Why have I been charged for installation?

6230F143-3826-4124-A313-6EF46EAD7266.jpeg

I’m confused as to why I have been charged £30 for connection. 

I signed up and was not made aware of a fee, so far I haven’t had a very good experience having virgin Media installed. It was bad enough coming home to find the cable laying across my neighbours drive completely uncovered. 

The installer that set up the router reported it apparently, but due to a rightly angry neighbour I ended up spending half a day digging out and putting the cable under the ground. I’ve enclosed a snapshot of the deal I signed up to.

Re: Why have I been charged for installation?

Vm typically have 2 different fees. A setup fee and an installation fee. Sounds like you got one free and not the other. If its QuickStart then the installation fee is also free as you do it yourself.

thanks for the reply, it would’ve been nice to have been made aware of it before signing up.

Re: Why have I been charged for installation?

Check your contract, it should clearly state this, if it doesn't then you might have a reason to complain and have it removed from your bill, but that can't happen on the forums, you have to ring up.

The other fee is sometimes called "Manned installation fee" or something like that.

Seems to say clearly that there's a £35 installation fee payable, but the setup fee was free

Re: Why have I been charged for installation?

It says items marked * are included. I called up in the end and I’ve been charged £30 for activation the £35 was credited. I can’t be bothered to chase it any more, just disappointing that it could’ve been made clear. It’s apparently in the terms and conditions which I will be emailed by customer services in 24hrs. Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Re: Why have I been charged for installation?

Yes, it says the same on mine, but where it says "Other items and charges", it says on mine £0.00, so it seemed clear you were billed for it to me.
