Reported no service late Dec. First engineer called 07.01 and did nothing but comfirm problem was not due to our equipment. Next day I get an email saying problem is fixed and that I will get two days compensation. Problem not fixed!!!
Since then we have had one visit missed, three more engineer visits, one completely out of the blue and yet we are still without our landline. Checking my Virgin account there is an odd outsatnding appointment 27.01 for broadband, which is working but nothing new about the phone.
Questions for Virgin:
When will you fix my phone?
Why did you claim it was fixed when it was not?
Will I get compenstion from the period immediately after the two days you said I was without service, which still continues to this day?
Hi MarkyPB, thanks for the message and sorry to hear that you were having issues with the landline we have looked into this and doesn't look like there is an issue, can you confirm if this is the case or you still need assistance with this? ^Chris
Thanks so much for popping back with your update - glad that everything is working ok for you once again.
With a total loss of telephone, the auto compensation will be added for any loss 2 full working days from registering the loss of service to us; this will be done automatically within a few days of the issue being resolved and should appear on your next bill 🙂
I only asked because on 8 Jan after the first engineer had been I received an email claiming the matter was resolved (it had not) and commenting about the compensation. On our Jan bill (to 15.01) it gives a credit for only two days up to 7 Jan!
I have numerous screen prints of subsequent appointments (one missed) and we were visited three or four (one totally unexpected) times by engineers who until the one last week failed to fix the problem.
As far as I am concerned the problem that was reported late Dec./early Jan. was only resolved on 3 Feb. and would expect the compensation to cover the whole period from the original date following the date the fault was reported.My worry is that because the Jan. bill only includes two days compensation some fictitious other date will be used by Virgin.
