Hi - I recently started service with the Bigger bundle, but about 3 weeks ago decided to upgrade it to Bigger Oomph which should provide M200. Virgin Mobile have sent me out the SIM and that's active, but it appears M200 hasn't been applied to my broadband service as I'm still getting the M100 speeds of my initial contract.
Last week I asked SMS chat about this and they directed me to call in, implying an order had not been actioned but they were unable to make the change themselves - upon calling in, on Saturday the 3rd of August, I was told that the change would apply within 24 hours. This doesn't appear to have happened, and my suspicion is that the relevant configuration change hasn't actually been applied to make it happen.
'My Package' in My Virgin Media claims that I have M200 - but 'view contract' under billing still claims I have M100. I've rebooted it, but I believe the Hub 3 is still indicating a configuration for M100:
Primary Downstream Service Flow SFID 10423 Max Traffic Rate 117000047 Max Traffic Burst 42600 Min Traffic Rate 0
Primary Upstream Service Flow SFID 14986 Max Traffic Rate 630047 [Currently showing 6300047] Is there a bug in the reporting? Max Traffic Burst 16320 Min Traffic Rate 0 Max Concatenated Burst 16320 Yes you are like me 100Mb service.
Today I've received a contract change email which seems to imply that I'm somehow now being charged for both M100 and M200? The monthly service charge is listed at £80.75 for the 12-month introductory period, whereas I agreed to a new monthly service charge of £70/month for the upgrade, as was the bundle price of Bigger Oomph + Movies at the time.
Thank you for reaching out to us in our community, I am sorry to hear there is some confusion around your service charges and package.
When you upgrade it is usually done on a 30 day notice, the services change after this period, the billing side usually shows both as one is charged on a pro rate basis and the other is credited back for the period you haven't used.
Have you spoken to the team to get an understanding of this?
I have since received a bill which is for the pre-upgrade price of my package, so am satisfied at this stage that I'm not being overcharged, at least. Indeed, as I actually have and am actively using the Oomph SIM, it would appear I am now being undercharged?
32 days have now passed since I initially requested the upgrade (I was not informed of a notice period during the live chat in which I upgraded), but it appears I continue to have M100 - indeed, My Virgin Media is now actually indicating M100 as my current broadband speed again.
I'm currently paying £62/month, which was the 12-month introductory price of Bigger + Movies at the time I initially signed up. I was quoted and accepted an introductory price of £70/month over live chat to change this to Bigger Oomph + Movies.
My latest bill from Media claims to be billing me for 'Bigger bundle + Movies' and as such makes no reference to the SIM - whereas my latest bill from Mobile is for £0 and refers me to my Media bill.
