Wrong Cable received in Quickstart box

I have been sent the wrong cable in my quickstart box on Saturday. I called in the evening after work and they said theybwould order me a new cable. On the Sunday I was told my Internet was activated so charges would begin even though I could not use it yet. On the Monday (today) I called and asked about the cable as I had not been sent an email confirming the delivery, I was told on Saturday it would arrive by Tuesday at the latest. I have been told today that the cable wasn't even order so they will order one today, and it will take 3-4 days to arrive. So I am having to go nearly a week without Internet that I will still be charged for. Awful service.

Re: Wrong Cable received in Quickstart box

It might be best to post a photo or 2 of what cables you already have and what cables you have been sent. There might be a easier solution.

Re: Wrong Cable received in Quickstart box

To clarify I was sent a hub 3 power cable with the hub 4 router. I am waiting to be sent a hub 4 power cable.

Re: Wrong Cable received in Quickstart box

Thanks for your post Ashdibden, and a very warm welcome to our Community Forums

 

We're terribly sorry to hear of the error when delivering the services to you.

 

Do please advise us when the cable has arrived and the services are active and we will seek to deduct the days you've not had the services from the pricing of the pending bill on the account

 

Kindest regards,

 

David_Bn

Re: Wrong Cable received in Quickstart box

I have now my first bill and it has not been reduced even though I had to wait a week after I got the router to actually be able to use it. So not only did I have to pay extra to get more data thanks to Virgin Media messing up, I also now have to pay for Internet I could not use for a week. On top of that the claimed 512mb is so far off what it actually is, I'm averaging under 100mb per second. 

Truly terrible quality of both the interner service and customer service. I had been told I would have my first bill reduced due to being sent the wrong power cable, yet it turns out that was a lie.

Hi AshDibden, 

 

I am sorry to hear of your experience. 

 

I would be happy to take a closer look in to this for you but I will need to clarify some details first. 

 

I am going to pop you over a private message now and we can go from there.

Speak soon,
