[Brighton] High ping with constant disconnections.
I'm experiencing high ping and constant disconnections. This has been happening for the past few weeks. I live in a popular student area and with it being freshers week a lot of new students have moved in to their houses.I have horrible feeling that Virgin Media have over sold the line above its capacity again, this almost happens on a yearly basis. They have stools on the streets pushing students to sign up to there services.
Are Virgin aware that there is a current issue with constant disconnections and high ping? The Service status on my account says everything is fine when it quite obviously is not.
