  • _Rafi93 Rafi (@_Rafi93) reported from Camden Town, England

    @virginmedia No change after rebooting both boxes (v6/hub). Nothing on the service status page. I’ve been through all of this before and was explicitly told if it happened again the cables would have to be re fitted

  • NicoleBennett88 Nicole Bennett (@NicoleBennett88) reported from Walthamstow, England

    @SkyUK giving me absolutely terrible customer service... all i want is better internet connection and they cannot fulfil the speed we should try and get and are telling me i have to pay to leave them!!! Ridiculous!! Not happy virgin media calls...!!!

  • ThePamFord Pam Ford (@ThePamFord) reported from Ilford, England

    @virginmedia very poor service, I've wasted my day off they're still not here, @wwrecorder #E18 recommendations for broadband service please #wanstead

  • _Rafi93 Rafi (@_Rafi93) reported from Camden Town, England

    @virginmedia I need an engineer to come back to my house, possibly to rewire everything as my tv service doesn’t work properly. The previous one got everything working again recently but said it might break again and if it does we would need to replace the cables coming from outside

  • ThePamFord Pam Ford (@ThePamFord) reported from Ilford, England

    @virginmedia still waiting for my engineer (8am to 12) you are wasting my only day off work to get my service back. Promises promises

  • Messy_BB Mercedes BB (@Messy_BB) reported from Camden Town, England

    @virginmedia Hi - your technician came and fixed the internet, but broke our phone line (: 👏🏼 help please

  • eilidhmuz Eilidh Murray (@eilidhmuz) reported from Tottenham, England

    @danslee @virginmedia Oh I feel your pain. Had such bad bad customer service with @virginmedia in the past.

  • danslee Dan Slee (@danslee) reported from Camden Town, England

    Several hours on and I'm still wincing at the frustrating incompetence of @virginmedia's customer services. I'm trying to go. The only way is by phone. But they cut me off after an hour largely on hold. #FreeDan.

  • MichelleMcGrade Michelle McGrade (@MichelleMcGrade) reported from Brentford, England

    No internet for 3 days engineers no show twice @virginmedia customer service best response- I’m sorry I‘ll book you another appointment at our convenience! Shocking!

  • jimiinc James Enck (@jimiinc) reported from Camberwell, England

    @virginmedia I wasn't complaining at all, just commenting on how Virgin is on top of its game. My broadband was only down for half an hour, no dramas. And your field tech was very friendly and helpful in explaining what was going on. All good here.

  • starsenic dicle erver (@starsenic) reported from Hackney, England

    AVOID VIRGIN MEDIA! I REPEAT, AVOID VIRGIN MEDIA! THEY WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE DIFFICULT AND WILL DO ANYTHING NOT TO HELP YOU ON THE PHONE! THEY HANG UP THE PHONE ON MY FACE! @virginmedia

  • johnnieego John Lyons (@johnnieego) reported from Hackney, England

    Hey @virginmedia, I'm only grudgingly a customer because we can't have a dish here. I certainly don't want to switch to your mobile. How about saving a tree or two and not sending me brochures all the bloody time. Ta.

  • tulsehillboy Lee Winter (@tulsehillboy) reported from Lambeth, England

    @virginmedia Truly dreadful customer service today. Spent three hours in “chat” and no further forward. 100mbps is only 3!!!

  • JonMarkDeane Jon Mark Deane (@JonMarkDeane) reported from Lambeth, England

    @virginmedia Broadband is down. Box is showing solid green base light, solid green WiFi light and a flashing green internet light. Reboot, lower cycling, full disconnection and reconnection achieves nothing. TV service fine (sans network features).

  • nabenza Ruth Brookarsh (@nabenza) reported from Watford, England

    @virginmedia @vmbusinesshelp I’m not business customer

  • northern_puddin Jason Hartley (@northern_puddin) reported from Kensington, England

    @virginmedia Thanks I checked earlier but it says no known issues. I also checked the guide for the lights on the front and it’s a connection problem / constant software download as it’s flashing green. Works for 5 mins then reboots and spends ages all flashing green again. 3 hours now.

  • mattsray Matt Ray (@mattsray) reported from Tottenham, England

    @virginmedia after 5 years of poor service finally call up to leave and I am kept on hold for 33mins and counting. It’s akin to hiding behind the curtains pretending not to be home!

  • AbFitNutrition Veronica Mitchell RD (@AbFitNutrition) reported from Richmond, England

    It’s so annoying how broadband cos try 2 screw existing customers. They suck u in with an offer better than their competitors, then each yr, they increase the price, but offers small reduction if you u stay with reduced service #VirginMedia

  • LazyValentina Lazy Valentina (@LazyValentina) reported from Croydon, England

    @virginmedia help! Something wrong with my router or Internet service. Authentication error, no Internet 😢

  • sinajtojayz Janis Sinaj (PISCES) (@sinajtojayz) reported from Ilford, England

    @virginmedia Di I get refunded for the days I have no WiFi internet or tv service ... Sky is offering me a better deal and I’ve accepted contract with virgin media has run its course

  • StevenCooke94 Steven Cooke (@StevenCooke94) reported from Poplar, England

    @virginmedia after months of phone calls with virgin they have finally resolved my problem thanks for the people that finally helped but some of your team need some proper training awful customer service!

  • PauleneCarr PauleneCarr (@PauleneCarr) reported from Croydon, England

    @virginmedia @MoneyTelegraph For last 2 months in the SW16 area VIRGIN TV & BROADBAND services has an ‘outage problem.’ Despite several engineer call outs the issue has not been resolved so no access to internet. Virgin please sort out and provide compensation for lack of service

  • ukwip Anthony Cohen (@ukwip) reported from London, England

  • chriswoods84 Woodsy (@chriswoods84) reported from Enfield Lock, England

    @virginmedia @ChalfontStRob Not sure about Robert but I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. It still isn't working. There's no response at all when you press sign in after entering username and password

  • chriswoods84 Woodsy (@chriswoods84) reported from Ealing, England

    @ChalfontStRob @mikebarthere @Shieldsy82 @virginmedia @SkyHelpTeam Yes I am. Still not working and virgin aren't being helpful at all

  • Murvalous1 Tom (@Murvalous1) reported from Hackney, England

    @virginmedia At least twice a month it has issues, now waiting 2 days for a network engineer, it's just overall down too often to rely on.

  • nabenza Ruth Brookarsh (@nabenza) reported from Harrow Weald, England

    @virginmedia @MoneyTelegraph we are a residential care home supporting vulnerable adults. We have been without a phone line since 26 June. Fix date of 15 July is too far away. Please divert my line

  • Morgannaredhead Morgz (@Morgannaredhead) reported from Islington, England

  • MKIQBAL786 Kamran Iqbal (@MKIQBAL786) reported from Walthamstow, England

    @virginmedia I have constant problems with my WiFi connection at home. Connection keeps dropping. Phone switches to mobile data. Called ur team and they keep saying everything is fine. They also said connection can drop if you are to close to the router or to far! What crap

  • johnrahers It's me, John (@johnrahers) reported from Lambeth, England

  • NadaShakour Nada Shakour (@NadaShakour) reported from Kensington, England

    @virginmedia So day 3 still no internet. Ur team promised to deal with it this morning at 10. Of course nothing happened and no one called. Now call centre telling me that there’s another outage in my area. Gave me a number to file a complaint. Ridiculous !!!

  • northern_puddin Jason Hartley (@northern_puddin) reported from Kensington, England

    No broadband since June 27 and told fix by July 9th. In central London. Wow. Just wow. Also despite calls still no explanation just a prepared script in a distant call centre. Internet is an essential service for business in the developed world @virginmedia @richardbranson

  • chrisTstraker Chris Straker (@chrisTstraker) reported from Epsom and Ewell District, England

    @virginmedia Please could someone let me know how to deal with issues, regarding mobile Wi-fi hotpspots and voicemail from abroad. Tried a number of times and yet to have any conversation, that didn’t require me repeating myself two or three times !!

  • kmckeand Kate McKeand (@kmckeand) reported from Wandsworth, England

    Seriously @virginmedia what is wrong with your internet in Wandsworth I pay £47 a month and the service is patchy cuts out all the time it’s supposed to be fast fibre broadband but it’s anything but at the moment!!

    @virginmedia We lost internet Friday night. Today Sunday morning support team say issue fixed in area and so created a new ticket nbre giving YOU another48hrs to solve it and at same time saying engineer will call within 3hrs. No call. Support unable to help. No Senior to speak to.

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @deborah_bonetti @virginmedia I live in sw5 and have been without broadband all day: I have been utterly appalled at the rudeness and ineptitude of their customer services people.

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @KatiaDelNegro @virginmedia Ps I can’t believe they are telling you to check your cables . The entire of sw5 and w8 is down

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @KatiaDelNegro @virginmedia Yes I am experiencing this too in sw5. Was staggered at the rude stance taken by customer services when I phoned up

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @LOLRoadhouse @virginmedia I too am appalled at the way I was treated by the virgin media customer services people . Suggest you complain to @ofcom

  • turboeddie08 Eddie Seber (@turboeddie08) reported from London, England

    @virginmedia Btoadband not working, postcode Rm10 8JT

  • deborah_bonetti Deborah Bonetti (@deborah_bonetti) reported from Kensington, England

    @virginmedia Thanks. The link says there are problems in the area and they should be fixed by 8pm but that’s a whole day using my mobile data instead of broadband! I am really disappointed.

  • edward_baran Edward Baran (@edward_baran) reported from Poplar, England

    @alandavies1 @virginmedia Having just experience this call centre I must agree. The level of unprofessionalism rudeness and incompetence was staggering. Especially towards a loyal customer of many years’ standing

    @TalkTalk I have no words for how shit your services are. I’m taking my talents to @virginmedia. Absolutely shambolic company F/O

  • Hamzah_Bhuta Hamzah Bhuta (@Hamzah_Bhuta) reported

    @haveapizzame Awesome. I've got it myself. I quit also from virgin media. Not because it was slow. Because of the prices. It keeps on fluctuating. Whereas sky sticks to the plan. Which area you live in so I can find out the area broadband speed accurately

  • StevieMiles135s Steve Miles (@StevieMiles135s) reported

    @TIMO317 @virginmedia I was fully prepared to terminate my BB with VM there and then. £40 for 69mb/s BB is horrendous. They sorted out an 18 month contract for 100mb/s at £27 month. I should've done it sooner. 🙂

  • absolutelynob15 absolutelynobody (@absolutelynob15) reported

    @virginmedia atrocious service, completely and utterly unreliable for FOUR MONTHS now.

  • Binarytales Jon (@Binarytales) reported

    @virginmedia It's a kick in the teeth to get a letter about price increases that also boats about new speeds I can't get as an existing customer. 😡 But double whammy: I find out I'm paying the equivalent of M350 but only getting M200. Way to screw over loyal customers VM. 😡

  • magicbird813 Emma (@magicbird813) reported

    @virginmedia Would be wonderful if I was able to book it!!. Despite running tests, rebooting, trying to get through to a pointless office hours tech line I am unable to watch the PPV. Yet another problem with the services

  • Gardner1Stephen stephen gardner (@Gardner1Stephen) reported

    @virginmedia the worst broadband around, we pay £120+ a month for the full media package and my 4G from Vodafone has a lot better signal than virgin WIFI...#timetochange

  • MrdashboFx Dashbo (@MrdashboFx) reported

    @virginmedia Hi virgin media thanks for your generic reply. Fix your issues on WiFi

  • StevieMiles135s Steve Miles (@StevieMiles135s) reported

    @virginmedia Hi. after recently contacting your CS after receiving an email to increase my monthly BB only service to £40, i was offered a new 18 month no increase contract for £27 😲 which i jumped at. Just shows, it helps if you complain to VM. I should complain more often. Ste

  • LouisPMertens Louis Mertens (@LouisPMertens) reported

    @lizsilversmith @virginmedia I'm about to write a formal letter of complaint over repeatedly being over-charged £18 a month despite contacting them every single time it happens.
