Cabling work - dragging on

Hello,

I have joined since the 24th of March, and I keep getting engineers visiting and saying the same thing, that they need to do some cabling works outside, they say someone is coming tomorrow morning then no one comes.

Happened twice, and now I have yet another engineer visit on the 16th, who will say the same thing? Contact centre is very unhelpful and extremely dodgy. I was given a number for technical support, 08000525738, but when I called she wasn't helpful at all, and both calls keep talking over me, it feels like they are fed up before they hear what the issue is. They just keep repeating 16th the engineer is coming.

I joined VM when it first introduced fibre broadband and left in under a month due to horrible service. It has been over 10 years now, I have been with BT and happy with them, VM just offered a lot faster internet and I was hoping after almost 10 years, things have changed...why can't I just get a date where everything is clear. There is no webchat, I talk to a useless robot. Phone is useless, I am getting bombarded by emails for feedback yet no email to raise my frustration with...£68 a month...and this service...?

Re: Cabling work - dragging on

Hi @AliAli,

Thank you for your post, and welcome to our community forums. We're here to help.

I am really sorry to hear you've been facing these ongoing issues. Is this regarding an installation issue, or are you facing a technical fault with your services?

I can also see that you've mentioned that you have an engineer visit scheduled and booked for today. Please let us know how that goes and if you need any further assistance following their visit.

Thanks,

Re: Cabling work - dragging on

Hi Zack, 

it's an installation issue, so I'm still using BT broadband since I joined Vigin.

As predicted nothing on the 16th, even though I was told by two people over the phone it will be the 16th.

Re: Cabling work - dragging on

I have called 3 times now since my post. Every single time, every single time they say someone is coming tomorrow. I asked to speak to someone more senior, no one is available. I asked for a formal email I can email to, was told to look through the website, I can't find an email to email to. I got an email asking me to pay my bill...I haven't used virgin internet for 5 weeks.  This is a horrible decision I took and I regret every minute of it. I really hoped the service did change after so many years....it is getting extremely frustrating with all the lies and bs that keeps getting thrown at me. Just tell me you have to wait one year, fine i'll wait. Don't tell me tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow everytime I call, then ask me to pay the bill, and I haven't used the service... it's not even connected!

Re: Cabling work - dragging on

Surprise surprise, tomorrow is here, almost 5pm, nothing. No communication, no emails, no phone call, no explanation.

I have never in my entire life been through such experience, I understand once, I understand twice, sometimes things go really wrong, 3 times because of pandemic, sure, 4 times...5 times...how many times do I have to call, how many times do I have to post.

Who is in charge? Who is responsible? Where can I speak to anyone formally? Is there anyone senior who can speak to me from a business point of view rather than just reading what's written on the screen...I am getting extremely close to just cancelling the service...
