Hi guys, I got a delayed and delayed installation of broadband. Now I want to cancel the contract directly, will there still be the compensation? What action should I do to get the compensation? On the other hand, I got a useless Wifi-Dongle from virgin. How can I return it? Thank you.
Yes, the automatic compensation scheme rules do require VM to pay compensation for a delayed install, even if you cancel. Whilst it is supposed to be automatic, in your case you'll need to raise a complaint, and to do that in writing by post (you can't use phone or online options as they require an active account number). if the complaint isn't handled well, then you need to use Ombudsman Services to review the matter.
Also, read this.
I did not raise a complaint yet. Is it better to rasie a complaint by post after the cancel?
dont cancel - let it run and let the compensation mount up until they finally get you installed - once thats done test it if you want and cancel in the first 14 days at no cost then collect whatever is owed in compensation
you might have to use the arbitrator as VM have a record of not paying but you should get your fiver a day in the end
