I feel obligated to advise potential customers about my disappointing experience with Virgin Media since locking into a 24-month contract at a rate of £42 per month. My intention is to highlight the reality of their service, which has been far from the high-speed, reliable internet I was led to expect. The service has been atrocious from the start, with frequent disruptions and sluggish speeds that undermine the very essence of what I've been paying for. As a customer, you'd anticipate a certain level of quality and support for £42 a month, but I have been met with the complete opposite. My experience with customer service has been incredibly disheartening: long wait times, unresponsive support, and a general feeling of being an afterthought rather than a valued customer. The situation further soured when I learned that having a technician come out to address the many issues would incur an additional £25 service fee. It's pretty outrageous that customers are not only expected to put up with subpar service but are also asked to pay more to have problems, not of their making, fixed. Moreover, Virgin Media seems to have constructed an escape-proof trap with their hefty £600 early termination fee. This fee hangs over your head like a dark cloud, deterring you from leaving the service regardless of how bad it gets. You're left with two undesirable choices: endure the dismal service or pay a significant sum to break free from the contract. I'm sharing my experience to warn others considering Virgin Media as their service provider. Do not be swayed by the glossy advertisements and the allure of fast internet speeds without first considering the possibility of being bound to a contract that neither provides the promised service nor values you as a customer. I urge anyone to carefully weigh their options before committing to Virgin Media. The monthly fee of £42, coupled with potential additional charges for service visits, is not justified by the level of service provided. My advice is to seek out alternatives where your business is appreciated, and your money is met with the high-quality service it should command. Avoid the trap I fell into; there are certainly better, more customer-centric providers out there.
