  • mathers1981 Stephen Marshall (@mathers1981) reported from Reading, England

    @virginmedia absolute joke of a service. Try and leave them as they are having your pants down each month and it’s like trying to escape Alcatraz. Awful firm

  • RJHOTCHEF Ryan Wilson (@RJHOTCHEF) reported from Fleet, England

    @AlyInASpin @virginmedia Weird we are having the same problem #lag , @virginmedia whats the problem please. Very annoying now

  • gb20man Grant Baartman (@gb20man) reported from Bracknell, England

    @virginmedia Sorry to say that I contacted your online chat, but they offered no significant update other than 9th Sept for a fix and no offer of compensation as I am not experiencing a total loss of service. Not happy at all.

  • gb20man Grant Baartman (@gb20man) reported from Bracknell, England

    Intermittent network service from @virginmedia again, seems I need to use my reliable personal hotspot from @VodafoneUK - at least I have a fallback plan.

  • dionne_angus Dionne Angus (@dionne_angus) reported from Bracknell, England

    @virginmedia trying to watch a film on Netflix only for my tv to keep flashing up wired LAN cable is disconnected then wired network is connected what is going on I pay for virgin and Netflix and getting fed up

  • KernowPrincess Lynn Gower (@KernowPrincess) reported from Reading, England

    @virginmedia internet appears to be up and down for RG30 2QT

  • melvinabrose millie p RN RHV QN (@melvinabrose) reported from High Wycombe, England

    Virgin media just rubbish. Just so disappointed in a service that for the past 2 months has been rubbish. Worked all over the house and even in the garden for all the time we have been customers but now only working on one side of the house and not upstairs.

  • spice1971 Graeme Spice (@spice1971) reported from Yateley, England

    @virginmedia Maybe you can pass on the fact 2 calls to two separate call centres (first was India, second Scotland) both dropped mid call. Assuming it wasn’t the operators maybe there is an issue. Didn’t happen to Philpines on third call. Annoying when hold times are long

  • mikeyh817 Mike (@mikeyh817) reported from Woodley, England

    @virginmedia According to your fault page there’s nothing wrong yet when you call they agree there’s a problem. Again poor service from yourselves when your departments can’t agree!!!

  • mikeyh817 Mike (@mikeyh817) reported from Woodley, England

    @virginmedia putting on such excellent service again 😡😡😡😡 broadband been down now for over three hours. You clowns really are useless. Really wish we’d left you when we had the chance 😡😡😡😡😡

  • woodsa164 Alex George (@woodsa164) reported from Wokingham, England

    @virginmedia The worst Broadband provider 😡 The worst customer service 😡

  • MartinJerrard Martin Jerrard (@MartinJerrard) reported from Farnborough, England

    @virginmedia No as I am about to drive to work when I should be working from home as I do each Friday and Monday except poor service is preventing me doing do. I will make a formal complaint tonight as this is the second time this week.

  • MartinJerrard Martin Jerrard (@MartinJerrard) reported from Farnborough, England

    @dinger3805 @virginmedia It's become a bit of a joke which is not funny anymore as I have lost 2 days pay now because of this given the price we pay. Appualing service at the moment.

  • MartinJerrard Martin Jerrard (@MartinJerrard) reported from Farnborough, England

    @virginmedia Just done that and again no issues reported. This is the second time this week I have had no connectivity. Just tried a reset and still nothing. How do I get an engineer out as this is becoming tiresome now given the price we pay.

  • MartinJerrard Martin Jerrard (@MartinJerrard) reported from Farnborough, England

    Slightest hint of bad weather and here we go again. it's only slightly damp here but already working from home has failed before it's even started. Think its time to switch ISP as this is becoming all to frequent from @virginmedia.. 2 lost days of work/pay this mth already.

  • MartinJerrard Martin Jerrard (@MartinJerrard) reported from Farnborough, England

    @virginmedia @Virgin_Victoria @AaronGaben Virgin says no issues in my area but all I am getting is flashing green arrows and no connectivity... full reset and switched off 3 tokes but to no avail.

  • MartinJerrard Martin Jerrard (@MartinJerrard) reported from Farnborough, England

    @Virgin_Victoria @virginmedia Thank you. Virgin Boffin says no issues in area. I have carried out 3 x fully resets and all I am getting is flashing areos and horizontal lines.

  • mikeyh817 Mike (@mikeyh817) reported from Woodley, England

    Can I just say again @virginmedia is absolute shite. Had no internet for nearly an hour but “their system is down” so they can’t check it. Piss poor from this company

  • i96jms Jane (@i96jms) reported from Fleet, England

    @virginmedia We are going around in circles. Your team just go through the same script each time we call. Please arrange escalation to a manager to investigate why your support team cannot resolve issues due to flawed process.

  • i96jms Jane (@i96jms) reported from Fleet, England

    @virginmedia When I phoned and used the chat they said the same thing. We have already called many times so would prefer you to discuss with your team and arrange a callback by someone who can help.

  • debsw18 Deborah (@debsw18) reported from Hook, England

    @virginmedia customer service is beyond shocking. Reps don’t listen, lie and refuse to help. Icing on the cake is my graduate daughter having £123.34 taken from her account DESPITE being told this would NOT happen. Going round in circles. No one ever phones back.

  • HappyH1983 Happyh1983 (@HappyH1983) reported from Reading, England

    When you ring @virginmedia to discuss your current package... 1st guy ruder than rude... Asked to talk to disconnections and get the best customer service. Turns out there was a deal to be made. Very happy now.

  • chrisscoff Chris Scoffield (@chrisscoff) reported from Bracknell, England

    @virginmedia service is appalling. Engineer arranged last Friday for today. Didn’t turn up. Now told it had been cancelled and we were informed. Lies Lies Lies. Broadband is almost unusabale. Can’t wait for contract to end so we can get sky.

  • aamer74 aamer habib (@aamer74) reported from Maidenhead, England

    @virginmedia my WiFi which is supposed to be the fastest speed is down every day now since four days and comes on in the morning the next day this is unacceptable service

  • JulianHull Julian Hull (@JulianHull) reported from Farnborough, England

    @virginmedia Thanks for replying TG, it’s back up now, however I do have a registered complaint about being charged £7.50 every month to upgraded to unlimited data on my broadband that has unlimited data.

  • sarahgtaylor sarahgtaylor (@sarahgtaylor) reported from Hurley, England

    Virgin mobile customer service is laughable. Can only use online chat if you want to buy something. #virgin #virginmedia #customerserviceorcustomercontol

  • Jimbwlah James Milward (@Jimbwlah) reported from Farnborough, England

    @virginmedia I don’t understand how you can get away with 10%+ yearly bill increase with no service improvement. I’ve been with you for 15 years and enough is enough, I’m switching. No other company does this - I’m speaking to the communication ombudsman, it needs investigation

  • JoshGilpin Josh Gilpin (@JoshGilpin) reported from Reading, England

    @virginmedia Your advisor would only provide the tracking number that I was already given the other day and told me to use that to find out what’s up with it, they were about as much help as yodels customer support

  • pepetideo Pepetideo (@pepetideo) reported from Didcot, England

    After waiting for over 1 hour to talk to a human on @virginmedia, can't help but feel like I was being trolled by the choice of background songs. One says "I could get used to this", other about being down down down... Somehow I don't think this is the best choice of mood music.

  • EJVMcLean Ed Vokes-Mclean (@EJVMcLean) reported from Farnborough, England

    @virginmedia is on demand and catch up showing faults as mine is not working again been playing up for two weeks now Gu14 9 area

  • mecompton74 Martin Compton (@mecompton74) reported from Maidenhead, England

    Can not wait until June 10th and we get to ditch @virginmedia - another issue with our service, but their service status page on their website is down so I have no idea what the problem is... #pitiful

  • OutdoorDaveGB David Bruton (@OutdoorDaveGB) reported from Reading, England

    @AnnaCorderoy @virginmedia In my case it took about 2 months to get a reliable service restored.

  • BRYCECHOBE Chobe Clarke (@BRYCECHOBE) reported from Wokingham, England

    @virginmedia no internet in Woking, always poor connection when I visit. 5g disappears, slow 2g. Now nothing. Father wasting money for this service.

  • mecompton74 Martin Compton (@mecompton74) reported from Maidenhead, England

    @virginmedia pathetic... entire service cancelled for six days without any notice... for repairs! 🤣 Awful company... @richardbranson you really need to be more careful about who gets to deliver franchised services under your Brand’s name. Truly awful... again!

  • BeckyMorrish13 Becky Morrish (@BeckyMorrish13) reported from Camberley, England

    Urgh @virginmedia are naff completely incomatant staff giving completely the wrong information and now won’t let me cancel awful service I’m now looking to @skyuk to give me a better service

  • MatthewPorter89 Matthew Porter (@MatthewPorter89) reported from Bracknell, England

    @virginmedia Please contact @CameronHeald as he is the sufferer of this poor poor service.

  • MatthewPorter89 Matthew Porter (@MatthewPorter89) reported from Bracknell, England

    Ridiculous, poor service @virginmedia

  • pamelab74027553 pamela brown (@pamelab74027553) reported from Bracknell, England

    Yaaa final bill from Talk Talk is on its way I have wasted so much money and time with this rubbish company. I had no service from them now I am back with Virgin Media I was such a Clutx to of changed, as soon as that bill comes in and I pay I will be happy😊😊😊😊

  • martinrowan Martin Rowan (@martinrowan) reported from Wokingham, England

    @dowenb @highlight If you’re using Virgin Media cable then this isn’t the same technology as the rate adaptive technology used in ADSL and VDSL, so you don’t have a sync speed to monitor. One issue you can have with Cable can be an increase in latency especially under load.

  • slough_womble Russell Earl (@slough_womble) reported from Didcot, England

    @virginmedia was on phone for over 2hrs yesterday sorting out why waiting on phone again already 30mins still no answer to find why still no internet... absolute awful customer service

  • GoFastAdy Ady (@GoFastAdy) reported from Fleet, England

    @virginmedia not even a reply = customer support 🙄

  • GoFastAdy Ady (@GoFastAdy) reported from Fleet, England

    @virginmedia my Internet is down in fleet hants any idea when this will be fixed 🤔

  • walshi01 Declan (@walshi01) reported from Marlow Bottom, England

    @virginmedia I will NOT cash the cheque and sum directed back to the account as I believe this is just a pro-rata amount due. Not compensation for lack of service or repayment of any kind

  • walshi01 Declan (@walshi01) reported from Marlow Bottom, England

    @virginmedia But yet, you cannot call me to discuss! I find the benefit of hiding behind a system laughable. Particularly as it is your company who cannot log complaints, log a cancellation or fix a long term problem from which you had 20+ calls over many months. I have a pic library of my tv

  • Loddonbrewery Loddon Brewery 🏉 🌹 (@Loddonbrewery) reported from Reading, England

    @virginmedia Not any more. There was an issue, all was meant to be fine at 6pm - but alas, here we are...

  • Loddonbrewery Loddon Brewery 🏉 🌹 (@Loddonbrewery) reported from Reading, England

    @virginmedia Broadband/TV down. Had a text from you saying all is working, but it's not.

  • jodystockford Jody Stockford (@jodystockford) reported from Camberley, England

    @virginmedia absolutely shocking customer service, ironically can’t even manage to do a disconnection correctly.

  • studiofitz Robert Fitzmaurice (@studiofitz) reported from Reading, England

    @virginmedia No, which is why I went to the problem of contacting you.

  • studiofitz Robert Fitzmaurice (@studiofitz) reported from Reading, England

    @virginmedia Broadband issues not resolved RG1 despite app & text message to the contrary. Have run diagnostic test twice that does correctly report an active issue. Please clarify fix time.

  • TheAghaSays Omar Agha (@TheAghaSays) reported from Maidenhead, England

    Service down in Maidenhead on Xmas eve and day. It’s been up and down for weeks now. Very shoddy, no way of accessing any recordings for today. #terribleservice #virginmedia

  • Desmocorsenet Desmocorse (@Desmocorsenet) reported

    @virginmedia I was promised a month refund last time which never appeared and now it's off again. Fed up I cannot work from home as I'm supposed to be able to. Shocking service and time for a change. I've been here since Nynex and it's never been this bad

  • Kolvencia 🍂Flo 🐊🐄🍂 (@Kolvencia) reported
