Customer service - wait for 20 mins and they hang up!

I've been trying to call and chat online but no joy!!

I got through twice after a 20 or 25 min wait and on both occasions the rep hung up - not a great way to handle call volume and manage customers

The live chat is also down despite being constantly directed to use this service.

When you put though a price increase expect call volumes to rise!!!

Call back is required - I'm really annoyed - Virgin beckons!?!

Not really an answer. Call the overloaded line to wait 25 mins with a
message asking to use the chat service and get disconnected at the end.
