Downgrading package, nightmare!

Went through retentions to downgrade my package and reduce bill from £76.99 to £53.99. All agreed and text sent to me asking for confirmation to continue. I replied yes and received a text saying it would be sorted, 21st March.

All was agreed, 1 month later receive the bill, this was £76.99.

20th April. Called them to discuss and to resolve (as some of you are aware, trying to resolve issues with Virgin Media over the phone is a nightmare.). I was told they had to get a verification code from another department and this hadn’t been sorted yet, it will be sorted in 2 days.

1 month later, bill received for £76.99, aaaaaahhhhh!

18th May. Called them again to discuss, cut off, probably because it was too much hassle for someone to deal with.

I called again. Lady that handled the issue has managed to resolve all outstanding issues (we will have to wait & see.). She also identified that the original offer was for 50mb broadband, not possible to run V6 box on 50mb?

Anyway, all may be resolved now.

Questions

Why is it so difficult for Virgin Media to resolve these simple billing and package change issues?

Why do you have a contact symbol on the bottom of every bill that doesn’t work?

Re: Downgrading package, nightmare!

And now they have sent me an email saying what my new package price will be, £73.50!!!! AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!

on the phone it was agreed to be £53.99.

**bleep** - what the hell is going on Virgin Media, you really need to get your act together or you will be losing a customer of 20+ years!

Can somebody please call me to sort this out, I have wasted another 1hr 15mins this morning trying to sort this.

Call backs cannot be arranged through here, neither can billing issues. Sorry to say your only option is to phone.

Re: Downgrading package, nightmare!

Speaking to Virgin Media on the phone!

And What a complete waste of time that has proved to be over the last 20 years.

Unfortunately I have no choice but to call them again and slowly pull my own teeth out!
