This is simply to complain about one of the worst customer service experiences I've had in recent times which hopefully will motivate Virgin Media to dramatically improve their service. The reason for my call was because I wasn't able to register to My Virgin Media. Below a summary of issues encountered:
1. Over 40mins to reach customer service after an infinite list of questions to reply to to the automated voice.
2. While my contract had my correct name and last name, Virgin discovered that they had a different last name in their system, hence the reason why I wasn't able to register.
3. Impossible to change name in the system over the phone even by answering security questions or providing information required.
4. Need to fill in and send an online form, after which it will require up to 48 hours for the name change (although my name has never changed).
I would have expected Virgin to solve the problem from their end (since it orginated after their mistake) but I was shocked when told I had to request for a name change via email to provide the right information. Poor service, poor pro-activity, poor problem-solving.
