Unable to contact Virgin Media

Been trying to contact for the past two weeks to discuss moving home. It's now reached the point where I wish to cancel, yet I am unable to, given the impossible task of contacting Virgin Media. This should task should surely be possible using the website. Virgin seem to deliberately require contacting them. This simple task should not requires hours of my life spent on hold either by useless bot, or phone. 

Do I really have to resort to making contact by phone or by post to cancel a service I signed up for online? There is no technical to excuse that explains their inability to provide an online method of cancelling. Thus, I can only assume that this a deliberate anti-competitive policy reflecting their anti-consumer business practices. 

If a member of staff reads this and can that would be much appreciated and will save me contacting CISAS.

Re: Unable to contact Virgin Media

You can cancel by donkey post (use recorded delivery, address on this page), but also complain to Ofcom, and do it today.  They won't get involved in your complaint, but they monitor VM's performance on complaints and service standards, and by complaining you're helping add to the evidence that will hopefully result in a proper regulatory investigation, since difficulty cancelling is a repeated complaint round here (along with failure to properly process a cancellation request).  I'd suggest you comment in the Ofcom complaint that this fiasco around the supposedly simple business of closing an account is a particularly serious breach of Ofcom General Condition C1.8, which requires that cancelling a contract is quick, simple and easy.
