Virgin media package installed 2 days ago,and all seems ok.Package is the oomph bundle that seems to be top of the range,all singing and dancing version.On requesting the package,all advertising indicated that a free set up and instalation,would be included ,clearly indicating a saving of £35.00.This seems to have been a time limited offer ending 23 June.As i agreed to the offer 10 June,with an original installation date of 22 June,I was under the impression that I would Qualify for this discount.I also received a discount offer of £50.00 off fist bill.Job a gud un me thinks.
Then the problems start.Firstly installaion date put back 1 week to 29 June.Not a great problem but a bit of inconveinient rearranging had to be done.Then I receive contract that indicated £50 rebate applied,luvly jubly,but £35 ACTIVATION fee added,therefore reducing the rebate to £15.
To me,this £35 fee seems to be the £35 fee that on the initial sign up advertising was clearly indicated as a saving on the package and free of charge.
