Just wanted to add a little balance to the debate over VF customer service. I recently downgraded my TV package to ditch Sky and upped the broadband to the unlimited 100/10 cable service as we use far more internet delivered stuff now using Unotelly.

Changes were made as expected but the line speed was stuck on 50/2 so I called today to follow up. Call answered in minutes and Kevin the CSR was awesome. Troubleshooting was done and all fixed, even called me back to make sure I was happy. Brilliant stuff and worth a mention because it was SO good.

IHUG days we generally did....  unless it was a customer we didnt like ;)

I still have an ex-IHUG customer that stalks me even though I left there in 2001/2002. (Waves to KJ ;) )

You sir, found a unicorn.
If you find one again, please capture it - we want to study it.

Edit: it is always good to hear the positive things from a company.

I did the same, downgraded to remove Sky Basic HD for my plan. It too was quite painless... That was until I got my next bill and they still charged me for a month of use after cancelling, couldn't get through on the phone, sent an email got a call back about 3 days later, very apologetic and promised a refund.

Next bill I got charged again, although to be fair, it did include the refund for February. After another 45 minutes on the phone I gave up and replied to the email they sent to confirm the first matter is being looked in to. Again call back in 3 days. They've promised again that it has been removed and another refund applied to my account, which should be in time for when the take the money out on the 19th. I'll let you know...

Moral or the story, don't count your dollars until you get a bill.

UFB being laid at the moment, in a months time I will have an alternative to cable and will probably jump ship.




Procrastination eventually pays off.
