“Customer service”

Written on: 11/07/2017 by Joshn342 (1 review written)

Having had the same TiVo box for six years, never asked for upgrades or anything else that comes in the way of offers you'd think I would be classed as a valued customer, but my TiVo box has stopped working so contacted virgin who after some lengthy negotiations agreed to send another TiVo box but I would have to install it myself and phone virgin to have them turn it on, not only did the box not turn up on the said day (the following morning) nobody phoned to say it wouldn't be coming as the… Read Full Review

“You have not received the worst erver service ...We have!”

Written on: 11/07/2017 by 1983Shields (1 review written)

All of the previous reasons for poor reviews for Virgin apply but include harassment when no service provided at all in our case. Intended to move from BT for an apparent better deal via Virgin dated fixed for changeover reminder the day prior that the change is all arranged. On the day told Virgin could not provide service because of technical reasons! BT meanwhile cut off our Broadband lost for over a week trying to resolve! Attitude of Virgin simply deplorable still getting payment demand 5… Read Full Review

“Worst Customer Service EVER!”

Written on: 02/07/2017 by Kaim421 (1 review written)

We have been with Virgin Media for 1 year. For the money we paid the package was rubbish. The channels we received except 1 or 2 off them could all be accessed through My View. Internet slow. We have just rang to give notice to end our contact, 35 minutes later after a very stressful phone call it is now being cancelled. Very pushy sale staff who do not listen to their customers. Avoid Virgin at all cost!… Read Full Review

“The worst customer service ever - no respect for customers”

Written on: 29/06/2017 by Ccap82 (1 review written)

They are simply incredibly unprofessional. They are not rude, but don't take into account any critique or any complaint from customers -in fact, they don't have a way to complain anymore! But they charge you more and more, even on ongoing contracts -from £13 a month, I paid £31 - £39 for the past two months, and I am not always using my phone at all! They called me for an upgrade, I spent 1,5 hrs at the phone with someone to make him understand that I wanted my new phone delivered at my work… Read Full Review

“Beyond awful ”

Written on: 28/12/2016 by McFadden264 (1 review written)

On the 22nd December 2016, I started to experience strange occurrences with my home phone. I was getting calls in very quick succession with a very,very rapid ring tone and when I picked the phone up, there was not one on the other end. I telephoned Virgin media this same day and got through to an overseas call centre. The person that I spoke to on the 22 December 2016, was very unhelpful and firstly said there was no fault. I tried to explain that there was some sort of cabinet at the entrance… Read Full Review

You need to record each and every phone call to VM as they lie.

“Never again will I go with Virgin”

Written on: 23/03/2016 by ChelsieMc (1 review written)

We got with virgin in December with which we thought was a wicked package for two rooms, now since Decemeber we haven't had one correct bill come out we have called more than 5 times explaining we need the correct bill, they have cut us off three times and when we spoke to a manager she assured us this will be resolved and when the problem wasn't sorted we called back through to be told we are not telling the truth and that the call recording are only used for their use. The bills keep coming… Read Full Review

“Potential customers avoid horrid VirginMedia to avoid...”

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

On January 10th, 2016 (10/01/16 at 7:58 PM, ) I ordered Weekend Calls + VIVID 100 Fibre, which was upgraded by myself to Big Bang + VIVID 100 Fibre + Weekend Calls at a later stage. Installation date, when an engineer was supposed to come and install the service, was set by VirginMedia for 25 January 2016 between 1-6pm. I have provided your Wayleave Department with completed/signed Residential Wayleave Agreement from my landlord. I have also prepaid a year's saver line rental at… Read Full Review

“No Virgin Media customer service whatsoever!”

Written on: 04/01/2016 by RALFE (10 reviews written)

It's almost impossible to get to them once something goes wrong. 1. Had a problem with WiFi fading out and switching on/off randomly, so I eventually had to hard-wire my lap-top. 2. Recently been in a loop trying to access emails, with random access. 3. Now cannot access my account at all. It's constantly in a loop and ends up back at the Virgin home page. On the home page it gives a link to contact them via 'on-line chat'. No, their agents are always too busy and I 'should try again… Read Full Review

“Condescending Customer Services”

Written on: 21/10/2015 by Reaper4777 (3 reviews written)

I don't usually write reviews about companies but after 6 years or so with this lot since they took over NTL I am now fed-up of the ever condescending nature of their customer service people, my latest dis-pleasure was a girl from their stratford apon avon centre who obviously has no idea of customer relations, she does know however how to be rude, dis-courteous, condescending, arrogant and numerous other adjectives I could use to describe her. Her attitude stank and the tone she used to talk… Read Full Review

“Customer Service attrocious”

Written on: 10/09/2015 by chris135135 (1 review written)

I have now taken 2 days off work waiting for Virgin to install my service. The first time they turned up and realised someone else should have already been to do some outside work first. The second time they didn't turn up at all. Customer services say sorry but there is nothing they can do. Apparently as it was my choice to have Virgin, then it is down to me. How ridiculous. Stay away from Virgin… Read Full Review

Considering I have had 18 months of hell with Virgin Media and nobody listens and sticks to a script when you call, I thought I would compile my experiences in here so that hopefully more people can be aware of the dirty tactics used by this terrible company. 28.01.14 Mark Womersley- Virgin Media sales- Knocks at my door and convinces me that virgin are doing great offers, so I invite him in for a coffee and a chat, thinking we had saved money on sky my missus signs up to a 12 month multiroom… Read Full Review
