Changed contract without consent

Tuning in

Our package has been updated/changed without our consent. The worse thing is we've lost our land line and talk more anytime!!! Which I'm fuming with. When I try to dial any number on our land line, it just goes through to Virgin Media.

We seemed to have gained a kids package which we don't need.

On top of this, not only have we lost the land line and talk more anytime, Virgin want to put the bill up by £10 in February they say as we are on a "promotional offer" at the moment! We didn't ask for any of this and haven't contacted Virgin Media for a long time.

Not impressed with this at all and we just want the same package that we had before.

This is details of the email we've been sent:

Your new package now includes:

TV: Maxit TV - Kids Pick - Additional TV Box

We've removed:

TV: Mix TV
Phone: Line Rental - Talk More Anytime

A warm welcome and thanks for posting on our community forums. We're sorry to hear that your current package has been changed with and that you no longer have a working landline. We can certainly understand the disruption and frustration this issue has caused. 

We will certainly have a look at what has happened so we can make sense of your package change.

I will pop you over a private message to take some details and look into this further for you.

Hi Jodi

Thanks for your reply but I rang Virgin Media this morning to find out what is going on with my cut off land line.

The reason they said I lost the land line is because VM are no longer providing the land line in the same way. As a result, I need to have an engineer visit us and install a new superhub router. The land line will then connect into the router.

This is news to me and I had no idea the land line was going to be cut off. The call operator said I should have received emails but I have no emails about my land line being cut off.

Now I have to wait to 5th September for an engineer visit which is not really acceptable (also, I'm not sure how long the line has been cut off for). I'm paying for a service that I don't have.


Can I be compensated for this inconvenience?
