    @SkyUK I Be happy if the network was working ⚒ OK hope your today busy fixing up the Problem around Lymm today 😁 @SkyHelpTeam it was work OK yesterday the network

  • craigawilliams Craig Williams (@craigawilliams) reported from Sale, England

    @NuclearJelly @BeccaLock2 @virginmedia @SkyUK In the interest of balance. Been with them for about 15 years and never had an issue

  • Sy_Taylor Simon Taylor⚽ (@Sy_Taylor) reported from Hindley, England

    @SkyHelpTeam hi I got a text from sky saying my broadband was going live yesterday but it’s still not working.

  • phanleyphotos Paul Hanley Photos (@phanleyphotos) reported from Prescot, England

    Moved from @virginmedia to @SkyUK but phone number hasn’t moved. @virginmedia say it’s possible to still port it and the response from @SkyUK - we don’t know how to do that, hang up and try to speak to someone else after 3 hours on the phone 🤬🤬🤬

  • chriswires1985 Chris (@chriswires1985) reported from Risley, England

    Still waiting for a refund from @SkyUK not great customer service at all. How hard can it be to process a refund and issue a cheque. Think it’s time to take it to the ombudsman let them look how shabby sky customer service is

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    So @SkyUK finally just replied to me on Messenger. Then said that as I’ve been with them for over 10 days I’ll need an engineer. Except I only had the service installed on Friday, not 10 days ago. Such poor service. So @SkyUK cancelled and over to @VodafoneUK instead now.

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    1.5 hours since starting a chat with @SkyUK support via Facebook Messenger and I’m still being passed to agents. Nobody has spoken to me yet. Time to cancel the service, this is poor.

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    Interesting that @VodafoneUK say OpenReach confirms a higher minimum speed than @SkyUK are advising I will get as a minimum. On top of that, @VodafoneUK’s own guarantee is higher again too. Maybe I should’ve gone with @VodafoneUK instead. Might cancel @SkyUK not even a week in.

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    @SkyHelpTeam I’ve already tried calling, you have a message saying you’re very busy and that means sitting on a phone queue. Nobody actually seems to be available to help at all. Really disappointing from a company the size of @SkyUK that it’s so difficult to actually speak and get help.

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    Started a chat on Facebook Messenger with @SkyUK regarding my broadband issues at 9:04am. Since then I’ve been passed to 4 agents, none of which have actually spoken to me and have just passed me straight on to someone else. Supposedly it was a 20 min wait to speak to someone...

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    @SkyHelpTeam I’m on Facebook Messenger and three times I appear to have been passed around to another agent, three time’s being asked to provide my name and info. Then get told someone will be with me. This is really poor customer service. Come back @virginmedia, all is forgiven.

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    @SkyHelpTeam @SkyUK @Ofcom I only get told to speak to someone after 10 days has passed, which is starting to feel like a delaying tactic to be honest. I’ve tried calling and you’re very busy with calls, I haven’t got time to sit in a hold queue. My service isn’t even a week old, I should need to call.

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    Day 4 and still no change from @SkyUK broadband speed, and still not hitting the “guaranteed minimum speed”. 6 more days for them to fix it...

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    @SkyHelpTeam @SkyUK I’ve tried a PM, I’ve been told to wait 10 days. Given my speed hasn’t changed since the service was installed 3 days ago I don’t anticipate it changing over the next 7 days. You’re failing to meet the guaranteed minimum speed so let’s see if you can meet it in a week’s time.

  • RuthiePollock Ruth Alice Pollock (@RuthiePollock) reported from Manchester, England

    @SkyHelpTeam please advise what the issues are with Sky email and when you expect it to be operating

  • leythdave LeythDave (@leythdave) reported from Tyldesley, England

    @SkyHelpTeam Wifi is terrible in this house, contract is nearly up, I'm looking around...

  • bumpiegin Hayley Dulson-Hughes (@bumpiegin) reported from Salford, England

    @PriceyCamp @SkyHelpTeam Terrible. The woman I (finally) spoke to was lovely but sky are rubbish.

  • bumpiegin Hayley Dulson-Hughes (@bumpiegin) reported from Salford, England

    Hey @SkyHelpTeam I’ve not no internet and don’t fancy waiting in your 20 min telephone queue can you help on here. Tried resetting etc but no connection on any devise.

  • jimmy_norton1 Jimmy Norton (@jimmy_norton1) reported from Tyldesley, England

    @mgallagher90 @SkyCricket @SkySports different videos of it scattered all over the internet. never get bored of it

  • kris_samy Krishna Rajgopal (@kris_samy) reported from Sale, England

    Benjamin Epic Stokes. #epicstokesy Never watched anything like this. Who said test cricket is boring. Just Woov !! @englandcricket @ESPNcricinfo @espn @SkySports @BBCSportsy

  • DagsJT Darren Thomas (@DagsJT) reported from Warrington, England

    So that’s @virginmedia cancelled off and their poor effort at a service. I had more reliable service with dial-up! Now signed up with @SkyUK and hoping they can at least provide me internet that I can use for a day without it going off constantly.

  • wesleyworld3 Wesleyworld3 (@wesleyworld3) reported from Lymm, England

    @CardoScalaRider Still waiting & still not working the page still have same message there still fixing the line that come from you away not here in home night @SkyUK

  • alcolley8 Alan Colley (@alcolley8) reported from Boothstown, England

    @SkySports why has SSN become so obsessed with stats.....”Burnley have never won on a Monday night when playing against a team in white”....35 games since Everton beat a team on Wednesday night when it’s been raining”...Mike Wedderburn even looks embarrassed....

  • philroue10 Ya Ma's Athletic (@philroue10) reported from St Helens, England

    @SkyHelpTeam internet playing up again day 10. Many attempts to call through but after 30 mins of waiting i cant be bothered. Funny when i wanna add service its like fatest finger 1st. BB on and off like a light switch. Think time for a change. Done all the scipted test #boring

  • treeandcrown JP (@treeandcrown) reported from Wigan, England

    @ulstershaker @theawayfans @SkySports I agree, although charging £30 for a Tuesday night game that’s on the box doesn’t help either.

  • J_P_Green John Green (@J_P_Green) reported from Bolton, England

    @Baldeag23552875 @BoxingKingdom14 @SkySports Don’t get me wrong they risk their lives in the sport they love and they’re never going to be on £10 an hour but talking about millions and billions as a mindset is wrong and sets a terrible example

  • leythdave LeythDave (@leythdave) reported from Tyldesley, England

    @SkyHelpTeam I have a problem playing @YouTube through my Sky Q box. It freezes when the adverts start. Plus BB connection keeps lagging/buffering.

    Disappointed to hear that Tyler has toned down his "and it's live!!!!" #SuperSunday #SkySports #mnuche

  • wireknox Wireknox (@wireknox) reported from Warrington, England

    @lonnyypops @Saints1890 @SkySports @TheRFL Thats awful.

  • GreggMac11 G-Mac (@GreggMac11) reported from Warrington, England

    @SkyHelpTeam Can you please provide me with a number for the Sky Help text service as I simply don’t have the time for another 1.5 hour wait on the phone today. Thank you

  • NiciJune Nici Walsh (@NiciJune) reported from Salford, England

    @SkyHelpTeam hi - I’m having an issue with my sky Q box. I’ve sent a DM about it but could do with some advise. Thanks.

  • natashaturk natashaturk (@natashaturk) reported from Sale, England

    @redmanc76 @SkyUK @SkyHelpTeam Yeah I loath that shit! I need to get rid of it and find an alternative.

  • NCD0284 ⭐️⭐️Nicola⭐️⭐️ (@NCD0284) reported from Bolton, England

    Outstanding customer service from @SkyHelpTeam Report a GDPR breach to them by twitter because I can’t get through on the phone & their response is we can’t help with this, you’ll have to call. Great to know you take your legal obligations to protect customer data seriously!

  • foster_coralie Coralie Foster (@foster_coralie) reported from Bolton, England

    @SkyHelpTeam my 78 year old mum who is deaf & does everything by e-mail is part of this huge locked out of account issue. Can't use Sign in helper & Yahoo have said this is a big Sky issue - what can you do to sort asap. I can see on here is a big problem and phone no one hr wait

  • paultheblue2 Paul (@paultheblue2) reported from Manchester, England

    @SkySports moving the camera to opposite side of Kenilworth Road doesn’t disguise the fact it is one of the biggest shit holes I have been to.

  • eindhoven63 Peter Broadbent (@eindhoven63) reported from Manchester, England

    @SkyHelpTeam You misunderstand. I've done all that and have a ticket raised. But your first line support continually put me thru to the 'Sky Apps Team' where I wait in the queue but eventually get hung up on. I go round and round and get nowhere.

  • BenGShirley Ben Shirley (@BenGShirley) reported from Atherton, England

    @aberfoodblog @fLip_uk @ioauk @BBCCasualty @thepengineer @BBC @BBC6Music @BBCiPlayer @SkyUK @NetflixUK @SalfordAcoustic @S3ASpatialAudio Hence why the clean audio recommendations in ETSI and other broadcast standards were largely ineffective in solving the problem. Object based audio has advantages that research like this needs to explore if we are to gain any benefit. Also it really wasn't an expensive project!

  • basnettdavid1 ⚂ David ⚽️ Bazzy 🏉 Basnett 🐶 (@basnettdavid1) reported from Salford, England

    Tv 📺 Still No @SkyUK signal (0% its problem number 25) since Sunday night . Engineer coming out on Monday 5th August , YES a week with NO tv including @BristolCity v @LUFC #RAW #SDLive #theChase 👤 . Good job got 50ish unwatched DVDs . Glad going @RebellionFest 🎸 this weekend .

  • laurathompson81 Laura Pendlebury (@laurathompson81) reported from Bolton, England

    @SkyHelpTeam It’s taken 7 hours to download Cars 2 from our purchased archive. My little guy isn’t v happy. I’ve tried deleting things from our planner but doesn’t help it taking so long. We can only watch films with the play triangle on , so annoying when we pay so much. 😩

  • basnettdavid1 ⚂ David ⚽️ Bazzy 🏉 Basnett 🐶 (@basnettdavid1) reported from Salford, England

    Problems with Tv 📺 @SkyUK again , it's raining . Problems watching a broken up @ITVChase #theChase 👤 #Frustrated

  • eindhoven63 Peter Broadbent (@eindhoven63) reported from Manchester, England

    @SkyHelpTeam so you lock my account. I cant now use Sky Go. I can't login to my account. All because an email account I don't use has been hacked. And to unlock it I have to ring YOU and wait in a 45min queue. The first automated q asked is What's My Password!! NOT answering THAT

  • sheila_riley Sheila Riley (@sheila_riley) reported from Bury, England

    @AndyhHolt @TheJackDearden Jack, is there any way this can be flagged up to SkySports. Something needs to be done and very quickly and you may be the man to help Bury.

  • WaggonYork Waggon & Horses (@WaggonYork) reported

    @Only1Argyle @EFL £10 would get me a whole week of @SkySports but I keep wasting it to watch garbage on this shoddy @EFL streaming service. Poor camera work and muted commentary as it’s 30 seconds behind.

  • sootdog1lsf Daniel Sutton (@sootdog1lsf) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam How do! Some reason I don’t think my sky mini box is acting as a WiFi boost in my bedroom. One main reason I came back to you is for that. Help please. It’s in furtherest part of the house and running Q main box and two mini’s.

  • BryanAltimas Bryan Altimas (@BryanAltimas) reported

    @SkyHelpTeam your customer service is appalling. You expect me to wait 4 weeks for an engineer to fix a SkyQ box is exceedingly poor #CustomerExperience I will be closing my account of 16 years tomorrow
