I still have no broadband despite five engineer appointments were booked to fix the issue. All of these were cancelled and I was promised a resolution and compensation, but to date I received nothing. The original complaint has been closed and I am still paying via Direct Debit for a service I haven't received since Easter. This evening after testing again my hub and performing all the procedures I have been in a queue for an assistant but am left without help and have waited over two hours without closing the browser - I have bought more data from phone provider giffgaff.
You have already complained to the company in the first instance At least eight weeks have passed since you first complained to them or you have received a deadlock/ ADR letter Your complaint is not in relation to fraud, property damage, discrimination or data protection Your complaint is not the subject of court action and does not exceed £10,000. You understand that it is your responsibility to ensure you have read the Scheme Rules, Guidance notes for customers and process guide (documents available at https://www.cedr.com/consumer/cisas/)
Your complaint to VM would be that they are unable to supply services in a competent manner
The legal basis of your claim is that under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, VM have a duty to provide their service with reasonable skill and care The resolution you want is to be allowed to leave without financial penalty - VM will disagree and you will have a deadlock - then you go to CISAS
They have agreed by email to compensation for the failed engineer visits and have waived any disconnection fees but I haven't received anything yet and have not moved to a new provider. I've had to be abroad for the last 6 weeks but on my return the line was again faulty.
I've waited for help by text with the browser all night and finally was put through an assistant at 7am who turned out to be from Virgin Cable so I had to again phone the helpline and my original complaint was reopened and an engineer visit scheduled for Thursday 22nd.
