, if at all!
As well as claiming your monthly loss of service credit you can make an official complaint in writing to VM via email http://www.virginmedia.com/customers/contact/ Choose the topic 'Something else' then 'making a complaint' select 'email us' Fill out the online form. Detail your complaint and include the reference F004131820
----------------------------------------------------------- I am in an OVER UTILISED VIRGIN MEDIA AREA - poor speeds of 0.3Mbps to 4Mbps every evening. Contention reference "F002896495", has now become F004952644. Ongoing since March 2014. 17 review dates... Next Review JUNE 2018
I've had basically what you have explained since November/December last year and Virgin still haven't sorted the problem. It's okay tough because they knock £5 off my £35 bill every month...../sarcasm.....and to add to that they don't reply to my forum posts, nor my private messages. They had reviewed the fault in June but then decided they're not sure if it's worth fixing so they're reviewing it again next month.
Just do what the majority of people are doing and leave. Virgin were once a good company but theyre too focused on growth now rather than looking after their existing customers. Customer service is non-existant along with the actual service you pay to use.
Any chance you can replace the hamster on the wheel again? Seem to be down to anywhere between 3 and 20Mb down on my premium 200Mb service that is costing me over 100 quid a month. Sort it, or I'm off to Sky.
Thanks for taking the time to post back on the community.
I've taken a look at your connection and can see the high peak time traffic fault in your area. Our networks team are investigating the problem and are improving bandwidth and performance to help with this issue. The reference number is F004729224 and with a review date of 28th December.
One of my colleagues will be in touch shortly with more information in regards to this issue.
I know this is frustrating to say the least and I am sorry for the inconvenience caused.
Sorry to hear you're still having problems. The fault in your area is still on-going but in addition to this, your downstream power levels are out of range so I'll need to arrange for an engineer to call around to look into this further.
