I've received my first bill and there was a £35 "other charges". I did a free self install so what would these charges be for?
Does anyone know?

Yes, but I was told it would be waived. All sorted now after going through Virgin chat.
Thanks for the reply.

I think that was already answered in the "All sorted now" reply 😉
Thanks for your reply.
Yes, it would appear that I do need further help. The last message from your agent Krithika said:
Michael, Thank you I have credited back 35 pounds on your account also you can waive that on your online account in next 3 hours after that you can make a payemnets.
This was at 10:01. The credit has not been made. I've paid the outstanding amount minus £35. Can you please ensure this balance is cleared asap in order that I can set up a Direct debit?
Thanks in advance.
The agent has requested the credit as per the message to you and it can take up to 24hours to reflect in your online account.
I was expecting it within 3 hours, as per the agent's message, but will now check back tomorrow to set up the DD.
You're very welcome, let us know if you run into any further issues with setting that up. Have a great weekend.
Ok, it's been over 24 hours since the £35 credit was promised. I also made a quick payment of £109.50 yesterday for the balance of the outstanding amount.
However, my account is still showing £144.50 and I am being threatened with a "disruption" to my services if I don't pay it.
Are you able to confirm that the actual outstanding balance is now £0 and no suspension of my broadband will happen?
Is this kind of delay normal for your payments system?
