  • TomRoss_ Tom Ross (@TomRoss_) reported from Southend-on-Sea, England

    @virginmedia Yes there are issues showing. But this is direct through the TiVo box not the app.

  • SpencerSCarter Spencer Carter (@SpencerSCarter) reported from South Ockendon, England

    Really shocked, but sadly not surprised, by the service from @virginmedia as an existing customer for many years, I’m overlooked in favour of new ones. No care and lack of customer loyalty. Will be talking about it on my show tomorrow

  • Kelly_QPR Kelly 🐰 (@Kelly_QPR) reported from Rochester, England

    @virginmedia We were told we would get a call back within 72 hrs on Sat morn but no call. Every time we call we spend 90 mins on hold. We are new customers & have numerous problems. Now considering cancelling due to appalling customer service. Please can someone contact me.

  • neilmead Neil Mead (@neilmead) reported from Gillingham, England

    Awful customer service from @virginmedia As a long-standing customer I only called to see if there were any offers available, but of course these are only for new customers and told I have best deal already. I doubt that. Same old story. #disappointed

  • paulparker81 Paul Parker (@paulparker81) reported from Basildon, England

    @virginmedia online chat help absolute waste of an hour of my life, now on hold for 20 mins so far. Disgusting customer service.

  • roxcreeve Roxc Reeve (@roxcreeve) reported from Southend-on-Sea, England

  • roxcreeve Roxc Reeve (@roxcreeve) reported from Southend-on-Sea, England

    @virginmedia My direct debit failed I wasn’t sent a letter just got cut off I was then threatened to pay 3 months in advance new customers don’t even do that I put in a complaint no one called me back this was last week

  • roxcreeve Roxc Reeve (@roxcreeve) reported from Southend-on-Sea, England

    The way my mum has been treated by virgin media this week is disgusting as a paying customer she’s been in tears and they’ve violated there terms and conditions @richardbranson your staff should be ashamed of themselves

  • TicTac1985 Suzanne D Edwards (@TicTac1985) reported from Gillingham, England

    @virginmedia this awful service is part of the reason I'm leaving. Over an hour of trying to get told lines are busy, no queue or anything just call back later

  • PamGayford Pam Gayford (@PamGayford) reported from Billericay, England

    @jules0455 @virginmedia We had no landline for 5 weeks,6 days..We just were told there was a problem at the exchange..But it seemed it was just our property..In the end Hubby told TalkTalk just what they could do,& it was resolved in 3 days...Very frustrating..Try to stay calm..💕x

  • alancollinspdb Alan Collins Rosell 🔶️🎗 (@alancollinspdb) reported from Gillingham, England

    @virginmedia Your customer service is a joke! I've been on the phone over an hour and spoken to 9 different people to be lied to and told the engineer tried knocking and calling my mobile this morning (I've been home all morning but had no one at the door and no missed calls).

  • alancollinspdb Alan Collins Rosell 🔶️🎗 (@alancollinspdb) reported from Gillingham, England

    It's 11:45. Having been awake until about 6 or so this morning for the election count, my alarm was set for 8 so I could be up in time for the @virginmedia engineer to fix my broadband. They'd be here between 8 and 12 they said. Clock's ticking...

  • LeePatmore Lee Patmore (@LeePatmore) reported from Basildon, England

    It’s a shame @Virgin only look after new customers & punish old customers. One less customer because of New Cystomer deals not available to look after current ones #ShameOnYou #Virgin #Virginmedia

  • ed_sugarbones ed booker (@ed_sugarbones) reported from Great Baddow, England

  • claighton89 Claigh Young (@claighton89) reported from Gillingham, England

    @virginmedia Each month I've had to make subsequent phone calls to have you rectify the bill. I called 2 or 3 times before this bill came out and was assured that it would not happen again. And as expected it has. Absolutely disgusting service!

  • claighton89 Claigh Young (@claighton89) reported from Gillingham, England

    @virginmedia Media Services. We were offered a deal back in July which was all sports, movies and kids channels for around £111. Since then we have had our wifi and box and each time I call about one of these issues you clear the deal from our account. This month billing us £215!!!

  • claighton89 Claigh Young (@claighton89) reported from Gillingham, England

    @virginmedia have the absolute worst customer service going! Have once again made a **** up with our bill, even after speaking to (and being lied to by) 3 different people on the phone! Absolute joke of a company!!!

  • claighton89 Claigh Young (@claighton89) reported from Gillingham, England

    @virginmedia @mahager This is still a problem and has been since Tuesday! For the amount people pay for Virgin it a disgustingly bad service!

  • buckers43 Andrew Buxton (@buckers43) reported from Basildon, England

    @virginmedia I've been a customer with you for 21 years and your customer service is not great, I'm paying through the roof for my package, the wifi is crap sometimes, your team has offered to take my bill down £20, but when I mentioned about replacing my hub, that will cost £35

  • yiddo71 Mark Gould (@yiddo71) reported from Rochester, England
