So we are paying for a super fast broadband speed £42 per month but not getting this. made Virgin going to refund? We have had slow internet since March this year and recently been told there is a problem -
You need to show that you are getting slow broadband.
How are you connecting your device, Wi-Fi or ethernet cable ?
Have you checked the 'Check Service Status' at the top of the page ?
If nothing is showing try phoning 0800 561 0061, this will tell you of more local issues that may be affecting the area. Be aware that it isn't a manned line.
Go round all the accessible co-ax connections and ensure that they are finger tight.
If everything above is OK we need do some more troubleshooting; to start with …
Can you set up a Broadband Quality Monitor (BQM) at thinkbroadband.com - this will give you an insight into what is happening with the signal at the other side of the Hub, it will take a few hours to get any kind of trend showing although you should post the link straight away.
Post a link to your BQM on here.

I have pictures stating limited access - good internet signal. Should be excellent. Instead of offering any help or calling me Virgin told me they would send an engineer but it would cost me £150!!! Are you kidding me -
I am really losing patience and am going to start seeking legal advice.
If a customer didn’t pay their bill on time Virgin would be on the line straight away or if I cancelled my direct debit, Virgin would be charging me left right and centre but as soon as Virgin breach their contract terms, we hear nothing! They just carry on taking the money and ignoring letters of complaints
