Can’t set up myVirgin Account

Our broadband has been hopeless since moving in. Really intermittent service & when I’ve tested using speed test apps - never even close to the M350 promised speeds. 

In order to solve this I want to use Virgin Media Connect. 

BUT I can’t set myself up with an account because my service area isn’t in the drop down list?

The email I received with account number & area code - had code 33. In the list it jumps from area 31 to 34.. 

As far as I can tell there is no way to speak to a human being at Virgin support numbers & the live chat Bots are useless unless you pick one of their drop down answers…

If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it. Otherwise I guess I’ll just book a technician - somehow I have managed to be sent a link to book that in. 

Thanks in advance

Re: Can’t set up myVirgin Account

Forget the connect App for the time being. Can yo post up more details of what the issues are that you are experiencing.

Firstly... are the issues only evident on wifi connections or do you see them at the same times on devices connected on ethernet cables? If you don't know, can you check to help diagnose whether it is just a wifi issue or it could be network connection related?

Are you having disconnections as well as speed issues.

What are the various Hub lights showing/doing when this happens?

Re: Can’t set up myVirgin Account

Hi Sofia,

Thank you for your reply. No I still can’t set up my account & that really is the first problem I would like to solve - so many of the self service suggestions first tell me to sign into my account.

The trouble is I can’t register as I must have been sent incorrect information in my very first email. The area code I have been given (33) isn’t available in the drop down when I go to set up the account. 

I have also tried using the online test service (which didn’t require me signing in & that did detect intermittent issues with the service). 

I have a technician booked but now my son has tested positive for covid so I need to reschedule & the only way to do that is via my account (that I can’t register) or to reply to the text saying it has been fixed (which is hasn’t).

The customer journey really doesn’t work well as soon as you have an issue along the way. It all appears on the surface very streamlined & organised but there has to be a way for people to reach a real person to explain an issue that doesn’t fit into the buckets offered by the technology robots. 

If you are able to PM me to help with the account situation I would really appreciate that. 

Thanks,

Jo
