    @virginmedia Yeah & someone promised to call back last week & they never. We’ve had no broadband since yesterday & it keeps acting up

  • leewhttngtn Lee Whittington (@leewhttngtn) reported from Hebburn, England

    Never felt so left down by @virginmedia after years of being a loyal customer my bill has increased by £20pm for no extra services when I rang to cancel I was offered £1 discount! To say I was insulted is an understatement, shocking service loyalty counts for nothing!!! Cancelled

    @virginmedia honestly get a ******* grip@of your WiFi man ******* joke if my tv has a known problem in my area. Why ******** Is my WiFi ******* down then *****

  • hilly_1986 Iain Hill (@hilly_1986) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia Say no known issues. Wired is fine but WiFi all over the house is shocking! Tried moving the hub but can only go so far as it’s restricted by the wires.

  • M_RashidAmin Mohammed Rashid Amin (@M_RashidAmin) reported from South Shields, England

  • barbarafoggo Barbara Foggo (@barbarafoggo) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia I really don’t think you can. Please provide me with an email address for the complaints department. I will write a full and detailed email and if no resolution I will forward my complaint to Ofcom.

  • barbarafoggo Barbara Foggo (@barbarafoggo) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    Wow @virginmedia amazingly poor customer services on many levels. Not your best moment @richardbranson

    @virginmedia your shit broadband and tv service is down again for the third time this week and it’s only Tuesday WTF do I pay you for! I bet I don’t see a refund for what you don’t deliver 😡

  • greav41 Paul Greaves (@greav41) reported from Gateshead, England

    @simonrim @virginmedia Ended up removing them from our lives due to atrocious (being generous here) customer service. Even now they are threatening £130 charge due to them not sending out the box return kit.

  • lalunatic michael lamb (@lalunatic) reported from Sunderland, England

    @simonrim @virginmedia Worst company going

  • godisageordie andy kindred (@godisageordie) reported from Gateshead, England

    @neeta68 @virginmedia Worst customer service I have encountered is with Virgin media and mobile , needless to say I am no longer one of their customers, good luck

  • neeta68 Anita Whelan (@neeta68) reported from Gateshead, England

    @Davidwillough19 @virginmedia After another 22 minutes and explaining it all again, calmly and politely I may add, the other person has hung up, unbelievable! @virginmedia can you help me please

  • neeta68 Anita Whelan (@neeta68) reported from Gateshead, England

    16 mins on hold to @virginmedia before I got through to someone who said she needed to transfer me to another department, the recorded message of that department said the number no longer exists and gave me the original phone number to ring! Some customer service that!!!

  • TaylorBurgen93 Taylor (@TaylorBurgen93) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia your customer service team is about as much use as a chocolate fire guard! Routers not working switch off then back on... it’s broken I can book an engineer for Saturday....

  • kicka11 ⚕ ᑕᕼᖇIS ⚕ (@kicka11) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia This lithium service you use is to get people off social media. It obfuscates and is unable to resolve anything. I'll take my chance in the legal system and with independent ombudsman.

  • kicka11 ⚕ ᑕᕼᖇIS ⚕ (@kicka11) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia Worst customer service from any broadband company. Avoid like the plague.

  • RockcliffeFiles Rockcliffe Files (@RockcliffeFiles) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    Anyone else on @virginmedia getting “To Be Announced” on virtually every channel. Tried rebooting, switching on and off. Strikes me that VM has gone to shit recently. Loads of channels have gone, close to sacking it off.

  • trisgallagher Hot Acid Rhythms (@trisgallagher) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia Every single day for the last week my router just turns itself off and starts to update or drops out completely. Paying a lot of money for this service and it just isn’t good enough.

  • Wardixo Jonathon Ward (@Wardixo) reported from South Shields, England

    Shoutout to @vmbusiness who after 5 days told me to reset my router and have now told me they will simply continue to monitor the problem. No stream until NationWars now where we pray it’s going to be better.

  • neosalad neosalad (@neosalad) reported from Walker Gate, England

    @SundSaeed @virginmedia Engineer booked for Tuesday. Not happy. No football! No @carltonkirby #homeofcycling AND NO xbox @GearsofWar times on Saturday NIGHT. TESTS SAY NO Issues. But there is issues. #NE6

  • neosalad neosalad (@neosalad) reported from Walker Gate, England

    Nice one @virginmedia I've missed all the 2nd half of the match now. No BB, no Tivo. And your still billing me a higher rate than was agreed when I did the tests which say no issues in my area. Tried resets.

  • GlocketCosplay ✾Bam Bam✾ (@GlocketCosplay) reported from Dunston, England

    Yeah great, I lose my TFT ranked after hard winning most of it because @virginmedia internet service goes down more consistently then most men.

  • lukejameson17 luke jameson (@lukejameson17) reported from Sunderland, England

    @virginmedia right you want to explain why my broadband is at 4mbps when there’s no “issue” in my area... hate to tell you there clearly ******* is

  • andychristie999 ac (@andychristie999) reported from Sunderland, England

    @virginmedia over the last few years virgin media internet has got worse the people that work in the call centres are so abrupt and rude I’ve called approximately 10 in the last 5 months and still have a intermittent fault on my internet service !!!!

  • ThunderbirdWPC Tracey Ainsley (@ThunderbirdWPC) reported from Whickham, England

    @virginmedia The person that put me on hold said it looked like there was a problem in our area and tried to put me through to technical help but after music droning on for ages it just stopped. Have given up and watching a dvd instead

  • ThunderbirdWPC Tracey Ainsley (@ThunderbirdWPC) reported from Whickham, England

    Been hanging on phone to @virginmedia for 19 mins and then got cut off! Was 54 mins the other week. Do you think we have time just to sit around! Problems with tv service! Same yesterday in our NE16 area

  • Selwynsaint Selwyn St.Bernard🇹🇹🇬🇩 (@Selwynsaint) reported from Longbenton, England

    If @virginmedia offer you a 6 month free upgrade do not accept it. It is a way of locking you into a further contract. Poor service as always

  • jameshedges4 James Robert Hedges (@jameshedges4) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia I need someone to contact me immediately as I need to make a serious complaint about service. Completely ready to escalate to higher management as this incompetence of this company is a disgrace

  • brtoon Brian Reid (@brtoon) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia @honestlyhelen I've had similar feelings, my bill has rocketed by £11 per month over the last few months for my TV only service as Virgin only offer discounts now for multi package deals, loyalty no longer rewarded it seems 🤔

  • NuttyRichie Richard Payne (@NuttyRichie) reported from South Shields, England

    @MrChrisWynn @Simon21ne @virginmedia @nowtvhelp @SkyHelpTeam I managed one week before cancelling! Sky says I have so many devices that it’s slowing the hub down, in 2019 that’s piss poor

  • NuttyRichie Richard Payne (@NuttyRichie) reported from South Shields, England

    Another blackout on @virginmedia

  • minkewales minkewales (@minkewales) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @Dabooka @skybiggerpic @virginmedia It was my second attempt to be fair. First time they reduced the price rise to £1.50 per month, then I rang back a few days later to cancel. Found a better deal elsewhere but price was the driver for wanting to leave. Lovely @virginmedia agent was able to help!

  • kicka11 ⚕ ᑕᕼᖇIS ⚕ (@kicka11) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia Worst broadband and cable provider of all time.

  • philippat Philippa Taylor (@philippat) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia good customer service , they asked if they could ring me back in 15 mins due to his PC not working , now 2.5 hours later and I am still waiting , tried ringing them back and been on hold for 28 mins now 😡

  • toniaadiexx T (@toniaadiexx) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia I’ve already spoken to someone on the phone who reset the network, but that didn’t work. I also tried re-starting everything and that also didn’t work, the box itself is very slow now also.

  • VictoriaBarry82 Vicki barry (@VictoriaBarry82) reported from Sunderland, England

    @virginmedia hi can someone help me with my broadband

  • Barrymore_Jones Michael Jones (@Barrymore_Jones) reported from Sunderland, England

    @virginmedia I need help

  • sheeshkebab Ian K (@sheeshkebab) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia I’m not after any account info though, so no need to go through security. Neither of my parents are very technical nor do I have access to the device showing the problem.

  • LiamCottam Liam A Cottam (@LiamCottam) reported from Hebburn, England

    @virginmedia Everyone was fine (eventually). The feedback is simple. If I can self serve setting up and managing my account I should be able to self serve cancel.

  • neosalad neosalad (@neosalad) reported from Walker Gate, England

    @NatalieeeLoweee @virginmedia I had this issue. Got home from work to watch charity shield #MCILIV after avoiding the score and it was unwatchable because of the sound issues for me so I gave up. Will just watch #motd tonight instead. #nothappy

  • tenaka66 Paul 'The View' Carver (@tenaka66) reported from Cramlington, England

  • SkesaGB Skesa (@SkesaGB) reported

    @_danodayo_ Ah that explains it lmao. It’s a shame really bc the people in the UK. Have to go with the more expensive and less useful support wise companies bc they still offer the best we can get . I just wish Virgin media was available in my area

  • SiRoberts1981 Si (@SiRoberts1981) reported

    @Elmomcd @virginmedia to be fair, I've heard its fantastic in the chez area but terrible round here

  • BruceHannay Bruce Hannay (@BruceHannay) reported

    @masadbaig @virginmedia Was out for 30 minutes here, so not a disaster. Just unusual for everything to go down at the same time.

  • EziRage2k pFm_EzikealRage (@EziRage2k) reported

    Argggh another night ruined by @virginmedia the speed's are all over the place and the TV box is running slow as hell :(

  • kaejlaab The General (@kaejlaab) reported

    @virginmedia issues still not fixed so tried to call again but your customer service team just ignoring calls now. Let them ring for 3 min and then sends out a busy tone. Great customer service.

  • dougle13 russell deegan (@dougle13) reported

    @virginmedia I'm trying to watch something on Netflix and am getting the error code ao1, I've called your helpline but it is closed, what is the point of this. This is the 3rd time in as many weeks that I have had a problem with netflix
