Hi , have recently received new costings as my contact has come to an end ( increased by 100% plus ). Spoke to customer services who only offered a reduction in services at a slightly reduced new price . So gave 30 days notice as there are numerous other options available. was phone by retentions a few days later who re looked at my package and provided a reduced package at a marginally increased rate. Which I agreed to. Transpires that after a week the offer was apparently invalid and not actioned.They spoke to the agent who in turn is having to speak to his manager. My question would be the disconnection is still proceeding on the 3rd July , ideally don’t want to leave , but can not be without broadband , how long do these things take to resolve , if at all . Will need to look at another supplier but time is becoming an issue , any thoughts would be appreciated.
Retentions offers, outbound especially, are very often "of the moment" and if the price suits you then the Martin Lewis theory of "ask the cat and call back later" doesn't always work with VM. If "inbound" retentions offer doesn't meet your needs and you've served notice, then you are now playing a lottery with outbound retentions and you must be prepared to carry through with that notice if your numbers don't come up, as it were.
In your case, it sounds like you need to set a price that you are prepared to pay, and a price you'd like to pay - and if VM won't match those prices for your chosen combinations, start with the process of having an alternative supplier/connection being installed. Check the cancellation policy of that alternative supplier and be very aware of when the point of no return is.
