Virgin Internet Down After Branson Asks For Bale-Out: Is It Connected?

Reports Virgin internet went down tonight have been circling like wildfire on Twitter tonight (27/04/2020) by many, many people…. So Has Virgin’s internet enterprise going down for millions of people got any thing to do with Richard Branson’s well heard of UK Government bale-out of £500m for Virgin Atlantic connected? Its certainly seems strange to us and millions of Virgin Internet users that he got a massive back lash due to him having paid NO tax in the United Kingdom for at least 14 years, including when he decided to sue the NHS.

So… Could this be Branson’s way of saying, you bailout Virgin Atlantic and I’ll switch your internet back on? Sounds like it could be to us and many millions in the UK no matter what part of the United Kingdom your in, basically a big man’s way of blackmail, basically saying you give me a loan and I’ll give some of the UK broadband again.

Richard Branson would describe himself as a philanthropist but surely at least 14 years of not paying UK income tax by holding off-shaw accounts shows him as the exact opposite?

Virgin Media, and Sir Richard Branson haven’t been without contriversy before but maybe this is just the tip of the iceberg and shows what he’ll really do (or try to do) to get what he wants, and when he wants it.

Judge it yourself, but make sure you read this post properly.

About The Product Serial Number

Nearly everyone has heard of and have seen a product serial number and most of us know that it is basically a product finger print that identifies them specifically however most don’t really know much about them, so in this post we’re going to tell you a bit about them.


A serial number is a unique, identifying number or group of numbers and letters given to an individual piece of hardware or software, passports, bank notes and other documents.

We’ll give you an example… A model number for a Samsung Galaxy S8 will always be Samsung Galaxy S8 and that’s true for every Samsung Galaxy S8 mobile phone therefore the model numbers are identical whilst each of their serial numbers is unique to a specific device.

If your item is stolen but you have got the serial number of that item it means that the police can log the serial number and they happen to come across the exact model as yours and they have reason to check it then they can take a look at the serial number and see if it matches the serial number that you provided them with when you reported that item lost or stolen, they are guaranteed that the item in their possession is yours meaning they can return it to you. So you can understand that even if it seems pointless it is in fact absolutely worth it.


You can see why the product serial number was a brilliant idea and is still used millions if not billions of times globally everyday.
