My WiFi stopped working on Thursday morning. We’ve been without WiFi ever since. The service status page has said the entire time that broadband in the area has no known issues (although it has said there is an issue with tv VOD which is also true). When we finally got through to someone on the phone they said there is a known issue with broadband and that we should only expect it to be fixed on Monday. The service status page still says everything is fine. I got in contact on Twitter and, absurdly, was told I need to post here to get someone to look into it again.
What is going on? Why is the WiFi down? When will it be fixed? Why does virgin media think it is acceptable to lie on the service status page?
Hi jamiem19901, thanks for contacting us, we are sorry to hear that you are having issues with the connection. I have looked at the area and can see that there is a fault due to be resolved on the 9th. The reference number is - F008784994 ^ChrisF
The website still says no problem with broadband. It also says that there is a problem with tv but that it should be fixed on 8 February by 16:00. I’ve just got a text saying the issue should be resolved. And you’ve just said there is an issue with broadband but that it should be fixed on 9 February.
Which is it? How do I know to believe what you say over the other things? What should I tell my work about my ability to work from home next week? What will you compensate me for - will it be for each day of work lost for each of me and my partner?
As well as trying the “check service,” Area status webpage" (link at top right of this forum), also try the “free & automated” Service Status number - 0800 561 0061 - which usually tells you of more local issues down to postcode level. These may not be listed on the Area Status web page (Areas are not “Geographic” they are billing areas) as that usually only covers faults affecting 1000’s of customers) so phone may give you more info, but even that wont cover problems affecting just a few customers.

Ok that phone number says it will be fixed by 9am, so yet another system with yet another answer. No two systems have given a same answer AND you’ve sent me a text to say it is fixed when it clearly isn’t.
When can I expect this to be fixed, and how do I know I can trust that answer? Why are all the systems giving me different answers? Why does Virgin Media think this is an acceptable way to treat paying customers?
Hi jamiem19901, we have look directly into the fault number and showing as the 9th, although this is an estimated fix and may be fixed sooner, Can you confirm if you are still having issues with the service? Chris
