Resolving your Virgin Media complaints

Virgin Media will do their utmost to ensure that your complaint is resolved to your complete satisfaction. However, if you feel like this hasn’t been carried out by them, you can further escalate your issue to a manager who will look at your complaint further.

Independent Adjudication

If you and Virgin Media haven’t come to an agreed settlement within eight weeks of them receiving your complaint then you can then escalate your complaint to an outside body. This can also happen if Virgin Media write to you before the eight weeks are up and tell you that your complaint should be settled by independent adjudication.

In both of these instances, you have the right to refer your complaint independently through to CISAS (the Communications and Internet Services Adjudication Scheme) of which Virgin Media is a member. This service is free to use.

When this happens CISAS will ask both you and Virgin Media for evidence of the dispute, and they will then make an independent decision about the case.

Contact details for CISAS are as follows: CISAS, 70 Fleet Street, London EC4Y 1EU
