    @SkyUK Hi, We haven't had internet for nearly 3 days now. I run a business from home. I am paying a minimum of £85 a month and the service is absolutely terrible. It drops out for long periods every day. Can you tell me what is going on.

    I don't know why I keep paying for this Sky Q package. "To enjoy blah blah we must have an active internet connection. I'd like one too! It never gets resolved. Internet working. @SkyHelpTeam

    If your thinking of @VodafoneUK DON’T!! Most horrific broadband provider ever, and even worse customer service!! Despite 20+ attempts to resolved issue you want to charge early termination fee to join @skyuk despite your staff acknowledging it’s Vodafone to blame! 😡

    How the hell can it go from having a perfectly working network to not being able to see ANY WiFi networks at all. The NEXT time I scan it can magically see 8. Sure, all 8 failed. It's not your shit boxes, @SkyUK! #SkyQ

    Anthony Chambers (@AntneeC) reported

    I spent three hours dealing with @SkyUK over Facebook Messenger the other day trying to get my #SkyQ box to stop losing its WiFi connection. It still does it. After it loses it there's no visible WiFi networks. And they blame my network. Useless piece of shit

    @morven_wood @ScotlandSky @SkySports Aye, you’re completely right, they are both terrible. Provan doesn’t even try to hide his bias nowadays. The BBC boys probably do the best with Scotland games. Team cruised it tonight,pity Shinnie and GMS never got on.

    @SkyUK I have been trying to get my broadband issue sorted for nearly 3 weeks, I have called and used the text service to sort it. The service is truly dire. They start a conversation, then stop speaking to you, I have been waiting 1 1/2 hours for a response to my last question

    Anthony Cox (@AJC2424) reported

    @ReDevil_UTD @SkySports @btsport @BBCSport Unless it's Premiership or Championship, you won't see it on Sky (or any of their rival channels). International football is woeful to watch at the best of times so, I agree, having some lower league games broadcast wouldn't be such a bad idea.

    @SkyUK Thanks Sky. It’s nice to know that someone is listening & understands what service actually means. I would move to you in a heartbeat but sadly @virginmedia and @bt_uk have a monopoly on the estate & won’t give Sky access to actually give us the option of reliable internet 😩

    @SkyHelpTeam can you confirm if any issues with broadband in wallasey, wirral. Ch45 postcode. Broadband down again for a while now. This has happened a few times recently, we were affected by the fibre-optic line getting cut through recently. A swift response would be great
