I was thinking of upgrading my package but was put off by the one-off activation charge. Why are Virgin Media so greedy? I have been a loyal customer since the company was Diamond Cable and watched as prices have risen with very little improvement in their service. Probably time for a change to another provider methinks.
many companies have an activation charge. as i have said many times on here before 'companies are there to make money first then provide a service'.
being a 'loyal' customer is irrelevant. companies want to make as much money out of you as possible. customers will only stay if they get the cheapest deal as possible. i'm loyal to no one. i continue to look for the best deals regardless of how long i've been with someone.
I can understand a company charging an activation fee if somebody was coming to your house to make adjustments, but it seems unfair when it takes someone at Virgin Media a couple of minutes on a computer.
If I remember correctly, that is not what it says on the page. I was looking to upgrade my existing Tivo package and it clearly said there is a activation fee. If this is incorrect, the Virgin Media need to explain things better. As far as I know, I don't need any equipment changing.
