Is Virgin Media down?
Lost all connectivity? It happens to us all at some point, and the cause varies. Sometimes it’s a problem with the equipment in your home, or there can be a network problem which knocks out a street or an entire area.
Before you go contacting Virgin though it’s worth running a few quick checks of your own. First, try a different web site or service to rule out a problem with the server you’re trying to connect to. Then try rebooting your devices. If that doesn’t work, move on to rebooting your Wi-Fi router. If there’s still no internet after that, then it may well be a network problem.
There are a few ways you can check for network problems.
Check the official Virgin Media Twitter as widespread network issues may be flagged up there.
Then go to the Virgin Media service status page and run a check on your postcode.
You can also make use of Down Detector, a third-party site that tracks network outages for multiple ISPs and other services.
If any of the above indicate a network problem, you’ll have to wait it out. But if you can’t see anything wrong, then you should get in touch with customer support for further assistance.

Complaining about Virgin Media to CISAS
If you’ve exhausted all the options with Virgin Media and still don’t feel you’ve got a satisfactory outcome, then you can make a complaint to the ombudsman. Each broadband provider uses one of two ombudsman services; for complaints about Virgin, you need to contact CISAS.
To go to CISAS, you’ll need to have received a deadlock letter from Virgin (a formal part of the complaints process which confirms that neither side can agree on a resolution). You can also contact CISAS without a deadlock letter if you have not heard back from them for eight weeks.
