Cannot Cancel virgin media

I called to cancel my contract after waiting 30 minutes and speaking to someone, he tried to persuade me to stay and when I would not he cut me off.

I expect there are retention targets which is pretty unacceptable.

The reason I am leaving is the customer service so  it a surprise that this is now happening.

How do I cancel, anyone help?

Re: Cannot Cancel virgin media

By post.

Use recorded post, don't expect any confirmation, and be clear on the date you want services to cease (allowing that your 30 days notice becomes active when VM get the letter, not when you post it).  Leave the direct debit in place until the dust has fully settled, and when you get the equipment return package, make sure you get a send receipt.

Re: Cannot Cancel virgin media

Appreciate the detail from Andruser, I've followed just that - it's more laborious than (one would normally expect) a simple phone conversation but I've been irritated enough with silent/disconnected calls after long waits to follow through and do it this way with hard copies of everything.
