I think I’m another one of probably many people with in Wolverhampton area suffering the same problems as yourself, with unacceptably poor internet service at peak times. I can't believe Virgin Media are planning on faster speeds 100mb on there so called fiber optic network, which is actually a HFC Hybrid fiber coax network, with more of its network being coax cable then fiber optic.
My internet suffers with between 10-30% packet loss and pings between 100-400ms at peak times making gaming and voip Skype telephone calls impossible. Are you connected to the same Ubr as myself? I think if Virgin can only provide a usabe service 70% of the time I should only be paying 70% of the bill.
How did you hear about a possible fix date being aprox June?
I have been advised that the estimated fix time for this is 27/05/2011.
