This is probably the worst company we've ever had. Fast fibre optic 200mbs speed? My arse. They will charge you extra on everythig and add extra bills for nothing. Did I mention you don't even get wifi? As I am writing this I am using 4G since virgin haven't sorted our wifi out for TWO MONTHS. You guys suck I wish I had gone with BT. Now I am stuck here with a massive bills and now wifi whatsoever.

Brighton Virgin Media  
Hello. This company is terrible if you can, avoid it at all cost. The network crashes are frequent and they will not give you a discount unless you go through a long reporting process.The customer support has no regard for the customer well being. There contract has loop hole's that are highly beneficial for them. You can not trust virgin media I was there customer for 6 years and I could not be more happy that I left. The only reason you would want to use there service is because of the Broadband speed but it's not worth it any more most of the other providers have caught up in that respect. I hope this will help you avoid this trap. Good day.

Peterborough Virgin Media  
I have signed up for 50mbps virgin fiber, thinking i was making an improvement over talktalk fiber. This was very much not the case, in fact i can hardly use the virgin system due to it dropping out and buffering everything. So today i decided to speak to one of dickys astronauts to get it sorted, but all i got was a impertinent "foreign person" that told me the weak signal could only be sorted by an apgrade.... virgin as a company is goin down the toilet! Never again.

Lanarkshire Virgin Media  
So I've been a member since before time began!! Basically since cable first laid their cables and were called telewest!!
Never asked for nothing in the she 25/30 years.
When I finally got my son to ask for a new V6 box which he had got 3 of for his house for nothing got told I would have to pay 100 pound.
When we finally got a half decent deal off them and told to ring retentions the offer was dropped and we asked to cancel....they duly obliged!!
Shocking customer service
Richard Branson more like Richard the terrible!!!!

Cambridgeshire Virgin Media  
awful install - came back and sorted out few weeks later

Receiving 50MB on their 50mb service...however whichever browser i use and coupled to hard wire ethernet - youtube struggles badly with............1080 x 60 !!!!!! - buffer symbol several time er min..

Spent £10 on the usual painful phone call - where they are only trained to talk you around in circles in barely understandable English from an Indian bedroom til you give up or shoot yourself

Pointed out they were offering 100MB for same amount and that I am a 2 week old dissatisfied customer...my problem apparently
Then the thing stops working - turns out that for some reason they ignore DD and send you an email bill?!! - for over £100

Next phone call, I simply cannot relate in civilised tones (another £10 on pay as you go) couldnt tell me why it was a hundred not £33 - told me to look on internet....I pointed out that could be tricky - he replied that if i refuse to tell him exact amount owing from email I would fail the 6th level of security checks

I pointed out that since my mobi no. checked out with their records and i confirmed postcode, name, address , when installed. type of contract,..zzzzzzzzzzzz and was trying to pay to re-establish connection............i am kinda highly unlikely to be some criminal mastermind....eventually he said, well how much do yu want to pay?...I picked a random fig, he processed it and back on line...none the wiser - still wont handle 1080p..........it is no better than my £19 talktalk, which incls phone...avoiding the 2 £10 phone charges in first week (£100 +£20) for 30 days of 720...dont get me started on the wi-fi!! - 10mb!!!!

Wish I never made the move to Virgin!

Currently paying for the VIP package with 350mbps speed.. so far the best I have achieved is 190mbps. I know to some that is fantastic speed but this will last 5 minutes max and then drop to 30 odd... I have spoken to the team at virgin who replied saying 350mbps is only achievable on wired connections and would depend on the house, I asked for them to lower my package as I don’t even get 150 as a constant but they have refused. I am now also struggling with my tv package. It freezes and struggled to load.

To give you an idea how bad things are, I am getting buffering on Netflix! Yet I pay £89 a month... awful service.

My complaint has been sent 6 days ago and I am still yet to hear from them.

I am hoping the 12 months go quick so I can go back to Sky with BY internet.

Please seriously consider options before jumping to virgin.

Nottingham Virgin Media  
Moved house so cancelled my contract, told I was due a £17 refund then got a bill for £52, phoned to enquire why and just got told that this was correct. Asked to speak to someone else as the guy I spoke to didn't want to listen, hung on for 15 mins waiting for some one, got fed up up waiting so hung up, ok I lose £52 but long term virgin will lose more as when we move into our new house I have a choice of by or virgin, guess where I will be spending my money?
