Cancel Contract - failed install

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 ?

But even now I can't even get through to cancel 😫

Re: Cancel Contract

Which broadband package are you on?

And using an Ethernet wired connection, what speeds are you getting?

Re: Cancel Contract

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?

On.. 0800 052 1734

Call at 08.00 for the best chance of getting through quickly. There are many possibilities why this has happened so see what they say

Re: Cancel Contract

Hi thanks
I did try that number and I was left on hold.
Off to work shortly so I may give it a try at 8, as you say

Re: Cancel Contract

Well thanks all for your input, heard nothing at all from virgin, no replies or explanation so back with Talktalk.

Speeds are slower but customer service is much better.

Bye
