    @virginmedia please can you tell me the service status on BB12 7DF. My speeds are non existent and your service page on the website is down.

  • Knitswithbeer knitswithbeer🐝 (@Knitswithbeer) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia Same issue if I'm home, which I'm not at the moment. Incredibly frustrating that the only place I have pathetic Wi-Fi access is in my own home.

  • Knitswithbeer knitswithbeer🐝 (@Knitswithbeer) reported from Euxton, England

    @virginmedia And the problem yet again wasn't solved over the phone. Wouldn't admit who cancelled or why. Did admit could identify 'frequency issues' Company full of ignorant eejits

  • Lisa_P117 Lisa Patel (@Lisa_P117) reported from Horwich, England

    @virginmedia epic broadband, crap TiVo ... shocking my box every couple of weeks / less doesn’t work and I have to restart. The package I pay for isn’t value for money and calling up to report issues is painful, 35+ mins I was on for last time!

  • Knitswithbeer knitswithbeer🐝 (@Knitswithbeer) reported from Euxton, England

    So. I've now had 3 @virginmedia techies in 2 days tell me they've resolved my issue. That remains to be seen. It in no way excuses the engineer no-show 🤬🤬🤬

  • Knitswithbeer knitswithbeer🐝 (@Knitswithbeer) reported from Euxton, England

    @virginmedia Sick and tired of this now. Acknowledged there was a problem, sorted it*, asked me to monitor gor a week and if not working they'll then send a man out. *still happening ffs

  • Knitswithbeer knitswithbeer🐝 (@Knitswithbeer) reported from Euxton, England

    @virginmedia The issue has been constant for 2 weeks. Option 2 at the second press is when calling about an account different to the one I'm calling from.

  • Knitswithbeer knitswithbeer🐝 (@Knitswithbeer) reported from Euxton, England

    @virginmedia TBF, I have been trying to get to the solution for over a week. I have other things to do you know...🤨

  • Knitswithbeer knitswithbeer🐝 (@Knitswithbeer) reported from Euxton, England

    @virginmedia There are a couple of threads I've contributed to. I'll try to post the one I looked at this morning and posted the same comment I tweeted. My point is that it shouldn't be a one at a time fix.

  • MetzGeorgia Georgiex (@MetzGeorgia) reported from Manchester, England

    @virginmedia Terrible.

  • radio_caroline Trains (@radio_caroline) reported from Haydock, England

    Virgin media broadband fails again telephone and broadband went off around 2pm still no service not two months goes by without it failing think twice before you sign up

  • bluegail1 Gail Price 💯🏆💙⚽️ CHAMPIONS!🐝🦈 (@bluegail1) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia that was extremely good service by your customer service team. Thank you very much for all your help. Maybe you could give some advice to @o2

  • MsLucyOpenshaw M S L U C Y 💟 (@MsLucyOpenshaw) reported from Bolton, England

    It’s a bloody good job I don’t rely on the internet to make a living because the connection with @virginmedia is shocking and I’d be skint. But I am skint from how much we pay for this shit internet.

  • bigjeast John Eastham (@bigjeast) reported from Wigan, England

    @virginmedia why is your internet always dropping out in the wn3 area. 4 weeks on the bounce now. Latency and speed test are poor too.

  • SteveHaylesALAW Steve 🎗🎗 (@SteveHaylesALAW) reported from Walkden, England

    @virginmedia is there any issues in the M28 area. I have no phone or broadband but your app says service status is ok

  • elle__olivia 𝕰𝖑𝖑𝖊 (@elle__olivia) reported from Manchester, England

  • toewad1 toewad1 (@toewad1) reported from Salford, England

    @openreach splines are in 2/3 months I can get @sky @bt @EE @Talktalk then get rid of @virginmedia forever cant wait, but if it is crap after @virginmedia, who cares thet are still shite 🖕🖕🖕

  • AdamMoran Adam Moran (@AdamMoran) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia Well no, but the front door was opened... ‘now on the day’ team can’t access our account as you have an ‘area 20’ IT issue. You couldn’t make this up. Totally useless. Now on call to a 3rd person in customer relations....

  • BCAREYDOTCOM BRIAN CAREY (@BCAREYDOTCOM) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia Thanks for your reply ..this is just going round the houses... bit just where are the monthly bills that I never receive ....

  • Knitswithbeer knitswithbeer🐝 (@Knitswithbeer) reported from Wigan, England

    @virginmedia No. I don't think it's a broadband issue but it certainly has me foxed. I feel it's an Android version issue.

  • Knitswithbeer knitswithbeer🐝 (@Knitswithbeer) reported from Euxton, England

    @saoirse_22 @SamsungUK @O2 @virginmedia It appears to be a security certificate issue but I can actually access the certificate details on my phone. So, stumped but learned how to do something I didn't know I didn't know... #JoHari

  • davidseale1985 David Seale (@davidseale1985) reported from Manchester, England

    @virginmedia Yeh I got that the WiFi in my home is fine in the sense that there are no black spots. I have extenders and wireless and wired powerpoints so not an issue it’s the actual speeds I’m receiving that’s the issue.

  • Sophgrimmy_ soph✌ (@Sophgrimmy_) reported from Wigan, England

    It’s so frustrating when the internet is down for about the 500th time 😬 #virginmedia

  • Horwichbloke My name is Michael (@Horwichbloke) reported from Horwich, England

    @sinners40 @virginmedia As soon as I saw an engineer messing about with the service box in front of my house, I knew I'd be in trouble. Supposed to be a upgrade to my service. Going well isn't it!

  • redjoker1999 Crypto🃏 (@redjoker1999) reported from Urmston, England

    @virginmedia I'm seriously thinking of holding my direct debit up. it MIGHT stand up in court now. time of service, against time of service PROVIDED. I'm paying for a POOR, POOR service.

  • toewad1 toewad1 (@toewad1) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia Loads of times, it is the router, that is the problem not the speed, 220 meg goe's in but it is how it come's out.

  • toewad1 toewad1 (@toewad1) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia 220down 10up on pc but on xb1 it is 270down but the lag is the problem on Xb1 it is all over the place.

  • toewad1 toewad1 (@toewad1) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia Like I say it's bad every single day for gaming!!!

  • rachheywood Rachel Heywood (@rachheywood) reported from Stockport, England

    @virginmedia I ran the fault test this morning and it picked nothing up. It’s always abysmally slow at weekends but today is worse than ever.

  • toewad1 toewad1 (@toewad1) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia In the last couple of weeks, I have had enough now it's a total waste of time, you won't admit that the router is crap, dont take my word for it check out the forums.

  • toewad1 toewad1 (@toewad1) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia 100s of times total waste of time, set questions & set answers just because they see the speed, they think it is good enough, you charge top rate for crap service especially the router, £500 a year with a £10 cheap router.

  • katiepollit_ Katie Pollit (@katiepollit_) reported from Manchester, England

    Just literally had the best conversation with a guy called Adam from the @virginmedia cancellations team. Called up to cancel my TiVo box and ended up signing up for another package but also having a proper good 20 minute convo with him about life, like I’ve known him years😂

  • raydeluce Ray Mondoosh De'luce (@raydeluce) reported from Bolton, England

    @virginmedia Is there an issue in area 20, no TV or Wi-Fi

  • toewad1 toewad1 (@toewad1) reported from Salford, England

    @Aeroson_ @virginmedia @MarkleeMellor They know the hub3 is crap but they still roll it out, this year Openreach are putting FTTP on my road so Virgin can stick their shite up their ass.., Good luck on the phone.👍

  • toewad1 toewad1 (@toewad1) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia @MarkleeMellor Your team have 1 set of questions and 1 set of answers, looks like another unsatisfied customer for you @virginmedia

  • toewad1 toewad1 (@toewad1) reported from Salford, England

  • ShivDuncan Siobhan Duncan (@ShivDuncan) reported from Manchester, England

    @virginmedia I’m at work. I couldn’t therefore tell you. However, the issue is with your router, it’s not fit for purpose. It constantly reboots because it has a bug

  • MarkleeMellor Mark Lee-mellor (@MarkleeMellor) reported from Salford, England

    @virginmedia I wrote a letter of complaint about the state the road was left outside my house after your works putting new cable in. I’ve had 1 reply advising I would be contacted. I’m still waiting from December 2018. Can you give me any contact details where I will get a reply.

  • Samanthawhelan7 Samantha whelan (@Samanthawhelan7) reported from Middleton, England

    @virginmedia your online TV service is rubbish! Bought a film #BohemianRapsody can’t watch it and for the 2nd day can’t watch catch up TV 😡 20 mins of waiting on the phone is unacceptable!!!! #whatdoipaymybillfor

  • MJG_2012 Martin Gardner (@MJG_2012) reported from Sale, England

    @virginmedia good going promoting Bohemian Rhapsody being available tonight. Loved that film in the cinemas. Well at least that’s what I would be saying if I could sign in and watch it.

  • leeamitch Lee Mitchell (@leeamitch) reported from Westhoughton, England

    Tv problem yesterday, broadband issues yet again today....please @virginmedia let me out of my contract so I can go to a different provider who actually gives me a consistently good service 🙏

  • Terry_Crawford Terry (@Terry_Crawford) reported from Wigan, England

    @virginmedia are a joke!!! I just can’t resolve a simple issue with them! It happens every time... #HappyValentinesDay #ThursdayThoughts

  • Danjones_uk Dan Jones (@Danjones_uk) reported from Sale, England

    @vmbusinesshelp @vmbusiness F006897332 - it would be helpful if your team in Manila listened to customers rather than taking a robotic approach to support. I had to demand that a firmware downgrade take place - even after they admitted that would fix the issue.

  • keiranb1 Keiran (@keiranb1) reported from Boothstown, England

    @bt_uk I thought virgin media’s customer services was bad but my god bt tops the list, 1st advisor calls me a liar. Then the second one put the phone down on me after telling me no manager will take my call! @MartinSLewis
