I've had no internet for almost 2 weeks. I've called up customers services and each time I've been told it'll be fixed 'by noon the next day'. It seems like its something they just say with no action unfortunately and its getting frustrating that I now know what they're going to say and know its just an empty phrase. They haven't even mentioned sending out an engineer to have a look at the connections at my address. I feel like I'm stuck and Virgin are not doing anything about it.
Thanks - As an update I gave them another call. I was told they were going to arrange a call back so I could speak to a senior engineer within 30 minutes to sort the problem. I didn't hear back 4 Hours later and so I gave them another call which they then told me they decided to cancel this call without telling me. I asked to speak to a manager which they said they would call me back on the same day. No surprise that didn't happen either.
I guess I'll try again another time. If anyone is reading this - I wouldn't advise joining Virgin. I've never had such bad service like this before.
Sorry for the problems you've had with the service for so long, I can certainly understand your frustration with this situation so would like to help get things sorted.
I've been able to locate your account & can confirm there is currently an issue in the area that we currently estimate will be resolved by 02/05/19. If you continue to experience problems with the service beyond that point please don't hesitate to let us know so we can investigate further, apologies for any inconvenience caused by this in the meantime.
I'm grateful for the update. Could I check - my internet went down on the 16/4/19 and I think I enrolled on the automatic compensation scheme online for complete internet loss on either the 17th or 18th April. Would you be able to double check this on your records and confirm that I will be compensated by this scheme until the date it is fixed?
Just as an update. I had lodged a complaint in the end - which the complaints team never actually got back to me (they send a message saying they would contact me within 2 days and never happened). I did speak to a helpful person on the phone who did organise an engineer who came round and fixed my problem with the wiring external to the house.
After registering for the automatic compensation scheme which the internet was fixed on day 19 of total loss of internet loss - it was not applied automatically to the bill. I called up and they advised they would do a manual adjustment of £13. I advised its meant to be £8 per day as per their protocol and they advised there were not sure why it was not applied - even the chap I spoke to said he said it should have been applied. I asked to speak to a manager and they fobbed me off saying they would just say the same. They then put me through to the faults team which they then advised they could not help me and said they could not transfer me back to discuss with the person I spoke to before.
I was wondering if the virgin media team on this board could advise any further as I am getting no where with the automatic compensation scheme.
Thanks for your reply - unfortunately I don't have a complaint reference number. When I lodged the initial complaint for not having internet for the 2-3 weeks they never got back to me (aside from sending a text saying they would call though there was no reference number and they never called in the end). Since then I have raised another complaint on 20/5/19 since I had not heard back from the first one though the second one is in regard to getting no where the compensation scheme despite contacting the team on phone. They have also not got back to me on this either.
Can you look into this any other way without the reference number/look into my account? Any help is appreciated.
