  • RobbyRSSRobot L🍩ui💲e (@RobbyRSSRobot) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @anemoneproject @virginmedia @virgeinmedia The account is suspended now. I'm going to guess a disgruntled customer!

  • RobbyRSSRobot L🍩ui💲e (@RobbyRSSRobot) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia No sorry I'm meaning the Internet on my virgin mobile phone is slow

  • Clarquey Simon Clark (@Clarquey) reported from Walker Gate, England

    Hi @virginmedia. Trying to call, text, WhatsApp my wife today attempting to sort out our children etc and completely unable to. My contract has just been increased. Pretty shocking service and I'm paying more! I would expect some compensation at the very least 😡 #VirginOutage

  • gordysocceruk gordon (@gordysocceruk) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia How long is this outage going to last been off for neatly 4 hours.

  • gilly562 Gill Anderson (@gilly562) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia no virgin mobile service, can’t make calls, can’t text or receive. No 4G. Been like this for an hour!! PLEASE CAN SOMEONE AT VIRGIN RESPOND!!! Lots of unhappy customers

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia I am sick of contacting yourselves regarding it. Your company does not seem to know which department I need to speak to. One minute It's customer care, then movers, then disconnections, who pass me back to customer care. #notaclue #virginmediasaga

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia So another tonight wasted last night on the phone to all your departments and still no resolution. Still trying to make me pay your staff's mistakes. #virginmediasaga #thieves

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia We asked at the time of there was any money outstanding and we were told no. We were never told it takes 30 days to cancel. Again poor service from yourselves. I don't have the complaint number no as your staff keep hanging up

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia Cancelled the account on 28th or 29th March. Was told by one of your staff members that the service would be cancelled immediately and that #virginmedia owed us just over £70. She also cancelled the direct debit, agreed to send a cheque for the balance to an alternative address

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    Things that have happened in the time it takes for @virginmedia to resolve a complaint. #Royalbaby has been born, #Liverpool beat Barca, Maya got caught on #Emmerdale, #iran have threatened to change their #nucleardear. #virginmediasaga

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia @virginmedia the Royal baby will have his own baby before you sort my issue out or answer the phone #virginmedia #virginmediasaga

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    @sky do you resolve customer complaints in less time than the 3 weeks @virginmedia need #imightneedanewprovider #coolingoffperiod #virginmediasaga

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia #virginmediasaga on hold to yourselves again. #youneednewholdmusic. Although I do find it ironic that you play a song with the lyrics 'I'm a sucker for you. The only suckers are the customers like me that can't seem to get issues resolved! #virginmedia #thieves

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia it's a shame I don't have a #timestone so I could go back and never get a service with you #stealingcustomersmoney

  • FSVPhotography FSV Photography (@FSVPhotography) reported from South Shields, England

    So your staff forgot to cancel my service properly and then conveniently raised two new bills rather than giving us the 70 pound you owe us. 2 X managers and not a clue between any of them #virginmedia #thieves #makethecustomerpayforyourmistakea

  • stevemhh Steve Mayne (@stevemhh) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia service down phone lines closed internet fecked no apology you are a disgrace #virginmediasucks #getyouracttogether #feelsliketheft #customerserviceisnil #whereismyrefund

  • Russell_Kain Russell Kain (@Russell_Kain) reported from Hebburn, England

    @virginmedia Hey its been like this for a while. I have the power socket scheduled to restart every night, but it isn't helping. Ive also reset to factory settings numerous times as well as try different wireless channels. WiFi is only part of the problem though as the issue exists on cable

  • Russell_Kain Russell Kain (@Russell_Kain) reported from Hebburn, England

    @virginmedia can you help me with a broadband technical issue. I have 200Mb, power cycle the router daily and still by the end of the day end up with super slow speeds. Less than 1Mb tonight. Thanks.

  • john_barrass John Barrass (@john_barrass) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia is your broadband down in this postcode NE261AG plz

  • MrPaulDH Paul Humphreys (@MrPaulDH) reported from Washington, England

    @virginmedia waiting waiting on the phone no internet at all now your Auto mated checking service says a problem need to speak to your CS. Waiting waiting 30 minutes now

  • mickeywhizz Michael Taylor (@mickeywhizz) reported from Newburn, England

    @markcatchlove @virginmedia Very much doubt it Mark; like I say- they have the market sewn up so can treat their existing customers with contempt.

  • Janthebestmam Janice (@Janthebestmam) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia i tried google and doesnt work.

  • Janthebestmam Janice (@Janthebestmam) reported from Walker Gate, England

    @virginmedia no just have to put password and email address in. The green tick appear then keeps saying sign in

  • mickeywhizz Michael Taylor (@mickeywhizz) reported from Newburn, England

    @virginmedia just had a very frustrating afternoon with your call centre trying to dump our landline which we never use. After 13 years as a customer it is particularly galling to then see on the comparison sites how much more you value new customers.

  • gemmafisher5 gemma fisher (@gemmafisher5) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia what an absolute #nightmare to #cancel my services because I’m movinghouse my call has been hung up on #twice now #1andahalf hours on the phone and I’m still on #hold 🤬

  • mightymagpie99 mightymagpie99 (@mightymagpie99) reported from Newburn, England

    @damieng5 @garethmck1987 @virginmedia @NETGEAR I agree. I have the same set up . With Virgin SH3 no wifi signal to conservatory. With Orbi mesh network wifi everywhere in house & in the garden too. Costs a bit more but woryh it IMO.

  • ll370 IanBurns (@ll370) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia 2 weeks back with you and my signal keeps dropping almost every single day, best internet provider. I think I have grounds to terminate my contract. What a joke

  • Stevedey Steve Dey (@Stevedey) reported from Newburn, England

    @virginmedia must be 8pm. Internets down 😂 #clockwork

  • bigpinkdressgnr BIG PINK DRESS (@bigpinkdressgnr) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia Your customer service was the worst ever One guy actually shouted at us Your TV never worked your internet went off at night We constantly had to reboot All while paying you a small fortune So no we won't be returning

  • hellsbells610 Hells Bells 🐧 (@hellsbells610) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia Thanks for your reply. I think there have been a few problems around where I live, but it seems to be ok now.

  • hellsbells610 Hells Bells 🐧 (@hellsbells610) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia are there issues in the Gateshead area. Broadband keeps on going down. Tried turning hub off/on, but not helping.

  • Lauras95 Lauraaaa (@Lauras95) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia It was for my internet and TV account. I've managed to do it on my housemates app as they had no issues with the app.

  • Lauras95 Lauraaaa (@Lauras95) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia It's always 47.37 when it should be a straight £47. We do everything online and never get paper stuff to do with our package or billing

  • stephwales_ S t e p h . ♡ (@stephwales_) reported from Gateshead, England

  • Janthebestmam Janice (@Janthebestmam) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

  • TheToon1892 ⚽NUFC 1892⚽ (@TheToon1892) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

  • LisaSmythe_RNA Lisa (@LisaSmythe_RNA) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia please sort out the internet! I’ve ran out of mobile date because the WiFi is terrible!

  • Adam_baker1490 Adam Baker (@Adam_baker1490) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia shocking customer service. how do you expect to keep loyal customers when you don’t notify them of there contract ending and giving them a new deal and nearly double the bill 😡 😡

  • billgibbon Bill Gibbon (@billgibbon) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia Thanks for your continued support. All’s clear today - and your colleague on the phone said they would monitor the situation and let us know if anything needed to be done. Lots of examples of this happening online. Putting it down to just being another victim.

  • billgibbon Bill Gibbon (@billgibbon) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    It seems our landline number has been spoofed - have received dozens of calls responding to a request to call back. Have reported this to a helpful @virginmedia, but finding out ‘advice’ online pretty useless. Sit and wait it out seems to be the solution.

  • Bodmall Bodh (@Bodmall) reported from Shiney Row, England

    @virginmedia 20:00 and just about to watch a film with the family but no internet hadn’t gone down again gg Virgin

  • piggypics Les(piggypics)Pigg (@piggypics) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia Yes says no issues but read a few forum say virgin media are aware of it but not interested in fixing it.

  • bruceallinson Bruce Allinson (@bruceallinson) reported from Gateshead, England

    @SkyUK Thanks but you charge way too much especially for BT Sport (can’t do without my Moto GP) I might go back to BT Vision, they are rubbish with broadband dropping out as well but not as shit as @virginmedia has been

    @virginmedia I have put in a complaint 2 months ago. The contract was cancelled. Despite numerous calls and being called a liar. You are still taking my money. Not heard a peep from you. I cannot speak to call centre as they are the problem and who called me a liar!

  • koo1990 Kirsty Dance (@koo1990) reported

    @virginmedia Yes and we also requested to have the hub upgrade when you was doing them for free but we never recieved anything!

  • rolfeofficial Tom (@rolfeofficial) reported

    @virginmedia It is for a media account, how am I supposed to find my account number, when I ring I need it to get any further! plus its an issue that cant be sorted on Twitter

  • KaiPhillipsYT Kai (@KaiPhillipsYT) reported

    just yesterday i was singing @virginmedia praises, my 5GB of free data has disappeared i guess it was literally just sunday. bullshit what a terrible company, always something with these guys 😂

  • dy0b1 Gregor 📷 (@dy0b1) reported

    @Frankline141 @j0toro @virginmedia @ThreeUK @ThreeUKSupport Absolutely shocking way for them to treat their consumers.

  • AJ_Rashid Aqib Javed Rashid (@AJ_Rashid) reported

    @virginmedia I have tried the troubleshooting. I’ve even got a Powerline Adapter and the signal is rubbish. It doesn’t make sense why the signal should be so poor when I pay so much for the Wi-fi service. I don’t have a wired connection for anything. Everything is through Wi-fi.

  • 1972CW1972 catherine (@1972CW1972) reported from Garston, England

    @virginmedia seriously listening to stupid music for 12 minutes, gets thru, told to hold and then cut off 😫

  • desertlens desertmonk (@desertlens) reported

    @virginmedia Well we are down again I’m on my iPhone rang the 150 number they did the auto test now sending a signal problem is this has now been dine 3 times since last week and unable to speak to anyone!!

  • cssjazzhands Sam George (@cssjazzhands) reported

    @virginmedia Hi AMB, I'm sorry to say that I have and have yet to see it report a fault with the service. I've also regularly used the service test provided from logging in - to similar results even during times when our service drops completely. I'm sure you can understand my frustration.

  • Rod1musPr1meFan Curtis Frost (@Rod1musPr1meFan) reported

    @virginmedia When I spoke to virgin media Saturday they said it was an intermitting signal
