Customer Number: xxxxxxx CRN: xxxxxxx
Hi ,
I contacted the helpdesk yesterday, because although the 1000 (Siro) service was installed in my home replacing Virgin 240,
with an ethernet connected Laptop the download speed is confirmed as only 98mbs!
The helpdesk had me reset the box, and after trying some things the speed was confirmed as no faster.
I was told to re-check the speed again today. I have done this and the speed is still only 98mbs download again after direct connection to the modem via cable.
Can you please look at getting this issue resolved please? I replaced 240 reliable broadband with vodafone siro 1000 because of the greater speed, I am not receiving the service I signed up for, in fact I am not getting one tenth of this service.
I am aware that I have a 14 day cooling off period and would expect that if this issue is not resolved the equipment is removed and my wall is repaired with the contract cancelled, is this a reasonable expectation?.
Thank you

I used the chat option and i was asked if i reset the modem, i responded that i talked with the helpdesk yesterday, this was done, as well other options the helpdesk operator said i should check 24 hours later, which i did and the download speed is still less than 100mbs.

The chat person then directed me to contact the helpdesk.

If i decide to exercise my option to avail of cancellation through the 14 day cooling off period, will the equipment be removed as well as the contract cancelled and my wall reverted to its previous state?

Can any of the Mods reply to my query on this please, as of today (im just home from work) its still the same.

Download speed connected via ethernet is 95mbs... obviously this is nowhere near what I should be getting.

Thank you
