Missold contract

On our wavelength

After a long wait on phone, I spoke to someone about failure to provide a new hub because the landline is being switched off. Not easy as the person's English was appalling with a lot of background noise. Took a lot of please repeat that to get anywhere.

He said he'd get a new hub out to me (but I've no idea when)

Then said I can get a new contract for only £65/month (it's currently £85) and would I would be happy to continue. Said yes. Then he said having problems activating so it'll be a £75/month contract, then said he's having problems setting that up so he'll transfer me to customer accounts (or something similar) but after waiting another 15 mins (after already spending hour on phone) I gave up as it was time for dinner.

Got an email saying my contract has changed and that, after 19 months, it'll be either £131 or £156/month. wth. Oh, and there's a £35 set up fee for the privilege. 

Went into MyVirginMedia and see something has changed, including loss of landline. I don't want this and would prefer to stay with current contract.

How can I get this actioned without being moved around various depts spending hours on phone trying to understand people who can't speak English English
