Since yesterday evening i've had very slow speeds (.5Mbps) compared to my normal 100Mbps. Had a web chat yesterday who mentioned there was a problem in the local area that won't be fixed until 9/9/21 which seems like a long time. Also mentioned theyd send an engineer over if its not working by this morning which it isn't.
Phoned 0800 561 0061 which said there was a complex issue but the website search says there isn't which is confusing. Heard on here the phone service status is more up to date so is the phone diagnosis right? 1 week to fix a problem seems like a very long time.
The 0800 number gives the most up to date info. Fix times are estmates only - if its a complex issue - like the one below then you may appreciate why that is and can be a long time.

Description: Status report || You might find that your Virgin Fibre, Virgin TV or TiVo® services are intermittent, with the picture freezing or disappearing now and then. We are sorry and our engineers are working hard to resolve this for you.
I have made a note of this on your account so the relevant teams are aware you are affected but due to the nature of the fault, there will be times where your power levels are out and slow speeds as well as disconnections may happen.
For now, I would advise to connect via an ethernet cable where possible to make the strongest connection but once the fault has been resolved, if you are still having issues, please let us know.
