    @virginmedia its for my broad band service

  • Stickings90 Graeme Stickings (@Stickings90) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia what was my TiVo box meant to be updating. I woke in the night to find it on and the screen saying it was updating software, don't switch off. I rang 151 to find out, but the automatic system said there was an issue and sent a restart pulse 1/2

  • TheHamfather Andrew Weatherhead (@TheHamfather) reported from Blyth, England

    @Kasiohead_ @virginmedia I have no advice for you but I would like to add my voice to the fact they are utterly terrible.

  • Darylx Daryl (@Darylx) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia Can you please help me. I've rang twice to upgrade my TiVo box free upgrade. Tried online can't do it. First time cut off. Web chat I tried was told I had to phone.40 mins in second time lady was having system issues so transferred me and guess what I was cut off

  • BevFrankland Bev Frankland (@BevFrankland) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia Just send me the new box that You insist I need so that I can get the service I'm paying for

  • BevFrankland Bev Frankland (@BevFrankland) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia That's all well and good but you have insisted we update our box or it will not work, your website link is not working, text service and chat not responding and your telephone advisor insists I buy a new service whilst your letter states its free! Not paying more for less!!

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

    Cancelled @virginmedia Starplayz subscription as they have no channel number and no app to search for programmes! Crazy and call centre staff don’t understand why this is a problem. Don’t waste £5 a month.

  • BevFrankland Bev Frankland (@BevFrankland) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia you write stating have to upgrade to free tivo box & I must contact you 2 arrange. Web site doesn't work, no answer online chat, no answer on text and phone advisor tries to sell me an upgrade. Then email advising price rise in inbox. - total joke!!!

  • ThomasMcGowan1 Thomas McGowan (@ThomasMcGowan1) reported from Gateshead, England

    right shower of shite the customer service from @virginmedia paying for monthly for nothing 😡🤬

  • rl_chris_higham Chris Higham (@rl_chris_higham) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia £20 a month 'existing customer' penalty on the best you can offer me Vs the best new customer deal is just too much, afraid that's a cancellation from a 10 years loyal customer. £240 is a lot of money!

  • ewhittle_ Emily Whittle (@ewhittle_) reported from Walker Gate, England

    The worst part about being an adult is having to do things like talk to the brain dead people behind virgin media

  • Stickings90 Graeme Stickings (@Stickings90) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia I have received from you an incomplete text message regarding changes to Virgin Media Project and Mobile Rescue Tech support, as from 31 August, but does not say what. What are these changes

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

    @danielpwood1 @virginmedia I don’t have a regional accent so am normally easily understood, I’m also very patient, enjoy speaking to the Indian guys about cricket, but tonight it was unprofessional and my near thirty years service to VM in all it’s guises rendered irrelevant

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

    @virginmedia It’s difficult to articulate in a tweet but speaking to someone in an offshore contact centre who has a very poor grasp of English is extremely frustrating. There is no malice in this, it’s just a statement of fact, I couldn’t make myself understood, it took 4 calls and 75 mins.

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

    @RevDubbleD @virginmedia Absolutely appalling service today. The attitude of the people I dealt with was staggering for a customer centric organisation.

  • ian_safc_1974 Ian (@ian_safc_1974) reported from Dunston, England

    @lisadunn1978 @virginmedia They sound awful. Is broadband itself any better

  • TheToon1892 ⓃⓊⒻⒸ ①⑧⑨② (@TheToon1892) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia @VasBlackwood It could be your staff need training in how to offer professional customer service.... Most haven't got a clue

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

    @virginmedia There seems to be a network problem. The box had a green light flashing. Our phones & iPads are connect but the sky boxes don’t seem to be. Can I DM you please

  • d_n_g_x 𝑫𝒂𝒏𝒊𝒆𝒍𝒍𝒆🐸 (@d_n_g_x) reported from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    @virginmedia It was @Stacey_MW_WL with the problem

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

    @virginmedia No known issues. It’s only wireless speeds. There is no excuse for this, it happens to me almost everyday. I would like to discuss it with someone as I tried at the weekend and was completely fobbed off by your service team. I pay nearly £50 a month and often have to use my 4G

  • amymccordx Amy McCord (@amymccordx) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia I was speaking with an agent an hour ago due to an issues with WiFi. They said they’d 100% ring me back in 30 mins as we did a hard reset of the booster. It’s been another 30 mins since then and no one has called. #notmyday

  • AL_SNR58 Allan Davis (@AL_SNR58) reported from Sunderland, England

    @virginmedia I have informed the manager that I wanted to make a complaint and he has noted it. I am just starting to calm down now

  • AL_SNR58 Allan Davis (@AL_SNR58) reported from Sunderland, England

    @virginmedia Tomorrow. This has been going on for over two weeks intermittent but the way I was treated was not the way to treat a loyal customer

  • AL_SNR58 Allan Davis (@AL_SNR58) reported from Sunderland, England

    @lisadunn1978 @virginmedia I have just had hell on and demanded to speak to a manager. At first I was told there was no issue in our area and it was the router then the manager has told me that there is a problem in our area

  • scottilderton Scott Ilderton (@scottilderton) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia on hold for 46 mins so far having select options to cancel. The guy the system put me through to cant do this🙄 So i’m back on hold what horrific service #operationkeepthemallonhold

  • AllinsonsPhoto AllinsonsPhotography (@AllinsonsPhoto) reported from Gateshead, England

    @jeffsprogress @virginmedia I changed to Virgin because BT would drop out regularly in the middle of the Moto GP. Used to have a great service with Sky but they charge an extra 30 something quid for BT Sport

  • AllinsonsPhoto AllinsonsPhotography (@AllinsonsPhoto) reported from Gateshead, England

    @jeffsprogress @virginmedia And no I can’t match it Virgin Media fails almost every week, we have a whole other level of shit service compared to you 👎

  • AllinsonsPhoto AllinsonsPhotography (@AllinsonsPhoto) reported from Gateshead, England

    @jeffsprogress @virginmedia I didn’t miss your point I just do t agree with it - if we pay for service everyday it should work every single day. I do not consider any failure to be a good service

  • AllinsonsPhoto AllinsonsPhotography (@AllinsonsPhoto) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia @jeffsprogress It didn’t work for a day and you think it is a great experience and good service. With that attitude no wonder we get such a shit service

  • AllinsonsPhoto AllinsonsPhotography (@AllinsonsPhoto) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia And our Virgin TV has failed again your service truly is shite and a waste of my money looks like we are left with terrestrial TV through our always reliable tv aerial again you should be deeply ashamed of your outrageously poor service 👎

  • AllinsonsPhoto AllinsonsPhotography (@AllinsonsPhoto) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia Back up and working again I look forward to the next time your service fails - the worst service I’ve experienced since the demise of dial up internet and party line telephones 👎

  • AllinsonsPhoto AllinsonsPhotography (@AllinsonsPhoto) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia I have the App but having it confirm what I already know is no help whatsoever. Instead of investing in Apps that confirm your service is not fit for purpose why not invest in providing an unfailing service to customers. Currently you take money for services you can’t deliver

  • AllinsonsPhoto AllinsonsPhotography (@AllinsonsPhoto) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia It was just internet TV that day but today all your services telephone, TV (all channels) and the broadband are repeatedly failing - no idea why I get billed for such poor service I mean the phone FFS do you think it’s 1984!

  • AllinsonsPhoto AllinsonsPhotography (@AllinsonsPhoto) reported from Gateshead, England

    Looks like @virginmedia are just as rubbish as @BTtv their rubbish service has been failing all night making watching catchup TV a right pain looks like I need another provider

  • 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

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

    For all the poor sods like me who had nothing but trouble today! #VirginMedia #Virginmediaoutage

  • 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

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • james2908 #PeoplesVote James (@james2908) reported

    @virginmedia Still nothing. Router still has no lights and no internet. Did eventually get through to tech support who said we had to wait 2 days and call back if still not working!

  • leanne_wayland1 Leanne Wayland (@leanne_wayland1) reported

    So glad we are leaving @virginmedia in the next 2 weeks. Woke up to no Internet again. Seems to be a reacurring problem.

  • type1don type1don (@type1don) reported

    @virginmedia no internet again come on can’t get through to customer services what a joke

  • ingoodfaith000 SUIA Balthazar (@ingoodfaith000) reported

    @virginmedia Internet has down for hours but you will still take the full monthly amount on time for services not rendered. Sounds perfectly fair.

  • sdale156 Samuel Dale (@sdale156) reported

    @virginmedia I need help with my iPhone, and I am not going to Apple I need to speak to virgin media mobile for this

  • kevdeep2013 Kevin (@kevdeep2013) reported

    @virginmedia my virgin media is down in walsall

  • NzRui ajm (@NzRui) reported

    @virginmedia Ay yo @virginmedia my Internet has been down for an hour and I can't do anything

  • Harmoniemini Jade (@Harmoniemini) reported

    Annnnnd my internet is down again. Not surprised since the internet has been shoddy for the past month now but all your employees tell me over the phone is they’ll fix my energy levels or to reset the router. Paying £60+ for this mess, no thanks. @virginmedia

  • NadineMcNally3 Nadine McNally (@NadineMcNally3) reported

    @virginmedia can u please fix yiur internet 🙏🏼😂😂

  • TheNathanNS Nathan S (@TheNathanNS) reported
