    The broadband is great…when it’s working. Constantly drops out or will be connected with “no internet available”

    Without writing an assay, the company has adopted a system which gets their employees to do and say anything to get your business. I’ve been promised packages and performance which have not materialised. When you try to contact them, they promise to look into it and get back (never do) This company and its operation needs looking at by trading standards.

    Worst customer experience with a BB provider!!!
    The only reason I gave it a one star is due to the fact that -100 is not available!
    I ordered Virgin broadband on 20/04 with initial installation on 22/05 which I had to change to 20/06. Virgin did not instal the service on 20/06, instead rescheduled the instal to 01/07 and again failed to install the services on 01/07 without any communication or warning. I contacted Virgin numerous times asking for help as my Broadband contract expired on 30/06 and had no help offered so we purchased a dongle as we both work from home. I worked from friends' places and my wife worked off the dongle. I contacted them numerous times to speak to a senior manager and lodge a complaint with no success. As a consequence, I contacted EE on 04/07following my struggle of two months with Virgin and had every date met from kit delivery to BB installation. So in less then 12 days from the order I had a service provide which Virgin was uncapable of delivering in two months+. After the failed installation on 01/07. I contacted virgin numerous times and was given the 4th for cable instal with service activation to follow which was then pushed out to 08/07, then on the 8th, since nobody turned up I was given no further dates, just a plain statement that it will happen before 18/07 as the service will be activated on 18/07. Coincidentally a team turned up today to install the cable to the property, but I have today 14/07 cancelled the installation as I have lost confidence in their customer service, do not want to have the continued stress and uncertainty. This situation caused us a great amount of stress and financial loss. The worst experience I had with a service provider, and that says a lot as I used to deal with TalkTalk in 2009.

    I'm absolutely appalled with Virgin. We've been a long standing customer of over 20 years. They've made the odd mistake, which I'm happy to notch up as experience and move on as it's been resolved. However they've made a massive mistake on our new contract and we're paying £60 a month more for the same service, which wasn't what we discussed and supposedly they can't find the details of the conversation we had and said my wife was 'LYING' over the phone! How dare they! If it wasn't for the fact the contract is in my wifes name, I'd be severing immediately. Quite rightly my wife is trying to get the situation sorted, but one thing is for sure I would never recommend them ever again. Shockingly bad customer service and can wait to get rid of them.

    When we moved into our house, we were told virgin was preinstalled. Ordered super fast fibre. We moved in. The box was due to arrive the next day. Received confirmation it would. It didn't. They cancelled our account for no reason whatsoever. Set up a new one.

    Box arrived a week later. Wouldn't boot up. 1 week wait for an engineer. Engineer came, said there was a problem with the line. 2 week wait for another engineer. They arrived yesterday. Couldn't sort it. Now have to wait for another 2 weeks for another engineer.

    Throughout, we have raised complaints and been promised callbacks. We've received nothing.

    I paid all the bills on time. When I was trying to move the service from my old home to a new home I requested a technician but they didn't agree and they asked me to install it at the new address myself.
    Submitted a request on Saturday to disconnect the service on Monday (at the old address) and activate it at the new address. They were supposed to disconnect at 12 pm (my request was) but they disconnected at 12 am. Called them and they were very rude.

    Supposed to be back ON at the new address at 8 am but has not been activated till now. Called 6 times and went through many security questions but still not fixed yet. Very bad customer service and rude agents but they sent me an estimated bill for 71 GBP at the new address. They don't even know how to pull my account with my account number. Worst experience. Avoid this provider at all costs.

    Paying a good amount of money for internet but it doesn’t work. Slow, regularly down. Engineers are always working on it and it is never fixed. The worst internet service I have ever used. Appalling. I will never use them again.

    Been a loyal customer for almost 30 years, last few have kept getting large bills and having to fight to get them reduced. Went from £22 to £83. This year enough is enough so cancelled keep getting calls to say they can reduce it but want to reduce package which is basically one up from free view. The calls quote lots of facts and figures mostly difficult to understand asked them to put it in writing and they say they can’t put try to pressure me into signing a contract. Rubbish service, rubbish at returning calls would never use again. Avoid at all costs.

    Avoid this company like a plague. They lie to you to get you business and then ignore you when you find out the truth. These are con artist that are allowed to get away with it because they are a big company
