Virgin Media suffers major outage across UK as internet crashes
Almost 30,000 Virgin Media customers have reported outages of their service on Tuesday, with their internet down and the company's own fault-reporting website out of action.
By 0820 BST there had been more than 28,000 reports of Virgin Media outages on the Downdetector website. Problems appear to have started around 0100 BST. A web page provided by the company to report problems was inoperable.
The recently merged Virgin Media O2, which is owned by Liberty Global and Spanish firm Telefonica, has not provided any information so far on the outage.
On Monday, US data and cloud storage firm Western Digital reported a cyber hack on some of its systems, but gave no further details. Services were still down almost 48 hours later.
