VIRGIN Media has gone down today with customers reportedly suffering internet issues while working from home.

The internet provider has received a number of complaints with customers saying their issues with their internet, broadband or TV.

According to Down Detector, the issues started at around 12.41pm, and are affecting users across the UK.

Thousands of homes across the UK are affected.

And there has been issues in Sussex.

The Argus:

While the reason for the outage remains unclear, of those who reported issues, 77 per cent said they were having problems with cable internet, 18 per cent with mobile internet, and 3 per cent with TV.

Virgin Media has 8.7million TV customers and 6million broadband users.

Virgin Media went down for hours at the end of June, when it suffered a broadband outage in London as well as TV issues.

A Virgin Media spokesperson said the problems only affected people in Nottingham, despite the Down Detector map suggesting otherwise.

He said: “We’ve fixed the local issue which meant customers in the Nottingham area briefly lost broadband services.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
