Hello - this happened to me also. Not one mention of this hidden fee. I was very reluctant to take the additional services but the lady on the phone assured me for ONLY a small monthly increase I would get tv for 18 months. I asked and asked about any other costs. A categorical none. Then bang 20 pound activation fee.
On calling tonight the not so helpful support said it was a mandatory fee. And I said I get that but when I ask is there any more costs that I should be aware of and the virgin representative says no. Then that is simply not acceptable. I don’t think I can recall the last time such a stunt had been applied that has then not been back tracked.
After 10 plus years I can not wait to leave. Plus I am also getting 400kbps download speeds in the evening. Boom brilliant upgrade team Virgin.
Yes I've just got my first bill after installation 12th December and a frustrating few days waiting for an upgrade, I was shocked to see the amount of it (forgetting the rep had said it would be a double bill) and when checking it saw the £20 fee which wasn't mentioned when I signed up. I paid an up front fee of £25 to begin with too!
Who reads the small print? It should be mandatory that customers or potential customers are informed of this before they sign up.
