    @virginmedia So what happens now or am I being stupid or have you just left me in limbo like the phone call !!!

  • licklemouse Stuart Cockerill (@licklemouse) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia I’ve just wasted a whole hour sat on the phone with someone who had less than an a basic understanding of English what a waste of time only to be sent a new TiVo box who knows of this will work as she spent more time speaking to her work mates awful experience 😡

  • gmb_sarahjames Sarah James (@gmb_sarahjames) reported from West Bromwich, England

    Really disappointed with @virginmedia call centre staff this evening, asking 10 times in the space of 20 minutes to speak to a supervisor to resolve an issue is not good enough

  • davebytheway Dave Bytheway (@davebytheway) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @wolves_ink @virginmedia @Newey_7 @SkyHelpTeam @CoopEnergy have well and truly let us down, over charged, no communication and still waiting for a call back from last week! They are the worst I’ve encountered for this

  • davebytheway Dave Bytheway (@davebytheway) reported from Wolverhampton, England

    @wolves_ink @virginmedia @Newey_7 Our @SkyHelpTeam broadband hasn’t worked since installation despite calls and an attempted booster fix. Know how you feel mate

  • kittykatrollins Helen Rollins (@kittykatrollins) reported from Birmingham, England

    Poor customer service from @virginmedia this morning. Phoned to discuss fraudulent callers to my landline. First advise was to call #TPS, I carefully explained that I was already registered with them. He then said, let me give you a number. I diligently wrote it down. Who’s that

  • littleanfield15 philwebster (@littleanfield15) reported from Tamworth District, England

  • nigeyp Nigel P Harris (@nigeyp) reported from Birmingham, England

    Sick of the shit customer service in the uk. 3 calls to @virginmedia trying to get them to repay a credit & after being put on hold for 10mins they hang up each time. #Useless #virginmedia

  • A_J_92 Ash❗️ (@A_J_92) reported from Birmingham, England

    So I left @virginmedia over 18 months ago as they tried to rip off a loyal customer and had no customer service experience or knowledge at all. I thought I'd give them another chance just by grabbing a sim only deal as the offer was attracting. say no more, Sim cancelled!

  • A_J_92 Ash❗️ (@A_J_92) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia do you have an email address I can email on to cancel please I've tried phoning and its a joke!

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

    @virginmedia Thanks you for this. I’m at work 12hrs today so won’t be calling. Very disappointed over the past 2yrs of issues. I’ve called customer services multiple times and made two complaints previously. Still not resolved so will be switching.

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

    As well as the hub randomly disconnecting from various home control devices; Alexa, Sonos, Dyson… the @virginmedia TiVo Box now seems incapable of playing BBC iPlayer! This service, despite having the most up to date equipment and checking every setting & connection is rubbish.

  • A_J_92 Ash❗️ (@A_J_92) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia I want to order the sim only which is on offer which ends tonight. I am trying to bring my no. Across from another network i have the PAC I've put this in the form when ordering online but getting an error message

  • lucylegs1506 Lucy Coxon (@lucylegs1506) reported from Wednesfield, England

    @virginmedia not a happy customer at all. My phoneis not working at all, not turning on. I pay insurance thru virgin. I called them 2day to see if it could be repaired, they said no and Ive gotta pay £80 excess for a replacement. It doesnt state this in my contract.

  • field133 daniel (@field133) reported from Dudley, England

    @virginmedia absolute joke virgin broadband nearly 6 weeks of intermittent issues with no broadband and again yesterday and today when you call no one answers just holding this needs to be addressed

  • CrackingLeaders Carol Coombes O.B.E (@CrackingLeaders) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Bedroom installation contracted weeks ago for ill person. Didnt happen. Scant, apathetic apology, told new date might now be few weeks. Was held up collection from hosp awaiting techs that never came. We've no clue what's happening when, nor the effort to keep trying for it.

  • Tedtalks13 Teds (@Tedtalks13) reported from Aldridge, England

    @richardbranson @virginpulse why i think virgin media having iso 90001 on testing bulk buying of @tim_cook stuff richard on your 2% losses since liberty carbon emissions uk with crap

  • josh_moreton Josh Moreton (@josh_moreton) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Yes the whole service is down and I’ve already registered the faults over the phone and I’ve used the app to get text updates. But the resolve time keeps changing and there no description to the fault itself.

  • josh_moreton Josh Moreton (@josh_moreton) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia any news on what the issue is in west Birmingham, had no phone, internet or TV for 19 hours now. Fed up of ringing the automated customer service number.

  • notdodgy Roger Leitch (@notdodgy) reported from Solihull, England

    @virginmedia Chat session indicates there is still a fault, with an estimated fix of the 26th. So basically I can expect very poor broadband for over a week.

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

    Starting to have all the same Connectivity problems with @virginmedia as before even now we have their “best” hub. Fed up of having connectivity issues with our supposedly connected home. One minute it works, the next it stops for no reason. All settings checked and correct.

  • notdodgy Roger Leitch (@notdodgy) reported from Solihull, England

    @virginmedia After an hour in a chat session, which involved factory reset of hub, the problem persists. Agent then goes and checks to advise a fault in my area - estimated fix this evening. Wondering if I am now back into the old fortnightly failure cycle..

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

    @virginmedia Nope no difference . Usually do this 3 times a day and normally solves the problem

  • markshawnwo mark shaw (@markshawnwo) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia I'm trying to get our bill down paying 134 a mouth is to much got the VIP package the first caller said could get it down to 99 then said no because we can't get 500 mb in our area got cut off now been on phone another 50 mins

  • markshawnwo mark shaw (@markshawnwo) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia 45 mins and counting been transferred 2 times told different things each time what is wrong with your customer service

  • MarkMarky222 Mark (@MarkMarky222) reported from Solihull, England

    @virginmedia absolutely disgusted with Virgin media’s service and customer service. Bill jumps up £20 form last month and been on the phone trying to speak to someone about it for 52 minutes now. Roll on July 12th when my contract finishes.

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

    @virginmedia 17th May I sent my complaint. It's getting very close....

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

    @virginmedia I've already tried calling. The agent wouldn't accept what I was saying and basically called me a liar so I tweeted you & you advised me to file a complaint on the website to which I've received no response at all. I feel my only chance of a result is to take it to CISAS.

  • LovesBunnys 🐰 Louise Owen 🐇 (@LovesBunnys) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Thanks i will be talking to them regarding the matter, as i don't feel virgin listened to me or took my complaint seriously.

  • LovesBunnys 🐰 Louise Owen 🐇 (@LovesBunnys) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Hi i last contacted you guys on the 27th May 2019 and i still have had ni response from you guys about a complaint i put in last month could you please look into this matter for me please. Mrs Dews

  • tonymartin82211 tonymartin (@tonymartin82211) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia is there anyway that I can stop this infernal Tivo box recording stuff on my suggestions that I would never dream of watching, it's doing my loaf in.

  • 6ft3Queen ✮。 👑🖤 𝟨𝒻𝓉𝟥𝒬𝓊𝑒𝑒𝓃 🖤👑✮。 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 (@6ft3Queen) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia down again 😤

  • EvanJoanette Evan Joanette (@EvanJoanette) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia Have to assume the cold-calling up-selling team aren't aware when customers have canceled their cable TV just a few months ago with notes to say they're only watching Netflix and want to pay less than £30. I try not to be rude, but seems a bit unfair on the team.

  • DNhunter85 Dave Hunter (@DNhunter85) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia shocking customer service

  • MrASingh Amrit Singh (@MrASingh) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia hey, what’s going on with your internet! It’s not working and it crashed one of my live streams I was on. Your status page is also down too!

  • Xxx_Rhi_xxX Rhi (@Xxx_Rhi_xxX) reported from Birmingham, England

    @virginmedia no signal on mobile in Birmingham. Cant make calls, text or use data! Also not seen the 'reimbursement' from the last disaster #sortitout

  • InfamousSuk Infamous Suk (@InfamousSuk) reported from West Bromwich, England

    One of the worst things i have ever done is move from @EE mobile to @virginmedia mobile as 4g is slower than a slug... currently getting 0.48mbps even my school internet was 2mb 15 years ago pdl 😡😡

  • CubDJS Drew J Hoskins-Smith (@CubDJS) reported from Dudley, England

    @virginmedia The complaint should have been received from two days ago. But yes, we'll see what happens.

  • CubDJS Drew J Hoskins-Smith (@CubDJS) reported from Dudley, England

    @virginmedia Yes, the Complaints team have just parroted the same statements back to me without listening to me as an actual person and advised me to talk to the movers team, which is confusing as the Complaints team should be the overall team to raise a complaint with, not just hand it off.

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

    Lloyds Bank is proberly the worst bank with the worst ideas of customer service I have come across in my life even worse than virgin media, your laughable and ameture approach to customers is pathetic, I should be using you as a example of bad customer service in my next series

  • JackalynHardy Jackalyn Hardy (@JackalynHardy) reported from Tamworth District, England

    @virginmedia what happening in the b77 postcode for the last 2 nights at this time my Netflix has gone down through the v box 😣

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

    Never mind Virgin media customers that don’t have mobile contracts. We’re happy to just keep turning our boxes on and off 4 times a day . Nice one 👍 @virginmedia

  • CubDJS Drew J Hoskins-Smith (@CubDJS) reported from Dudley, England

    @virginmedia I've moved house but remained a customer with no break in payments. As you can see, I was explicitly told to ignore my 'new' contract as it was just a formality with no changes to terms and I can't see any mention of paying two months at once.

  • CubDJS Drew J Hoskins-Smith (@CubDJS) reported from Dudley, England

    @virginmedia @richardbranson @BBCWatchdog @joelycett So, while off sick with anxiety, I thought I'd deal with one issue; Virgin Media wanting two months (which we cannot afford) at once as we've moved house. I thought it was an error but turns out it's bad business at play. Look.

    @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

  • 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
