I I'm trying to cancel my contract in the 14 days cooling off period And despite talking to 8 different people and being cut off twice over nearly 2 hours have got nowhere apart from transferred to another person who asks the same questions.
I signed up for Virgin package 2 days ago with 1gig broadband and home phone package and free vodafone SIM card.
I was told the installation would take place in 2 weeks and would be just the case of the engineer fitting a Box.
Yesterday while working I had a knock at the door from 2 engineers with no warning Who wanted to start pulling up my driveway to lay a cable or to run it through a patch of dirt thin one of my wet drains in front of the garage etc. I was never told this was needed, and was told it was a simple installation process not a case of running an extension cord across my property. As it happened they couldn't do anything as there tools didn't work.
Had I known this I wouldn't have taken the contract.
I called to cancel as its 2 days into my 14 day cooling off.period and nobody cares at all. They ask the same questions about why then pass me to someone else and I get cut off.
The last person said they'd action this bit couldnt answer about whether i needed to recontact my old provider or whether you would do that as per right to coolingg off. They also Said they would have to put me through to o2 to sort the phone out then when I asked her for a reference for her work, she transferred me to 02 without giving any...who cut me off. I have no paperwork from you about o2 yet so can't call them anyway.
How am I supposed to easily cancel in 14 days?! I have 2 disabled children, work full time and don't have time to waste calling you again and again for something that should be easy.
