    Broadband contract rights? 16th Mar 17 at 6:21 PM
    Not totally the right section I assume but its hard to describe.

    Shortest version is, had it 2 years, got loyality discount Nov 2015 after contract changes, for next year they messed up billing so had to manually adjust bill each month so meant I had some months where I paid the full amount without discount, then another month where I paid next to nothing.

    Nov 2016 I managed to get through to executive complaints who credited 20 and I mentioned I was looking at new place to live and since my contract had ran out could I renegotiate when I moved and also get moving fee waived, was told this was possible and mention it to moving team when moving.

    Dec 2016 I had to move at short notice so QUERIED a house move, not authorised one, person said they were unsure if my new property had Virgin from pervious customer so would make checks and ring me back, the ring back never occured and about 10 days later services went off at old property.

    I query and was told that was because the following day a engineer was booked for new property, oh and by the way I was in a new 12 month contract and been charged a moving fee!

    I complained and got a response back of "well you asked to move house so the charge/new contract is valid"

    This is where it gets even more complicated due to the billing issues.

    They didn't take Decembers payment meaning I would owe 2 months on next bill except I also was due a 20 credit and as bill is 39 a month what was due should be 59, imagine my surprise that its 109 (20 for the moving fee) but even then it would be 89 so where did the extra 30 charge turn up from?

    I complain again (as well as complain start of Jan about the new contract) I don't hear back but pay 80 at the time and am told they will refund the 20.

    Febs and March seems correct bar the Jan bill being incorrect, it seems they charged me the FULL amount in Dec and didn't add loyalty credits then didn't credit for problems.
