    @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

  • 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

  • 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

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

    @virginmedia I don’t care anymore, it’s been like this since installed, both service and customer care @virginmedia are a waste of space that I have no more time for you and your shit service are getting no more of my time 👎

  • sarahmiles82 Sarah Miles (@sarahmiles82) reported from Hebburn, England

    @virginmedia I have however after waiting on hold an hour he was most unhelpful and didn’t seem to be bothered about me being a customer for 6 years and now leaving because the “deal” he offered was pitiful

  • WashingtonMayor Keith Tatters (@WashingtonMayor) reported from Washington, England

    @virginmedia I want to cancel a sim only account that I no longer use, but your website doesn’t make it easy. In fact it is impossible.

  • TonyLavelle78 🏳️‍🌈Tony🏳️‍🌈 (@TonyLavelle78) reported from Sunderland, England

    @virginmedia Never been suggested to do so!

  • TonyLavelle78 🏳️‍🌈Tony🏳️‍🌈 (@TonyLavelle78) reported from Sunderland, England

    @virginmedia They said no problems in my area and to just keep unplugging it for 5 minutes when it has pens which I explain I have been doing every day sometimes twice a day but to be honest like most offshore call centres they have no people skills or interest at all

  • lisasmythe95 Lisa (@lisasmythe95) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia Our internet is very slow and our devices keep disconnecting from it for this reason. We pay a lot of money for something that isn’t working very well.

  • betham87 mark b (@betham87) reported from Whitley Bay, England

  • xxxiA3xxx Bryan Abarintos (@xxxiA3xxx) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @TheToxicRanger Oh, that's were they good at, -apologies - refer you to a website link - refer you to incompetent tech desk - engineer will come out and can't figure out how to fix the issue - oh yeah. Infinity! You will be infinite on the phone reporting same issue #virginmedia

  • xxxiA3xxx Bryan Abarintos (@xxxiA3xxx) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia Oh yeah. I will pay cancellation charge of £168 for the service that is not working! Even your 5 different engineers cannot fix the issue! #virginmedia #neveragainvirginmedia

  • xxxiA3xxx Bryan Abarintos (@xxxiA3xxx) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia Nothing! No calls from complaints team! That is 4 months of complaint

  • SarahSpence83 Sarah Spence (@SarahSpence83) reported from South Shields, England

    @virginmedia I suggest your engineers at least attempt to use a doorbell if no response from knocking! 4 hrs wasted, also your times aren’t great when you have to drop off and pick up from school! TV not working properly for months now yet costs me £100 a month 🤔🤔#virginmedia

  • lisawillis76 Lisa Willis (@lisawillis76) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia I will be happy, just cancel my service, lift the cancellation charges. In the first place we shouldn't be charge to cancel the service, it because of your poor service!

  • xxxiA3xxx Bryan Abarintos (@xxxiA3xxx) reported from Whitley Bay, England

    @virginmedia possible issues in ne8 area. Can't ring it in as no phone, internet or tv.

  • MickKMcCoy michael keith mccoy (@MickKMcCoy) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia Maybe an explanation as to why it is going to take so long for an engineer to look at the problem would help. It unfortunately won't help my 12yr old son with learning difficulties understand why he can't use his iPad 😡

  • MickKMcCoy michael keith mccoy (@MickKMcCoy) reported from Gateshead, England

    @virginmedia your tech support service is shocking. Waited 4 days over a week ago for a replacement TiVo box. Now broadband has gone off & I have to wait till Sat for an engineer. #lookingforanewserviceprovider
