“I'm a 72 yr old pensioner and I lasted less than 48 hrs”

Written on: 18/02/2017 by Aniyahz206 (1 review written)

My daughter suggested that I sign up to VM as I was using another less known company who had been providing broadband speeds of 1.4MB and still wanting me to pay. I read the reviews on this review site and another review site but was hoping that VM would be different. Unfortunately, they proved to be awful. I signed up for broadband and the landline. Before the installation date, they arrived at my property and laid bright yellow concertina cabling across my front garden. My daughter phoned… Read Full Review

“Warning - Keep away from them!!”

Written on: 12/01/2017 by CJ-London (1 review written)

Having received junk mail for years encouraging me to sign up for Virgin high speed broadband, I finally decided to give it a go. I was informed that it is available for my address and a date was set for the technician to install it. I cancelled my Sky broadband. Virgin encouraged me to create a virgin media account and install "F-secure" on all my devices before installation date, which I did. The day before installation a virgin employee (who spoke very poor English) called me and told me… Read Full Review

“Total rip off”

Written on: 01/01/2017 by Zairek1982 (1 review written)

Made a phone call abroad was charged £1.05 for the privilege, a 40 mins call cost me £46.80. I knew it would be expensive just not that expensive. So you get all these discounts when you join then you get hit by exorbitant call charges it works out the same as paying full price. The on demand doesn't work half the time. What a total rip off… Read Full Review

“complete rubbish”

Written on: 24/12/2016 by Elaine2016 (1 review written)

If your thinking about joining virgin media, DONT! I should have gone with SKY or used now tv because this virgin box has NOTHING IN THE VASIC package that you can get on a normal TV! Your just paying for the previkage of pausing live TV!!!! EVERYTHING else is added on top! Even old movies that you've seen loads of times you have to pay for! The box is slow on catch up TV. The broadband is intermittent. Fibre optic? More like fibre rubbish! Then they send you bills adding in items… Read Full Review

“Setting New Standards - Low”

Written on: 04/10/2016 by JeremyFinnegan159 (1 review written)

Getting the business line installed in our office was one of the most painful customer experiences I've ever had to go through. Virgin engineers turned up on 3 separate occasions to install the line, with all 3 teams deciding to call their visit a site survey so that they would not actually have to do the installation. This ignores the fact a site survey had already been done. The poor subcontracted installation team are targeted and so a job that is likely to take longer than "average" is… Read Full Review

“Disappointing TV Content, WiFI Signal and TV User...”

Written on: 27/06/2016 by IzabellaNeville189 (1 review written)

I was seduced by the Virgin Media Big Bundle adverts. Now I have too wait another 12 months before I can get rid of a very inferior service. Everything from TV user interface to Broadband Wifi signal, to TV content, to speed of operation is of poor quality. The fact that its 230 channels is irrelevant if they are mostly unwatchable. Thank goodness for SkY Sports, BT Sports and the BBC; other wise we would never switch the TV on for the remainder of the contract. Wifi doesn't reach all the rooms… Read Full Review

“not up to the job”

Written on: 30/04/2016

been with them for nearly 7 years. there are issues with broadband on average every 3 months. last october off 2 days due to technical probs. in dec off 3 days not forgetting last june off 4 days. Credited with days of lost service on a pro rata basis of the monthly bill ie a couple of quid. They try then to add a package or upgrade at a discount to pacify you. they only keep a record of your conversations with them for six months so if you need a full report over and above that for litigation… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 26/02/2016 by StuartPaterson (1 review written)

I have been with Virgin media for three months and had nothing but issue. My phone has been blocked three times in one month despite me calling in every time to remove the block. I get told it is for my own protecting because my phone bills are high. Three times I have confirmed that the usage is verified and I can pay the bills and have been doing so yet they still bar it? Despite me not being able to use my phone I am informed that I have to pay £250 to get out of my contract? The service… Read Full Review

“Shocking customer service”

Written on: 24/02/2016

If a "no star" rating was available I would have selected it. Had to call 3 times to even register an interest in getting Virgin Media service as the first 2 new business contacts didn't bother to sign me up/call me back. Finally dealt with someone who went through all the necessary registration and confirmed the services were available in my area. The date for installation was agreed as today and so I booked the day off work and arranged childcare/school run help etc. Have also cancelled… Read Full Review

“constant head ache”

Written on: 11/02/2016 by Hurley1946 (1 review written)

Avoid at all costs. Unreasonable when dealing with complaint regarding being sold wrong package, even when providing own proof due to conveniently not having any details. Very unhelpful with a unprofessional attitude by the complaints management to weasel there way out of a situation. Stupid attitude from a diabolical company… Read Full Review

“non working mobile”

Written on: 27/01/2016 by Cassidy314 (1 review written)

Had mobile and tablet package just before Christmas. Mobile has not worked properly and has been returned twice. It was returned with letter stating the problem has been dealt with and phone fully tested. Yet again the phone is not working. Phoned and was passed from department to department. No one actually listens to what you are saying and you find yourself constantly repeating yourself. Thinking of leaving virgin if problem is not resolved. This will include television, broadband… Read Full Review

“ABSOLUTE RUBBISH AVOID”

Written on: 10/12/2015

Absolute rubbish. Poor products, unreliable, terrible customer service, promise the earth and deliver nothing but very quick to take my money. Switched to virgin from BT for broadband and telephone and from sky for tv in September. Up to now never had a consistant service. TV down for 5 days, broadband no connection for 2 weeks, telephone out of order for 9 days all on seperate occasions. Promised £100 voucher never received. Cost was free for 3 months half price for 9 months and then full… Read Full Review

“SUPER FAST...ISH BROADBAND”

Written on: 28/11/2015 by ekLoomis1964 (1 review written)

Have just left Virgin media after 14 years having swapped and changed my services over the years. Firstly can I say the customer service in my experience has been fab. If I ever had an issue it was sorted asap! and when EVER i was tempted to leave they gave me great discounts. For example there standard 50mb broadband only price is £28.50 and I was getting it for £17 not bad considering I didnt have to pay line rental. I have had the tv as well in the past and its ok..not as good as… Read Full Review

“Will NOT STOP sending advertising to my address, every...”

Written on: 16/11/2015 by sajldkfhjhfsdds (1 review written)

This is the worst company I've ever NOT had dealings with! (I've had to deal with them for a few friends who are with them and they were pretty bad then). In the last 6 months I've contacted them on no less than FOUR separate occasions, only to be told every time that my address has been removed from their mailing list. They lied. Every time. I am still receiving bulky advertising letters and booklets on an almost weekly basis. TO VIRGIN MEDIA - You are the most appallingly disrespectful… Read Full Review

“Total rubbish, never known a company as bad.”

Written on: 14/09/2015 by Diverlone (1 review written)

I wanted to change my Virgin broadband service to a new house. Agreed a date of the switch off on the 8th of July and switch on the next day the 9th. Had a day off work, waited all day, but no call and no one turned up. Called Virgin, waited 35 mins to be answered, to be told it couldn't be fitted as it needed Constuction to do some work. This has been going on untill today, with many phone calls lots of lies to say it is happening, then it's not, being told to call back if I here nothing from… Read Full Review

“Very poor, rubbish Tivo”

Written on: 07/09/2015 by Julianne189 (1 review written)

Tivo is slow, youtube doesn't work, ondemand takes forever and crashes. NOW DOLBY DIGITAL HAS BEEN REMOVED. Watching tv is like watching youtube videos 10 years ago and the talking isn't at the same time as the faces moving. You can't do most of the things Tivo does in America. Customer services are a joke… Read Full Review

“Don't change to virgin”

Written on: 16/08/2015 by Lucky1919 (1 review written)

We changed from Sky in June and wished we hadn't. We were promised a like for like package and have had had problems ever since. We were misled and the customer service has been appalling with rude and overbearing telephone advisors. The only positive aspect has been the excellent service from the visiting engineers trying to sort out the many problems we have encountered( 3 different ones). They are desperately striving to maintain their company's credibility. If you are thinking of… Read Full Review
