Our phone line has been dead since Friday afternoon. Nothing at all, apart from a very random phone call from someone on Saturday that was just the phone ringing, me answering it, no-one being there, me hanging up and then it immediately ringing again.
I’ve been trying now since 7am this morning to sort this out, nearly two hours later I am extremely annoyed.
The website says the phone line is either working fine on tests or is inconclusive and I need to phone you. So far, I’ve been holding for 50 minutes. Marvellous service.
I’ve tried booking online. One slot, ONE for the whole week available - seriously - on Wednesday afternoon. Go through the booking process, get right to the end and then it says the appointment slot is not available. Funny, how I can then restart the booking process again and it shows the same slot.
Phoning then offered the same slot, getting right to the end and then it saying ‘there is a problem with the system.’
How the hell is anyone supposed to get support from you? I’ve been with you for 24 years now. When you work, you’re brilliant. When you go wrong, you’re an absolute disgrace at fixing things.
So here’s today’s bit of the saga. After speaking to customer services, the engineer came yesterday and there was no reply. I have security camera footage that proves that nobody came to my house yesterday at any point, other than the postman, who i doubt doubles up as a Virgin engineer. I now have to wait until Friday for a new visit.
Why - does the engineer not call the customer if they’re supposedly not in. The phone number is on the job, - does the engineer not have a ‘Sorry, we were out’ card that they can leave, that would have also proved whether or not they came - does nobody at Virgin give the first stuff about this?
Answer to the last point - I’m not a new customer, I’m someone who’s been with you for 24 years that you know you can hold over a barrel as your internet service is the best in the area by a long shot,
