Actually Viva was very good before but now a days, customer wont get teh respect from Viva Representative, if we ask any questions online only one answer they have visits the branch,when i say Morning i get reply after 10 mint my chat is not n Que,to clarify one question they take 45 mints and not proper answer,before to freeze the number Viva was charging 2 KD monthly, but now without information now they are charging 5 KD,really Viva is making too much money but without any support for customer,Kuwait Govt should give opportunity to other Telecommunication companies in Kuwait.Viva network is ok but customer support is really too bad.
