    Highly unrecommended, I have been a long time customer and all I get is constant price increases. This company offers nothing for the existing customers apart from that. Will be leaving them when my contract expires later this year.

    NEVER GO NEAR THEM Still stealing from my family 3 1/2 months after cancelling. Who cares what speed it was? I got a cheaper faster deal and Virgin refuses to terminate my month to month arrangement. DISGUSTING THIEVES. See ‘RIP Off Britain’ before you make my mistake, thinking they wouldn’t spend millions advertising, if they were going to *** on customers. THEY DO.

    I live on Camberwell Grove, SE5 , in South East London. Service from Virgin has been on a downward trend over the past 12 months. Since 4th August 2023 broadband service has either down completely for periods of 48 hrs, or at best, intermittent over the day. Yesterday it went down for nearly four hours. Since I logged the first issue on 4/08, I have received multiple updates with the 'fix date' constantly pushed back. Originally this was to be fixed on 7th August, now the fix date is 11th SEPTEMBER. It is impossible to get through to someone to register a complaint. I was on the phone for nearly two hours today, and still no resolution. They ignore the emails, online chat bot requests and phone calls for assistance. Virgin Media offer TERRIBLE value for money. We have paid thousands of pounds in bills to them and get nothing in return. Very frustrating and infuriating service provider to deal with. I will be switching provider.

    Awful service.

    Been charged £58 for the last 6 months. I raised 3 months ago that I wanted to cancel and they cancelled it all for me, however I was shortly contacted by someone called Steve on - 07412 560 764 and he convinced me to stay with a package of £19 per month- needless to say, £58 has now come out of my account twice since this 'New deal' was put into place.

    I have called Steve multiple times and no answer. I have also requested DSAR as I will be taking this complaint to Ofcom/Ombudsman

    I recently had the unfortunate experience of moving my Virgin Media broadband service, and I must say it was nothing short of a nightmare. First and foremost, the lack of communication was astonishing. Charges were applied to my account without any prior notice or explanation. It felt like they were just reaching into my wallet without consent.

    Furthermore, the misinformation provided during the process was baffling. I was given incorrect information about the availability of services at my new address, leading to days of delay and confusion. It's frustrating to rely on a service provider that can't get such basic details right.

    To make matters worse, my complaint about these issues was mishandled from the start. It felt like they were more interested in deflecting blame than addressing my legitimate concerns. It's disappointing when a company prioritizes profit over customer satisfaction and fails to take responsibility for their mistakes.

    Overall, my experience with Virgin Media broadband during this move was nothing short of a customer service disaster. I expected better from a reputable provider, and this ordeal has left me seriously considering alternative options for my broadband needs.

    Never again 10 years with them try and cancel is a nightmare and they want to charge you for services you have never used. Customer service are money grabbing vermin. The worst providers for service and consistency of broadband. I can tell you when they drop the service almost to the minute

    We’re currently on round 2 of no broadband in a week, we had a couple of days with no internet last week and apparently this time Virgin are aiming to get it back on by 4pm Friday. I work from home, for myself, and can’t do my work without internet access. Virgin are constantly raising their prices for Broadband - which has been fast internet when it’s working - but with the huge amounts we have to pay every month, you’d expect them to keep it running. Two blackouts in a week seems a bit excessive!

    By far the worst customer experience offered by any company on this planet, you spend literally days worth of hours on the phone to them or trying to proceed past pointless bot messages. Its incredibly hard to cancel and typically involves 4-5 hours worth of calls to do so. AVOID

    This is review for the Technician who came out and fixed my broadband.
    Thankyou Colin56690
    He was friendly, knowledgeable, and went the extra mile at the end of a long shift to fix all the problems.
    Virgin Media should follow his example.
