Hope this is the correct board, this forum is as confusing as virgins own site 🙄
Ok, so we signed up for virgin broadband/Tv & phone, Installation was booked for Jan' 29th. Text received confirming this, Wife takes time off work to stay in, no one turns up, NOT happy. After work on the saturday I spend over an hour trying to get through on the phone and waiting for 'live' chat. No response !
Cannot find anyway to make contact on website so now left with little option now but to cancel.
I was joining virgin for improved speed but if this is how bad customer service is before I have a contract how bad will it get ?
General advice on here is never cancel any existing BB contract until VM is installed and running to your satisfaction Having 2 running for a few weeks is a small price to pay for continuity.
Your contract and payments don't actually start until the day it is installed and activated - and thereafter you have 14 days "cooling off period" where you can just cancel it at no cost However that may be different if you have no existing BB supply. Look at OpenReach, Sky, BT options and see if any of those could be installed quickly as a fall back.
That said, are you trying the Pre-installation and delivery team - they may have more info?
