7th June. Firstly enginners came around to install the cables and internet connection...the team wasn’t the right team, they werent trained to install fibre cable but somehow they did it.
They left after 3hrs, but no internet, tv and phone line. When questioned it, the enginners said the software was being installed and will take 1hr. 2hrs later still not working Wife rang back next day, was told virgin tech will come on the 9th June between 12-4pm. No enginner game, was told he did and checked our outside box... what a load of *beep*.
As I’m typing this message (9th June) my wife is on the phone again to virgin and now we being told they will come on the 11th June.
Poor customer service, they are lying and sending out engineers who can’t do the job.
So since 26 May (this was the original installation date) plus back to 7th June, we have no internet, no tv and phone line.
Let see if virgin reply to this message. If they do, please send me yr reply to my email address as I won’t be looking at this forum for a reply.
My advise to people reading this message, please please do not go with Virgin, we never had any problems with sky, only reason left sky was for a better deal. (Their call centre is in india (I think) they don’t care they are robots).
I’m advising my wife, let’s go back to sky. I don’t care we signed a contract, so far they haven’t kept their part of the deal.
I’m luckily enough my job involves meeting famous people around, wait till I see Richard Branson on the 19th June.
If anyone wants further information about poor service from virgin please mail me at email@example.com. There is more details to this story but I can’t be asked to waste my time writing this message on virgin forum.
The complaint team rang me on Sunday evening at 7pm (to solve few other problems) which was not the best time. Told them to call back on Monday evening on my wife phone, but they rang at 3pm instead on my phone. told him to call back at 5pm. Never did. These calls are from india call centre
Your customer service is very poor.
Still waiting for you guys to sort out compensation for calling u guys from our mobile phones when our home phone line wasn’t working. Also we used our phone data while the internet was down.
Our cable outside the house has yet to be re wired at it’s attached to the pipe rather against the wall.
Ive told my wife, if our problems not being solved. We will cancel our direct debit with you guys as you have not kept yr part of the deal. Only than you guys will fix our problems.
Hi it's very rare that anyone from virgin ever calls back, I'm afraid you where unwise not deal with the call at the time, I also know it's frustrating when problems occur cancelling a direct debit arrangement is very unwise as it will affect your credit rating, and cause you more problems than Virgin, phone early in the day and select thinking of leaving us route you will get through to a person in the UK, they know what they are taking about and hopefully be able to solve the issue.Regards Micky
Had broadband since Sept. Now told too many subscribers in the area so will have to wait for about 2 weeks for service to be restored. What a joke. Don't sign them up if your system can't cope. Now we all pay without a service. Looking to change back to sky - at least when there was the odd issue it only took a day or so!
