Really hoping someone from virgin can help me, because if not I'm disconnecting today.
I was mis-sold my package - I was promised all activation & connection fees would be waived by the door step seller (that was the only reason I signed up). Even have that written on my contract. Surprise surprise, my first bill was taken INCLUDING the fees that weren't supposed to be there. And I have been fighting to get my £120 back ever since. I'm now going through trading standards.
I have also had awful service from the start. I'm a gamer and suffer from the same lag, latency and ping spikes that everyone with the crappy Superhub 3 gets.
Anyway, last week my Hub 3 got ridiculously hot, sparked and died. I rang Virgin and was promised an engineer the next day, so I closed my shop and waited at home. Guess what?? No engineer.
Rang virgin again - said they would post a hub 3, next day delivery. Guess what?? Nothing arrived.
I run part of my business from home, so I'm losing money with no internet. So in desperation I got my old hub 2 out - and have now spent 2 full days on the phone speaking to agent after agent trying to get the Mac address activated.
One of them said they'd only been there a week and asked me if I knew how to do it!!
Another one said it could only be done by putting in a request to the IT department which would take 4 - 7 days, but the next person said there was no IT department.
I do networking myself. I use my own Asus RT-AC88U router, and the hub in modem mode. I'm not an idiot. I know they can connect my old hub 2.
I'm currently out of contract with you, and willing to sign up for another 12 months, but only if this hub 2 gets connected TODAY. I've never had any problems with my hub 2, I've had 3 hub 3's and all have been awful. I do not want another one.
Everyone knows the Hub 3 has problems with the Puma 6 chip, even your own engineers have told me how bad it is. So please, please just connect my hub 2, I NEED to get work done tonight or I will lose hundreds of pounds.
If this doesn't get resolved today I will be leaving. I will also take my story, along with every recorded phone call over the last year and going to Watchdog, trading standards and everywhere else that will listen. It's not just me having these problems and people don't deserve to be treated like this.
