Virgin Media suffered another broadband outage on Monday night (July 7th), it has been reported.

According to The Register, services were lost for approximately an hour and a half in the north-east of England.

When questioned by the news provider, Virgin Media refused to comment on the reason for the network downtime.

However, in response to a message on Twitter, the broadband provider noted that it had experienced another Domain Name Server (DNS) issue.

This follows a similar outage which affected broadband subscribers across the UK on Tuesday July 1st.

Gareth Mead, a Virgin Media spokesperson, told PC Pro that the company was "sorry" about this particular outage, which prevented access to certain websites for around an hour.

"It was quickly fixed although changing DNS settings in the interim would have solved the problem," he noted.

Virgin Media also experienced a DNS issue on Friday June 27th, causing a loss of connectivity for some broadband customers.
