I live in a house share where an account was setup over 4 years ago by an ex-tenant that I have never met. Since one person (who I assumed had this changed when the old tenant originally left) had also left the house recently, I took over the responsibility to manage the internet. Naively, I asked for the account name and contact details to be updated. When I called to ask this, the lady on the phone just said 'okay I've switched off your internet - this should take effect within 48 hours' and then transferred me to sales. I was shocked that she didn't no listen or give the slightest bit of care to our situation. Bernadette from Sales set me up with a new contract, installation due for 5 days ahead, but she understood my issue. She checked with managers and actually called back (unlike other Customer Service reps) to say she had confirmation that she could get the old broadband switched on ASAP and there would in fact be one day where we are without internet. This would be fine, if it happened. 5 of us have had to undergo severe disciplinary procedures or have lost jobs because of the lies and incompetence of this company. I've called every day to get this rectified and it's now 3 days since we've had no internet and the customer service reps have been even more patronising and useless than ever. I've managed (after 2 hours on the phone, during a time that I need to be active at my employed place of work) Justin (employee no. C7799579) has ensured me that he's raising this with the 'Removers Team'. This sounds great and only happened after me having to push back on the normal procedure that he suggested of him sending a letter to the department with a response in 24 hours. After writing that last sentence it seems that the typical Virgin Media Customer Service practice of putting me in the general queue to pass me onto someone else (with absolutely no information passed i'm a brand new caller). A new guy has answered and pretended he can't do what every other representative has done to me this morning and put me on hold whilst the manager gets back to me. I am back to square one and nobody in this organisation can help me. This is absolutely unacceptable and not what we are paying for. (I have now been moved to the automated voice options)
