    Worst providers ever. Waste of time and very cluless. I have been getting charged a very high amount for my broadband than what i originally agreed for over the phone. When you get to customer services it takes more than 40min for them to answer and when they do they are not able to help or understand the customers problem. They place you on hold for more than 25min to end up with no answer or them hanging the phone up. Very rude and i definitely would not recommend them to anyone. They are expensive and their broadband speed is awful for the amount that am paying. On top of this they end up saying the reasons your media contract has gone up is because of the inflation prices even though i confirmed i have not received no letter nor an email about this because if i new i will be getting charged that ridiculous amount i would have cancelled it there and than. Their communications are awful and do not listen or just keep you waiting on hold for a very long time.

    Useless customer service
    670863302
    Virgin were going to install on the 13th fiber and phone line , engineer came and said unable to do as pre installation has not been done . Phoned up virgin they said manager will call you on 24 hours . I said highly unlikely well 24 hours passed no call spent 3 hours chasing up . My lines are due to move from bt to virgin on the 16th . Virgin said they can do nothing until the the 24th I feel I have been messed about with Manager who dose not call . What can I do, manager is missing in action and fiber virgin unable to make and keep appointments water a lot of customers time . They sent Richard Brandon’s into orbit but they can’t install my fibre and arrange for a call back from a manager very poor service , I’m not even I customer yet and the treatment has been the terrible been with bt for 30 years and no issues whatsoever.
    Going to cancel stick with bt , I think virgin will bring down the reputation of o2 . I’m a o2 customer might leave them as they are connected with virgin . I suggest think twice before joining virgin .
    All they had to do was call me and not make me waste time chasing .

    Update I have now cancelled and will stay with bt virgin is a joke . Customer service is appalling wait for hours and hours .

    Deal anytime virgin broad 300 Al in £26.

    They keep putting the phone down On purpose Philippine call centre good for one word sorry . That’s why virgin took there centers there as they are the best at saying sorry sir every 1 second, lovely people but ain’t got a clue . Frustrating.
    Hot weather in car making calls for nearly 4 hours for them to keep putting the phone down so happy I cancelled.

    Cuts out 15-20 times a day. Not great when you need a consistent, uninterrupted wireless connection. Would never recommend. Using hotspot on my phone data is more reliable than this pile of utter ****

    Really poor customer service. Make it extremely hard to cancel.

    Fast speeds but not worth the hassle.

    It never works. Always just crashes. When it does work (which is extremely rarely) the speed is decent but that’s all that they have going for them. I recommend going for a different provider with slower speed and that is CHEAPER as virgin is extremely unreliable and really annoying.

    I using the 500mb/s plan. Last Monday (30/05/2022) my router break down then I use the apps booked the appointment at Saturday (04/06/2022). I was waiting hold day Saturday but no show. When I check the appointment by the apps. My appointment is cancelled! I call to the customer service try to know what happen is it. They tell me they don't know! So they let me to book an appointment one more time in Thursday(09/06/2022).
    When I check the appointment by the apps and website at Monday! They cancel my appointment again! I call to customer service I only have the same answer from them! Ok~ I book one more time in Friday (10/06/2022)! Then fxxking funny is when I check in the Tuesday morning, that appointment is cancelled again! What is the **** service they have? I call to them again, this time they give me an answer is, the engineer will send a SMS to me to confirm the appointment but they used the wrong mobile number to send so at the end they cancel it. But when I question to them why they using a wrong contact number in my account? I'm keep using my number over 10years haven't change and I check my Virgin account in the same time. I find the contact number in my account nothing wrong. At the end that customer service (Jausar) haven't give me any satisfactory answer and the sound like so fxxking funny to ask me did I still want to book the appointment to fix my router in Saturday(11/06/2022) or not!
    Ok~ I lost coz I need the broadband back! But I'm very angry with thier service! I 100% is going to other broadband company like BT! Then I'll never go back to use this company any service!


    500mbs plan but download speed less then 100mbs! Upload only 30-45mbs! This is the speed!

    If you need to call to their customer service you must turn on the record by your phone to record all what they promise or anything. If you have anything problems like me. This can proof what you got from their services.

    Wifi frequently cuts out. Virgin will charge £40 if no fault found, but as its intermittent, that relies on the technician working out the issue whilst they visit. Customer support slow to respond
