    @Jenko90_ @virginmedia Apparently people around the country are experiencing dropouts or minimal service.

    I have never ever had such poor communication with a company trying to rectify THIER mistake @virginmedia . Transferred to 4 people during the hr waiting to speak to someone to find out no one ‘understood’ what the problem was. Shocking

    @EmmaLouRoscoe @virginmedia Pay for a connection with an SLA (hint: you'll be paying a **** ton more to look at your unimportant cat pictures) and then you can worry about compensation.

    @virginmedia @DestinyTheGame gave Virgin Media and Virgin Mobile notice that I am quoting today best thing that I've done in a long time cause it has no idea about how to treat loyal customers except hike their bills up.

    @RosaIera @virginmedia Working for me (though has been down twice in last few months). Last few outages seemed to be related to a DDoS I believe

  • ManAviation1107
    Adam Nadeem (@ManAviation1107) reported

    @RosaIera @virginmedia I never mentioned compensation, as you put in your public tweet, I am just saying that it isn’t acceptable, this isn’t the first time the WiFi has died, it’s getting ridiculous!

  • RosaIera
    𝒋. ♡ (@RosaIera) reported

    @ManAviation1107 @virginmedia All the affected customers from multiple service providers can only wait for an update. Slating Virgin would only make sense if it was a Virgin customer issue and not a country issue.

  • TsentoTV
    🧘🏻‍♂️Tim🏹 (@TsentoTV) reported

    @RosaIera @virginmedia It’s been like this for months it’s not just tonight, we had a hedge removed out front and the landscaping company dug up the wire by accident. Virgin refuse to replace it or even help us fix the problem.

  • RosaIera
    𝒋. ♡ (@RosaIera) reported

    @TsentoTV @virginmedia If you check downdetector bt, Sky, Virgin, and pretty much all ISP are affected. The issue is above Virgin they can only wait like all other ISP for updates on a fix.

  • RosaIera
    𝒋. ♡ (@RosaIera) reported

    @EmmaLouRoscoe @virginmedia All ISP’s are affected if you check down detector at the moment so the issue isn’t just with Virgin. If the issue is out of their hands they cannot be in control of it and therefore not liable to compensate.

    @KyleLeese17 @virginmedia I had the exact same problem. Was 1-1 I passed back to my gk sped up just for me to know I past it into the post and luckily went out for a corner ffs 😭

    @virginmedia my wi-fi has been playing up for the last 4/5 days,comes on goes off again REPEAT! checked ghe service status and keeps saying we apologise for inconvenience as some services are not available!i txt my phone number for updates and yet to receive a txt!!!

  • RosaIera
    𝒋. ♡ (@RosaIera) reported

    @ManAviation1107 @virginmedia If you check downdetector you’ll also see almost every other ISP is affected so it’s not Virgin specific but a much bigger issue.

  • RosaIera
    𝒋. ♡ (@RosaIera) reported

    Apparently @virginmedia is down for most of the UK tonight and there are still people taking it extremely personally that they deserve the Earth in compensation. 😂🙄

  • ManAviation1107
    Adam Nadeem (@ManAviation1107) reported

    Definitely would NOT recommend @virginmedia broadband! Spend more time offline than I do online! And no support given! Complete waste of money, look elsewhere for reliable broadband! My whole house is currently connected to my phone’s personal hotspot! This is unacceptable!

    @RiotMapleNectar @KateyAnthony Fix the connection between virgin media and your servers, even though it’s virgin media’s fault, you could atleast get in contact with them, the input lag has been bad for the past two years it’s unplayable

    @GodlessSmeghead One tip is to physically connect your PC to the router. Also, I have never had this trouble with Virgin Media.

    @ryhopewood Sorry to hear this is happening on iPlayer on Virgin Media. If it's still an issue, try rebooting the box, and also check for firmware/system updates. If it keeps happening, please get back to us. It may also be worth speaking to Virgin Support as they should be able to help.

  • Nwidobie

    @virginmedia just wondering if you’ll be reimbursing all of your customers for all of these outages. We’re essentially paying for a service that we’re not receiving

    @knightjleon @virginmedia May as well flick it off now. They won't do anything. Useless outfit who's outsourced their network management to a bunch of clowns.

    Charith Cabraal (@charithc85) reported

    @premierinn @virginmedia Not really. @virginmedia twitter told me to call their tech support, who told me wifi would be down all night and to email them for a refund. In reply to my email they told me to call their tech support. Joined up customer service it is not. Still waiting for an answer.

    @virginmedia I can’t get through to them because the robot insists that engineers are working on it. My call out appointment for Monday has been cancelled. I am losing faith and will be looking to switch. I am not held in to a contract. Your service has become too unreliable lately.

    Back on the phone with @VirginMedia...have made two formal complaints, talked to a supervisor, and am now on the line with "customer service." CS rep tried to upsell me on their business broadband service and told me I would get better service/compensation with that plan. WTF.

    @Dark_Angel_Arus @virginmedia I've never known Virgin Media to be anything other than useless followed by rude. I won't go near them with a barge pole.

    @kevbn17 @virginmedia @TomMockridgeVM What an absolute disgrace this company are. They have such a bad name. I wouldn’t touch them with a barge pole. Maybe get in touch with a reporter from a daily newspaper.... I’m sure they would love to hear about your experience with this company. Name and shame👍.

    Well, looks like we are going to be without broadband service for 72 hours! @VirginMedia, @richardbranson, @Virgin et al. Your phone support has been terrible and I can't believe that your infrastructure is this bad. It's unacceptable as a customer to pay for such shoddy service.

    @virginmedia your a joke VM. No internet for 2 days and the status update gets extended every time it gets close to the stated fix time. I’m unable to work from home. It was a mistake to signup with you. Will be moving as soon as it’s over. Sutton SM2 5

    @R_Bennett @virginmedia Yes ours has been down since yesterday. They keep saying it will be fixed by a certain time and then postpone it. Rubbish.
