I just wanted to clarify, even though I ordered virgin media about 6 weeks ago it wasn't installed and the service didn't start until last Wednesday 23rd October, therefore am I correct in thinking I have 14 days from that day to exercise my statutory right to cancel?
I was already pee'd off, at having to set a stronger password on the router which forced me to go around the house switching all the smart devices to the new network as the hub wouldn't allow me to retain the same SSID and password as my previous router. But then today I had the unfortunate experience of actually speaking to someone called Romeo from customer services, it definitely wasn't love at first sight.
It was a ridiculous computer says no-esque conversation, basically I've never received an email from virgin throughout, therefore I assume the sales person spelt my name wrong which also means they spelt my email address wrong. This is now a problem because in order to set up an online account I need to know how to spell my surname. So I thought, customer services can tell me how they have spelt it, but apparently not. Despite the fact I passed through security questions, including bank details, I was told by Romeo that he couldn't spell my surname for me. He couldn't even tell me his surname, I guess virgin have a no surnames policy. He couldn't tell me his employee number, he couldn't put me through to his manager. In fact, after 30 minutes of waiting on hold for the pleasure of Romeo's company, he couldn't do anything except suggest I wait for my first bill which of course will never arrive, but this point was lost on poor Romeo. I then considered what if I had a real problem and needed actual help and that thought was quickly followed by good bye virgin, it's been a blast, in the destructive sense.
