Please can someone help me. I have a open complaint with Virgin Media.
I informed Virgin media i Was moving and it was agreed I could start a new contract at the new address rather than cancel all services. I signed up for the Good Friday deal of £29.99 a month for 18 months rising to £59.00. I never received an email confirmation of this.
My house move was delayed numerous times so I called into change the dates for the installation / cancellation and that was all fine. I confirmed each time I was getting the original price.
Finally moved in April 2022 (new build so delayed) and have been charged £59.00 from there on
I have called numerous times to be told sorry & let me sort that for you. You will get credits / email confirmation. This never happens. I have wasted so many hours on hold.
I finally opened a complaint in the hope someone would properly look at my account as it said it would take 28 days to reply. I got an immediate reply the next morning telling me to call the original number.
I have been promised call backs from managers. Someone asked to leave it with him for 7 days so my account would be reviewed and he would call me back personally. Never happened.
The replies from the complaint procedure are automated telling me to phone for a new deal on the same number I have spent hours on
I do not want a new deal. I want the original deal I signed up for.
I was told noone would do the credits over an 18 month period and I needed to be 'repackaged' but no-one seems to be able to actually do this.
I was offered a repackage at a higher amount.
Please can someone look into this. I feel like I'm going round in circles
I have dates of all my calls and references of who I spoke to

Contacted Virgin this morning to discuss downgrading or cancelling my contract and the representative didn’t seem to have any idea what I was on about and upgraded my contract WITHOUT ANY FORM OF AUTHORISATION WHATSOEVER. She then proceeded to tell me that my new bill would be over £30 more than what I was previously paying and would have to pay a £300 exit fee if cancelled before August of next year - this is for a contract that I never wanted in the first place. I’ve opened a complaint with Virgin but is there anyway that I can take this further as I feel completely screwed by them and I’m not happy at all. If they listen to the call they will understand my astonishment.
Thank you for your post and welcome to the community.
I'm very sorry to hear about what happened with regards to the upgrade.
I have taken a look on our side and it looks as though you have spoken with the team already regarding this.
Were they able to advise further?
