    Since the time i was forcefully told to upgrade to fibire optics being loyal customer for last 10 years + I m having night mare i might have called the help desk i guess 10-20 times all the time it is standard type reboot your modem log on do these and do that. The issue of connection drop of never resolved all the time engineer comes either replace the router or tell me that there is card issue in the area it has been going for last 2 months with no end in sight. Also they give advt about Usain bolt etc they should focus of customer services not ripping off the money.

    Virgin are so terrible. so far we have been with them for about two months and have called to complain about the terrible service maybe 5/6 times but nothing has been done. If we are lucky we have a working Internet connection for a whole day but usually it drops out every few hours or runs at dial up speeds. I usually end up having to just use my mobile data which is way faster almost all of the time (not provided by virgin).

    Frustrated and angry that no one in virgin cares.they take your money after hard advertising, tie you into 18 month long contracts and dont deliver. Customer service is non existent because the poor lowly ipaid muppets on the end of the phoneline are not interested in what you have to say and the may never speak to you again. I have only been with virgin media since 6th september and to date have had no telephone service. Had tv and broadband working for a couple of weeks but tv kept buffering. Now have no services whatsoever from virgin. My package is big kahuna with movies sports and HD including phone. I have none of these services operational at this moment in time but still psying for them. virgin still want to take money from me. Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish. Dont even think about going near virgin because all these reviewsant be wrong. Im now waiting for an engineer to fix the problem but no assurances when. Its a joke but no one especially me finds it funny. If I went to the shop and bought something and it became faulty, I would take it back and get my money back. If you tell virgin you're cancelling direct debit, they say that they will come after you and ruin your credit rating. Isnt virgin wonderful?

    Absolutely fine until the day you encounter a problem or attempt to cancel due to their price increases mid contract. Call centre staff lie with the aim of eking out a little bit more cash from you before you leave. Once in the "system" nothing is reversible and any complaints can only be dealt with in writing within 28 days (contrary to what their own complaints policy states and presumably so people tire of the stress of the issue and give up the money virgin demand just to get away from such a shoddy company). No matter how pleasant staff seem on the phone always assume their seemingly casual questions have an agenda, take names and record dates because no matter how normal a call seems in my experience they will be attempting to take more money out of your pocket.

    Always cuts out, We never get 60 mbps unless we call up virgin and they literally boost it up to 60 which proves that they are controlling our dl speed and are making it poor on purpose! The download speed is normally 5 or 10!

    Very poor, been with them, since before they got their hands on the system. (Blueyonder/NTL etc).
    Price going up and up, service quality going down and down.
    Avoid, they try to con you into new contracts without clearly informing you.
    I suggest that you look elsewhere, their system is way over subscribed, and they are not interested in long standing customers, they are only interested in signing up new customers.
    I am supposed to be on 100mb, not even seen half of that in at least 6 months, and usually get less than a quarter of that, and sometimes only get around 2-5mb.
    Branson can swivel, and take his p1$$ poor internet/tv company with him.

    My bundle is 50mbs but what I get is 10/20mbs. So where that 50mbs???
    I lose connection to internet several times a week.
    Very, very Poor customer service. Practically non-existent.

    I with Virgin for nearly 4 years and I think now is good time to leave.

    I really fed up with all virgin media lies. Advertised 50mbs internet, but I get a not reliable 10/20mbs internet.

    I would advise anyone looking to go with virgin media for any service to not waste their money. They are money grabbing and horrendously unfair, leading people into contracts they are not fully aware of and taking more and more money they are not entitled to.

    I have been with virgin media for over 10 years now, in the space of them 10 years I have had to get a leats 15 new internet boxes, one of the boxes even blew up on it self. To starts of the internet speed is so crap how can use keep us on 20mg for over 10 years a long term customer. For new customers that join use they get better deals than me. I'm paying near 30 a month for the worst connection ever to even make it worst it nocks me offline every half hour and takes about 6 hours to work again? So that's how I feel about virgin media!
