  • DaveWilliams159 discodave (@DaveWilliams159) reported from Patchway, England

    @virginmedia had the phone disconnected on me 4 times already this morning trying to speak to your complaints team for over 2 hours today!! Shocking service 😡

  • mikelind2 Mike Lind 🦏 (@mikelind2) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia - your pathetic service continues. Please get your customer service team to respond to my complaint URGENTLY. 706480004

  • rimibar ɹɐqᴉɯᴉɹ (@rimibar) reported from Bristol, England

    I ask to speak to a Manager, you put me straight through to a line that says it's now closed, call back tomorrow. That's 32 minutes of my life wasted. Bad service, badly trained call centre staff, not happy @virginmedia

  • rimibar ɹɐqᴉɯᴉɹ (@rimibar) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia right now I'm super frustrated. (1) You sent me a TV box that is really poor quality. (2) I call to change it, telling them I would consiser upgrade. (continued...)

  • LouRipley Louise Ripley (@LouRipley) reported from Kingswood, England

    @virginmedia Never given a reference, sent 2 email complaints have acknowledgement as proof but you guys never even bothered with a reference let alone a proper response

  • LouRipley Louise Ripley (@LouRipley) reported from Kingswood, England

    @virginmedia No point, tried Twitter several times to no avail. Calls = wasted hours of ones life. Sign for letter now sent to complaints as 2 official complaint emails had “no” response. Next stop Ofcom.

  • davina79 Davina S (@davina79) reported from Bradley Stoke, England

    Argh #virginmedia - your WiFi/broadband has been awful for days! Not great when you’re working from home and can’t connect. We pay a fortune for this! #notgoodenough

  • RickLaze Rick Laze (@RickLaze) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia Looking at other complaints on twitter you really need to invest money in your systems and customer service. Absolutely shambolic.

  • RickLaze Rick Laze (@RickLaze) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia I can receive the booster free of charge your colleague confirmed this before putting me on hold and hanging up on his return. Your app is useless so when I test the internet connection on your app it says my signal is fine in one of my rooms when that's not the case.

  • RickLaze Rick Laze (@RickLaze) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia I can dm you my account details and you can send the booster out. WTH am I paying £100 a month for such mediocre service. It's not the first time one of your agents has hung up either.

  • RickLaze Rick Laze (@RickLaze) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia P.s please don't say do it via the app because your app states the signal is fine in the room in question when that's not the case.

  • RickLaze Rick Laze (@RickLaze) reported from Bristol, England

    @AliReg @virginmedia They're terrible they hung up on me after an hour of waiting and bring transfers!! Looking on Twitter it seems to be normal practice for them 😡

  • RickLaze Rick Laze (@RickLaze) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia are USELESS. Why do your agents always hang up on your customers this isn't the first time it's happened!!!! Please DM and arrange a call back ASAP

  • SNewport01 Shaun (@SNewport01) reported from Kingswood, England

    @virginmedia The Internet was down and I ran 4 diagnostics and each one told me my cable wasn't plugged in to my hub, after being on hold and ringing back I was instantly told by the automated service that my postcode had problems. Its fixed now

  • ScottTobin3 Scott Tobin (@ScottTobin3) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia there is a problem with sky sports red button

  • LouRipley Louise Ripley (@LouRipley) reported from Kingswood, England

    @virginmedia Would love to call but thanks to you guys I don’t have a phone!!!!!!! & holding for 30 mins on a mobile is unacceptable. Here’s an idea, get your team to call me. It’s called customer service. Something Virgin don’t know if.

  • burdmiester Paul Burdon (@burdmiester) reported from Kingswood, England

    Can’t stream jack shit on @virginmedia waste of time fails every Twenty minutes #prepareexittoalternative

  • PayneTito Tito Payne (@PayneTito) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia what’s going on with the service In the BS3 postcode area. I have no internet!!!

  • suzyqc7 Suzy Evans (@suzyqc7) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia we've got ongoing issues with tv and broadband in BS7. Please sort it out. Loosing count of how many times this has happened over the last few months.

  • Georgebaker6969 George Baker (@Georgebaker6969) reported from Thornbury, England

    @james90147996 @JonBake45257780 Funny how they call themselves virgin yet they only ever seem to **** people over. 🤔 @virginmedia

  • LouRipley Louise Ripley (@LouRipley) reported from Kingswood, England

    @virginmedia Complaint should have been obvious from ALL the comms I’ve sent. Contracted TV, phone, unlimited BB £79/mth. Can’t get phone line (waiting 8 months) but £105 DDs taken each month. Truly appalling

  • charleebliss_ CHARLEE BLISS ® (@charleebliss_) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia please can you help me with my order!! Tried to ring your offices but rude and useless

  • hisotalus Hannimal 🇪🇺🇬🇧🏳️‍🌈 (@hisotalus) reported from Bristol, England

    @Julie_B92 Especially when particularly young people might not be able to access internet for this kind of stuff on any other device than their phones. It’s so disappointing @virginmedia doesn’t reply to these tweets. I hope it’s an honest oversight and they’ll fix this.

  • hisotalus Hannimal 🇪🇺🇬🇧🏳️‍🌈 (@hisotalus) reported from Bristol, England

    On top of this since I changed to @virginmedia last week, they have sent me a marketing text message almost every day (Sunday is the only exception). I can’t find how to opt out of these and not sure blocking my network provider’s number is a wise idea. Never have I this quickly

  • LouRipley Louise Ripley (@LouRipley) reported from Kingswood, England

    @virginmedia stopped our DD because you take excess ££ from our a/c. Called lots of times, written 2 complaints, been promised it’ll be sorted but empty promises AGAIN absolutely by far worse customer service I’ve ever experienced

  • chrisandobe Chris (@chrisandobe) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia please get the mobile signal better in fishponds Bristol

  • CharHodkin Charlotte Hodkin (@CharHodkin) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia worst customer service I have ever experienced geeeez just what you want on a Saturday....terrible team...don’t do it guys 😂 #BransonHaveAWord

  • LouRipley Louise Ripley (@LouRipley) reported from Kingswood, England

    @virginmedia absolute disgrace. Advise via Twitter to make complaint, logged 2-no response, called lots no joy, promises result in nothing. Absolute shambles. STAY AWAY peeps!! Sky a dream in comparison

  • shaner1989 Shane Richardson (@shaner1989) reported from Bristol, England

    @vmbusinesshelp @virginmedia @vmbusiness Hi, I think the issue is sorted now. @virginmedia has helped. Shame the call centre is awful though.

  • shaner1989 Shane Richardson (@shaner1989) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia your support team are useless. 3 hours on calls today. I cannot get my time back that your operatives have wasted by hanging up or disconnecting 3 time.

  • chefwonderwebb nick webb (@chefwonderwebb) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia why has it taken 32 mins on hold to cancel my subscription! I’m still waiting to talk to the person I spoke to 15mjns ago! Terrible service

  • JimEBallantyne James E Ballantyne (@JimEBallantyne) reported from Bristol, England

    After another 30 mins on hold I’ve given up for today as you’re impacting my evening @Virgin @virginmedia @richardbranson Crap service 👎🏻 you never know who might be a returning customer in the future and this is such a poor experience #BadService #CancellingDueToPriceHike

  • mattyribbo Matt Ribbins (@mattyribbo) reported from Filton, England

    @virginmedia Wired. The issue isn't with my side of the network. It appears to be on the virgin side based on the router logs.

  • sbcallen Bruce Allen (@sbcallen) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia customers with difficult problems seem to be parked in telephone que until they go away. Really trying to work to Virgin. Still waiting 55 minutes bet they will just disconnect me!

  • sbcallen Bruce Allen (@sbcallen) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia after nearly a year of repeatedly dropped internet service finally asked them to turn off their Wi-fi kit so can use my own. Basic connection fails, again, and nothing left for support desk to blame - challenge that if it’s not on the script then no help

  • sbcallen Bruce Allen (@sbcallen) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia long wait times 40+ minutes and no fix just another que and a recorded message that will be charged by ‘Virgin Gadget Rescue Team’!. Virgin sets new standards in Customer Service.

  • mikelind2 Mike Lind 🦏 (@mikelind2) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia sadly having to post again. Home broadband down again. Your service is so unreliable it is useless. U have failed to provide a reliable broadband service and remain in breach of contract.

  • KenTrowbridge3 Ken Trowbridge (@KenTrowbridge3) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia Can we DM this issue please or give me a contact number where I can actually speak to someone without the intensely annoying waiting times. Thanks in advance and anticipation! Ken

  • sbcallen Bruce Allen (@sbcallen) reported from Bristol, England

    Virgin media service - connection goes down with 24 hours & no help from technical services, just reading from a script & no escalation. Giving up after a year of unacceptable service. Lovely and polite on social media, impossible once a customer #virginmedia

  • RebekahMorriss 🌈Rebekah Rhian🦄 (@RebekahMorriss) reported from Bristol, England

    @gavindp2012 @virginmedia It's really annoying because my cctv is ran by the WiFi and it needs resetting all the time it's down

  • DigitalJonathan Jonathan Phillips, Esq. (@DigitalJonathan) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia down again... it’s been awful all day. Up and down. You really are a terrible provider.

  • irfonw Irfon Watkins (@irfonw) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia been waiting in call queue for 20 mins to speak to someone. No indication of where I am in queue. Just shit music indicitave of a shit customer service

  • LeeRendall Lee Rendall (@LeeRendall) reported from Bristol, England

    @charllou1 @virginmedia Genuine, was kept on hold 50 mins couple weeks back then when the operator came on told us there was an issue and i had to call back 😳 was FUMING!

  • RickLaze Rick Laze (@RickLaze) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia's customer services is the WORST

  • amybeardy Amy Beardmore (@amybeardy) reported from Winterbourne, England

    @amandavin @virginmedia I need fibre though because of stupid children streaming games and all sorts of nonsense. Anything other than virgin also comes with a £50 BT phone line installation. They’ve got me over a barrel

  • TimWorth1 τ!m ω0ɍ†ɧ (@TimWorth1) reported from Bristol, England

    @granuailemalia @SkyUK Probably the same issue @virginmedia had a while ago.

  • 1210sounds Rich Hemming (@1210sounds) reported from Bristol, England

    @alone_music @virginmedia Jesus that’s bad, thought it could be done online the activation. I moved house and they said 20£ to move. What they didn’t say was that they renewed the contract and double billed me as they take one month in advance as a new contract. Complained to @virginmedia nothing done

  • sbcallen Bruce Allen (@sbcallen) reported from Bristol, England

    @virginmedia Internet connection has been down, again, all day. BristolBS8. Automated reporting and another 23 minutes waiting for technical support

  • MattEwing7 Matt Ewing (@MattEwing7) reported from Bristol, England

    @Virgin @virginmedia @richardbranson Your customer service is so painful and appalling. 2 rings and the sales team answer, 20 minute transfer to Loyalty team, gave up when needing to be transferred to Contract Services team. FFS I only wanted to remain a customer!!!

  • jason_side Jason side (@jason_side) reported from Kingswood, England

    @virginmedia Box is connected to TV via HDMI cable I've tried different cables and hdmi ports on TV to eliminate those as issues. Doesn't happen with on-demand programs.
