Virgin Media Issues Reports Near Brighton, England

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in Brighton and nearby locations:
  • JMOC89 James Crouch (@JMOC89) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia I haven't first time for that as its hard for me to find the time to sit in hold for an hour to get to anyone. I sent another complaint through your service and have the conf. Maybe this time I will actually get the call instead of expecting to waste more of my time

  • JMOC89 James Crouch (@JMOC89) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia They found nothing and hung up on me. I don't think my opinion of a company has ever been changed so much as you guys have over the last few months. Submitted another complaint as I have to work to pay for your awful service

  • JMOC89 James Crouch (@JMOC89) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia still no update on my complaint or speed changes 2 months of no delivery and over a month no reply. Let's see how long I sit on hold today!!

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia Your problems in my area are consistent. Down again this eve and I’m seriously considering just not paying you. I only get service some of the time so I’ll only pay you some of the time. You don’t know how lucky you are to provide bt sport. Only reason I’m hanging on 😤

  • Keith_Hall Keith Hall (@Keith_Hall) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    Dear @virginmedia - after 75 minutes on hold, I had to hang up. Happy to sign that new contract with you however if you want to call me back....

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @McGiff @virginmedia OMG they are the worst! We had no service for a week last month 😤

  • joesuxx joe🍑 (@joesuxx) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    Trying to cancel my @virginmedia and the guy on the phone is driving rhe hardest sale and its making me so uncomfortable 👏you👏are👏doing👏the👏opposite👏of👏customer👏retention👏

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @Fatboypops @virginmedia Mum and dad had problems with them too! Sky are by far the best just as shame they never look after existing customers which is why we left x

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    Yet more problems @virginmedia had 3 weeks of good service before going tits up again. Oh and I got a full bill when I was due compensation for and I had to ring up and rectify. You really are a crappy company

  • Slater1Jess Jess Slater (@Slater1Jess) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia very disappointed at the terrible service myself and my mother received recently #poor #rude #virginmedia

  • mel_shad 💀☠Mel Shad ☠💀 (@mel_shad) reported from Shoreham-by-Sea, England

    @leylatov @virginmedia Honestly this is pretty standard. As you are in the same area, you could even start out with this 'intermittent untraceable local fault' and have no service too! As far as I can tell, they are so big, they don't care about individual customers or holding onto their custom.

  • mel_shad 💀☠Mel Shad ☠💀 (@mel_shad) reported from Shoreham-by-Sea, England

    @leylatov @NadsShad @virginmedia The service really is very poor. I would definitely think twice if I were you. It's like it doesn't matter that we can't work etc Nobody calls you back and there us never a swift resolution. I'm so fed up today I could cry!

  • mel_shad 💀☠Mel Shad ☠💀 (@mel_shad) reported from Shoreham-by-Sea, England

    @virginmedia @NadsShad 1) you didn't notify customers that there were intermittent problems 2) your customer service line operative was very unconcerned about it when we called 3) we are home workers and need dependable services 4) yours are not dependable and nobody who works for you seems to care!

  • khawes Kate Hawes (@khawes) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    @JessicaOOTC @virginmedia Used to have @virginmedia internet here in Brighton but it was consistently terrible. Far fewer problems with Sky.

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @kellysharman19 @virginmedia If it’s not sorted today, I’m out. They can stuff their contract and any fees they’d expect me to pay!! It’s just a shame that @SkyUK are quite expensive for the stuff we want and I find they never look after existing customers

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    Right @virginmedia it’s Friday! I expect to fully be back up and running by this afternoon as promised numerous times. If not you get someone to my house to sort it this weekend, no more crap promises down the phone! #majorlyfedupnow

  • steveleppard stephen leppard (@steveleppard) reported from Shoreham-by-Sea, England

    When you’re on the phone to @virginmedia for 10 minutes before someone answers, then because you’re leaving they stick you on hold for another half hour (and counting) so they don’t have to deal with it. #complaint #fedup #ihavethingstodo

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @GeorgiaCorke @virginmedia Exactly why we left @SkyUK Shane as their service is really good. Virgin is cheaper and good packages but the service can be so up and down. They won’t send an engineer because it’s a fault in area not my equipment but a week to fix is an absolute travesty of a service!

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia It’s an ongoing issue, we’re 5 days in of no service. Just a joke now 😂. @SkyUK all you had to do was keep prices reasonable and not lose loads of football to bt and we’d be right back with you!!

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    You’ve really done it now @virginmedia, another day no service and gra can’t watch the Chelsea game 😤

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia A few hours I understand but 4 days and counting is not on. No one seems to be able to give a reliable account of what the actual problem is and when it will be sorted. Just fobbed off constantly. You’ve probably been the most helpful so far.

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia I just want someone out to check my equipment and sort it. No one else I know nearby who has virgin are having half as many issues as we are. You’ve got my money now come and sort my problem out. It’s been 4 days!

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia Done all of this, nothing works, the check my status is useless as it says there’s no broadband issues but when I ring up I’m told there is.

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia It’s broadband and tv. All I can do is watch recorded shows. Can’t even get bbc itv etc. All I’m told is there’s a complex problem in the area but other people I know seem to have problems with either the tv or internet and nowhere as bad as ours. Extremely frustrating

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    Just realised my direct debit goes out today. But your department that deals with taking payments hasn’t been down for the last 4 days. Funny that 😬 @virginmedia

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    I feel like all I do is ring big companies up constantly to be fobbed off about their terrible service & amounts of money they’re taking off me for that service. It’s a joke. @virginmedia and @SSE Im talking about you.Joke both of you 😡. #pissedoff #anotherdaywithnotvorinternet

  • clairewoods93 Claire Lock (@clairewoods93) reported from Worthing, England

    Well done @virginmedia, everything down again and I’m told 24-48 hours until it’s fixed. On the opening weekend of the new premier league season. Magic 🙄😤

  • Genji_bow Leon Valentine (@Genji_bow) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    @virginmedia I’m loosing connection and having issues ie dns issues....I have restarted all of my equipment. Isn’t there preventative actions you can do to stop ddos issues to other customers

  • Mamafish_TW Patricia 💜 (@Mamafish_TW) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia Unfortunately the first member of staff disconnected our call then the second member was fairly rude so I think it’s time for me to move on and get better service and something I can afford, I’ve been trying for the past year to get a better deal but never got more than this.

  • Mamafish_TW Patricia 💜 (@Mamafish_TW) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia absolutely shocking that as a customer since 2012 out of contract since 2014 decided to tackle the £130+ a month bill only to be told we can knock off £10 but increase your broadband is the only offer you can make to keep me with you. Time to move on

  • zimoza90 Tony Woodley (@zimoza90) reported from Burgess Hill, England

    @virginmedia No. No response to the online chat or text. Literally nothing, zero, silence. Call volume is no excuse for over 24hrs of no response from a paid for service provider. #CustomerService

  • pwvoiceovers Patrick Woodward (@pwvoiceovers) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia bb seems to be back now! Hopefully just a glitch. Service status website still down tho. Says 'oops, something's wrong'

  • peel_acres Mark (@peel_acres) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    @virginmedia Yeah, it's a known issue and you are working on it but Cricket World Cup Final, British Grand Prix, Wimbledon Men's Singles Final, Tour de France! Aaaargh!

  • dan_garrett1 Dan Garrett (@dan_garrett1) reported from Hove, England

    266 excruciating minutes of my life (nine phone calls!) I will never get back trying to get a complaint response out of @virginmedia A customer of over 20 years treated terribly. Let’s hope @bt_uk are better. #misselling #poorcustomerservice @lutzschuler @libertyglobal @ofcom

  • RelentlesssTV ЯTV (@RelentlesssTV) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    @rachhgoeslive @virginmedia That's a shame :( & yh i have sams issues. I wanna talk to someone else to lol

  • dan_garrett1 Dan Garrett (@dan_garrett1) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia @MoneyTelegraph Furious right now. 12 different failings by virgin media. Call centre refusal to escalate my complaint. Hung up on twice. No human compassion. Just keep quoting from their script. Completely unacceptable. #poorcustomerservice

  • davmcdngh David McDonagh (@davmcdngh) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia I appreciate your response but I did get through to an agent and the response I got was quite frankly appalling. The only thing that link says is there is a problem with using the app. This is a problem that has now been going on for weeks

  • Mick1082 Mike smith (@Mick1082) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    @virginmedia Ordering my phones was a absolute credit to your company gave excellent customer service

  • Mick1082 Mike smith (@Mick1082) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    @virginmedia hi I’ve got to say I’m extremely disappointed by your customer service with upgrading my phone I called to upgrade on Monday and everything got though to including credit checks and the reply was sorry we’ve got to do back off checks and I’ve still heard nothing back

  • mel_shad 💀☠Mel Shad ☠💀 (@mel_shad) reported from Shoreham-by-Sea, England

    @tanyabyrne @virginmedia Exactly this. I completely accept that emergency work cannot be helped and has to be done as soon as required, but scheduled improvement work should be different. It's not okay to just cut people off without notice and then make out it's an outage.

  • mel_shad 💀☠Mel Shad ☠💀 (@mel_shad) reported from Shoreham-by-Sea, England

    @virginmedia Called customer service line & the message says virgin is doing improvement works in my area. I accept that if its emergency works there is nothing that can be done. The reason I am cross is if you have scheduled improvement work to do, you should tell people about it before!

  • Mick1082 Mike smith (@Mick1082) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    @virginmedia hi guys what’s going on with the tv phone and broadband service in the Bn2 area of Brighton mines all down and not working at all

  • steveleppard stephen leppard (@steveleppard) reported from Shoreham-by-Sea, England

    @virginmedia are doing improvements in the area so my tv and broadband are down all day. Nice to be told. Working from home and can’t do a thing now. Wasted day. #Complaint

  • MissClarePear Clare Pear (@MissClarePear) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia I know about that but feel the issues are always happening and i just want to watch tv without having to reboot and check statue all the time. Just feel it's a bad service when I'm paying for full package with you. Thank you for looking into this for me. 😁

  • MissClarePear Clare Pear (@MissClarePear) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia Area 20 worthing problems all the time.

  • Less_worry More time Less worry (@Less_worry) reported from Worthing, England

    It’s so disappointing that #Loyalty counts for nothing! You only get a good deal if you are a new customer! Thanks @virginmedia for nothing!

  • AshJHow91 Ashley Howard (@AshJHow91) reported from Worthing, England

    @virginmedia hurry up. No matter how many times you play the same song, over and over again. I Ashley will not hang up!

  • Furzeboy Mark Chambers (@Furzeboy) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia and you would get back to me (VM) After a couple of months I spoke to a young man in customer service who said it was something you offered and as I had issues with my landline he would get someone to call me about it ASAP this could take 72hrs &still waiting

  • Furzeboy Mark Chambers (@Furzeboy) reported from Hove, England

    @virginmedia phoned you 3 weeks ago about a phone line on my hub, was told I’d get a call back within 72hrs and still waiting. Poor customer service.

  • AnotherRunHQ Another Runner (@AnotherRunHQ) reported from Brighton and Hove, England

    Have to credit @virginmedia this morning. Two days of problems with my router resolved this morning. No long waits. Just a quick on-site service. Thank you.

  • superblink1 MajorMajor (@superblink1) reported

    @virginmedia My bill which was £35 per month increased to £50, then £60+ and finally £70+ without notice, no extra service added I had to cancel, then I was charged to cancel the TV, Phone and Internet separately on top. Can't pay won't pay.

  • Desmocorsenet Desmocorse (@Desmocorsenet) reported

    @virginmedia I was promised a month refund last time which never appeared and now it's off again. Fed up I cannot work from home as I'm supposed to be able to. Shocking service and time for a change. I've been here since Nynex and it's never been this bad

  • Kolvencia 🍂Flo 🐊🐄🍂 (@Kolvencia) reported
