  • mo4g_777 mo4g (@mo4g_777) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia maybe if virgin didn’t spend shedloads of money on crap adverts and looked after your customers better it would mean something

  • djchrisr Chris Roberts (@djchrisr) reported from Dudley, England

    @virginmedia not long after that because I immediately received a high bill but was told it takes 30 days to set up, so I accepted that. I've messaged & emailed about all this before & gave up because of poor or non-response. It's frustrating. I'm very busy and don't have time to keep chasing

  • djchrisr Chris Roberts (@djchrisr) reported from Dudley, England

    @virginmedia I called the mobile team at the start of the year to put a £5 cap on my mobile contract which my daughter uses but have now received a bill for £29 and discovered the cap was never put on. CS on the phone insisted I've never called about this but I know for a fact I did....

  • RuthOlive1968 Roggy (@RuthOlive1968) reported from Solihull, England

    @virginmedia Mine down today and it's a crucial time for my children's uni work with dead lines . Not a happy customer.

  • ChapmanGaynor Gaynor Chapman (@ChapmanGaynor) reported from West Bromwich, England

    @virginmedia how long is this network going to be down. I can’t make calls on my mobile and I have no internet connection and haven’t had any since about 1pm , not happy

  • baggies_i Adam (@baggies_i) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia It's not some 😂🙈 it's everyone mate noticed my Google pixel just went to H+ from 4G so appears you've switched everyone to 3G while fixing the issue. #virginmobile

  • ADaveWard David Ward (@ADaveWard) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @virginmedia My home WIFI is always quicker than when on mobile data. My wife’s @VodafoneUK network always receives first and quicker than your network.

  • ADaveWard David Ward (@ADaveWard) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @virginmedia Checked with the team. New SIM won’t help with Push Notifications.

  • JWilliams_94 Jamie (@JWilliams_94) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Nothing about Wi-Fi on the service page but by looking at the other 1000s of tweets from people with the same exact issue I’m clearly not going to get a solution anytime soon

  • ADaveWard David Ward (@ADaveWard) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @virginmedia SMS sent. If you think a replacement SIM will solve the issue then yes please do send one. Thank you

  • kittykaz13 Caroline James (@kittykaz13) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia No known issues, there was on 28/04, same thing signal cutting out, supposedly fixed 29/04, but since then there were brief signal losses a couple times a day every day, another known issue raised 06/05 fixed the same day, yesterday had no problems, but today issue is worse

  • apt1955 Tony T (@apt1955) reported from Wythall, England

    @virginmedia is a case of complete incompetence by your engineers. Complaint reference is COM103375838. Have had no contact. What you can do is find out why a manager authorised a live cable being cut and get the engineers back to reinstate my service.

  • apt1955 Tony T (@apt1955) reported from Wythall, England

    @virginmedia I have reported it at about 11.45 this morning. Wasn't given a fault reference, told a ticket had been raised and I would get a message to my mobile from field support engineers but it might be days before anything can be done. Heard nothing yet. Also raised a complaint as this..

  • apt1955 Tony T (@apt1955) reported from Wythall, England

    @Bluhawk1875 @vmbusiness Hope not! Maddening thing is they were working next door to tidy up the awful cabling job they'd done when they replaced our cable, the guy rang his boss about what to do with the badly installed cable and was just told to cut it! No check to see if it was live!!!

  • apt1955 Tony T (@apt1955) reported from Wythall, England

    @virginmedia Unbelievably poor service! My broadband and phone line cut off by your contractors without so much as a basic check that the cable was providing service. Now got to wait days for service to be restored.

  • kittykaz13 Caroline James (@kittykaz13) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Thank you, yes, I just called them after it happened again! They are sending a technician out to see if the area fault from last Sunday has caused an issue on my line, as this issue only started then, a tech is coming out on Tuesday

  • Wrightgal80 Kate Wright ◣ ◢ (@Wrightgal80) reported from Birmingham, England

    @danhounslow @virginmedia They are bull shit! I sit next to the router and sometimes have to take my phone off WiFi so things load.

  • EgglestonMathew Mat 🏳️‍🌈 (@EgglestonMathew) reported from Birmingham, England

    Feel sorry for the poor bloke at Virgin Media that’s answered the phone to Matthew

  • BenAubury5 BA (@BenAubury5) reported from Tamworth District, England

    What a joke @virginmedia are. On the phone for 1hr 29mins just to cancel a phone contract. I ask them for an email address to make a complaint and they say they don't have one 🤣🤣 I will never be using this company again

  • Sammykins9486 Samantha (@Sammykins9486) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia It is a media issue, I sent off the documents over a month ago confirming new account holder , no reply or confirmation this has been actioned at all. Weeks on end trying to sort one issue that should be easy is unacceptable

  • JWilliams_94 Jamie (@JWilliams_94) reported from Birmingham, England

    @idlecreative @virginmedia They probably won’t tell you much but it’s definitely a regional problem me and other I know are suffering the same problem with all the other people putting it too Twitter

  • tomstrumreed tom reed (@tomstrumreed) reported from West Bromwich, England

    @virginmedia There's nothing there relating to broadband issues.

  • AmbitiousMusic AMBITIOUS 🎶🎸🔊 (@AmbitiousMusic) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Your service has been shit for years. Need a change

  • AmbitiousMusic AMBITIOUS 🎶🎸🔊 (@AmbitiousMusic) reported from Birmingham, England

    Ok so the @EE connection on my phone is far superior then my home @virginmedia WiFi. May switch. #virgin is crap!! 🖕🏽

  • Wolvesblogger Nathan Lloyd (@Wolvesblogger) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @virginmedia Intermittent problem. It’s back on & then it’s gone again. Very frustrating.

  • Wolvesblogger Nathan Lloyd (@Wolvesblogger) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @virginmedia Cheers for the top. Yes, tv & broadband services issues with an estimated fix time of 23:55. I may have to crack open the Scrabble & the candles. Now I know how people felt in the black outs during the war!

  • wthirskgaskill W. J. Thirsk-Gaskill (@wthirskgaskill) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Please concentrate on getting up the noses of broadband customers, and stop running shit trains, and suing the NHS for money that was never yours in the first place.

  • Sammykins9486 Samantha (@Sammykins9486) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia It’s media. I have sent off the details to change account holder name and heard nothing back it has been over 2 weeks, can’t get anywhere when i contact your call centre. I need a change to our services and need support with this

  • Mitz__P Mitesh Parmar (@Mitz__P) reported from Solihull, England

    @virginmedia do you have broadband issues in #Solihull as the service appears to have gone down. According to your service status page tho there aren't any issues 🤔 I beg to differ!

  • terrysankey Terry Sankey (@terrysankey) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @SimonADouglas @virginmedia We have the occasional internet problem but since the last announced 'update' the hub seems to be resetting itself. Doesn't matter to the 'wired' machines but obviously disconnects the WiFi! Irritating as the restart times are long and inputting the names/password is a pain 🙄

  • ArcanumDesign Bill Bishop (@ArcanumDesign) reported from Halesowen, England

    @virginmedia Tom, I already have, and they refused to match the same cost when the introductory offer finishes. You are still over charging me £125 p.a. for being an existing customer. Please have a UK customer manager contact me

  • Plumberguyuk Mike Hamer (@Plumberguyuk) reported from Birmingham, England

    Virgin Media should be reported to the advertising standards, for lies, what a total load of crap, try getting your customer service telling the truth for a start .

  • DickyDodd Dicky Dodd (@DickyDodd) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @virginmedia You seem to find it very easy to let go a loyal customer of 23 years. You won't be that sad.

  • DickyDodd Dicky Dodd (@DickyDodd) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    Now holding for 20 minutes @virginmedia Customer retention department obviously trying a different tactic to keep me as a customer I've been with this company since 1997 and this how I have to be treated.

  • DickyDodd Dicky Dodd (@DickyDodd) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    So I've been on hold to @virginmedia Customer retentions for 17 minutes... Unreal.

  • GTAssociates GTAssociates (@GTAssociates) reported from Redditch, England

    @virginmedia 8 conversations to cancel our service and cxl confirmed by virgin. Cancellation first made on 28 Feb. Just received a bill and you have billed for April and May. What a shambles you are! Get your act together now! I have paid final balance & no more is due!

  • SammyLouisee_ sammy♥ (@SammyLouisee_) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    So after having problems with @virginmedia mobile decided to join @ThreeUK let’s hope this is a better network 🙌🏻

  • DarranAttwell Darran Attwell (@DarranAttwell) reported from Dudley, England

    @virginmedia can someone help me with a bill... I’ve been charged twice for the same bill both times overcharged. And I’m struggling over the phone.. can someone please DM me please

  • simonpunch Simon Pugh (@simonpunch) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @virginmedia just had the call ended by your overseas call centre not the greatest service in the world!!

  • GTAssociates GTAssociates (@GTAssociates) reported from Redditch, England

    @virginmedia Media Services,. We have always passed security and never had this issue before!

  • Plumberguyuk Mike Hamer (@Plumberguyuk) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Just had a look at what you've sent, you lot are a real joke, you screw up and then push customer to do all the work and hope they give up, I surggest you find another job far as possible form customers,

  • Plumberguyuk Mike Hamer (@Plumberguyuk) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia I don't think much will happen given virgin's track record but on the plus side you've given lots of material for my delegates on next Saturdays Customer Service module.

  • Plumberguyuk Mike Hamer (@Plumberguyuk) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia one good thing is I can demonstate in my customer training sessions how not to treat customers, thank you for the material Virgin Braodband

  • WestonKerri Kerri (@WestonKerri) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia absolute joke !! worst customer service provided ! #whybother

  • admcdermott Adam McDermott (@admcdermott) reported from Dorridge, England

    @virginmedia 6 week a ago we lost all service, finally got an appt for yesterday to have cable dug up and reconnected. Engineer rang twice to check contractors had done street work - no. Assured by CS it would be done, it wasn't. Now another 2 weeks! You just don't care!

  • xpjxuk Paul Jenkins (@xpjxuk) reported from Walsall Wood, England

    @virginmedia been hounded with call for 2 weeks finally answer to be offered disgusting customer service and when I ask about the offer on the Martin Lewis website told can’t have it please call me or I will be leaving and going to sky

  • unit_1974 🐺Wolfish (@unit_1974) reported from Birmingham, England

    @CapnKink @virginmedia They don’t even respond when you complain. I haven’t got the patience to keep phoning to get a temporary fix. Just gotta decide which service to switch to and they’re gone.

  • unit_1974 🐺Wolfish (@unit_1974) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Broadband issues since May 2018. Multiple calls to customer service with no permanent fix. Last time I called I was asked the same questions repeatedly then cut off. Want a new hub that works and a bill review as it’s gone from £65 to £79 since Sept 2018!

  • unit_1974 🐺Wolfish (@unit_1974) reported from Birmingham, England

    Made a complaint to @virginmedia 10 days ago via their online service with a 7 day anticipated response time and yet have heard nothing since the acknowledgement of my complaint. This basically sums up my experience over the past year of ineffective response to our issues.

  • jenkin99 jen (@jenkin99) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Ive called you customer service department to be hung up on temwicw, i have sent an email to yourselfs and via resolver had no response. I have a health and safety issue i want resolving

  • KaiPhillipsYT Kai (@KaiPhillipsYT) reported

    just yesterday i was singing @virginmedia praises, my 5GB of free data has disappeared i guess it was literally just sunday. bullshit what a terrible company, always something with these guys 😂

  • dy0b1 Gregor 📷 (@dy0b1) reported

    @Frankline141 @j0toro @virginmedia @ThreeUK @ThreeUKSupport Absolutely shocking way for them to treat their consumers.

  • AJ_Rashid Aqib Javed Rashid (@AJ_Rashid) reported

    @virginmedia I have tried the troubleshooting. I’ve even got a Powerline Adapter and the signal is rubbish. It doesn’t make sense why the signal should be so poor when I pay so much for the Wi-fi service. I don’t have a wired connection for anything. Everything is through Wi-fi.

  • 1972CW1972 catherine (@1972CW1972) reported from Garston, England

    @virginmedia seriously listening to stupid music for 12 minutes, gets thru, told to hold and then cut off 😫

  • desertlens desertmonk (@desertlens) reported

    @virginmedia Well we are down again I’m on my iPhone rang the 150 number they did the auto test now sending a signal problem is this has now been dine 3 times since last week and unable to speak to anyone!!

  • cssjazzhands Sam George (@cssjazzhands) reported

    @virginmedia Hi AMB, I'm sorry to say that I have and have yet to see it report a fault with the service. I've also regularly used the service test provided from logging in - to similar results even during times when our service drops completely. I'm sure you can understand my frustration.

  • Rod1musPr1meFan Curtis Frost (@Rod1musPr1meFan) reported

    @virginmedia When I spoke to virgin media Saturday they said it was an intermitting signal

  • parkinson_0 Laura Parkinson (@parkinson_0) reported

    @virginmedia My dad has been on the phone and contacted you so they are going to send someone out when they can, thanks for your help
