Virgin Media Major Outage

Quote:
Virgin internet has stopped working amid what appears to be a major network outage.

Vast numbers of people reported issues with their wifi connections, which appeared to begin just before 10am UK time.

Virgin Media's service status page, which allows users to check whether they are affected by any given outage, also appeared to be offline, according to various customers who tried to use it.

Problems were reported right across the UK, according to tracking website Down Detector.

But Virgin Media said the issue was affecting some parts of London, though not everyone.

“We’re aware that some customers in parts of London are experiencing an issue with their broadband," a spokesperson said. "We are working as quickly as possible to restore services and apologise to those affected.”

The company's official Twitter feed is yet to post publicly about the outage. But it replied to a number of affected users apologising for problems.

Virgin Media, like many internet companies, has been hit by some high profile internet outages as the UK relies on their home connections to get through lockdown.

In late April, one issue lasted for hours, and left people without stable internet connections for much of the day.

Re: Virgin Media Major Outage

I had a problem with TV reception, with breaking up of picture and sound and the screen going blank. The testing page was hard to access and CS had a long wait. Eventually, the system told me there was in issue in the area that was being fixed. After a couple of hours it was.

No problems with broadband in this part of Coventry.

Re: Virgin Media Major Outage

I'm in Leeds and had my tv and internet going off here and there but only for short periods at a time over the last few weeks. It's been ok for the last week. The only thing I seem to be getting at the moment is my BB speed on 350 seems to be half what is was 150-220 tops any time of the day.
