I'm new to these forums and thought I'd help out fellow virgin media users. I was initially with Sky for standard ADSL broadband and using their router which was pretty impressive as I had no issues whatsoever with latency and gaming (I was getting 8Mbps), then I went with EE and it was good for a while until for some odd reason I would have random lag spikes here and there, sometimes gaming on the PS4 was impossible. Now I'm with Virgin Media trying out their 50Mbps fibre as I cannot receive BT fibre optic.
At the moment I've had it for just nearly 2 weeks and in all honesty I've been suffering random lag spikes on the PS4, download speed is great (I'm getting roughly 60-70Mbps on other devices). I have had a glance over the forums and can see the PS4 and Xbox One are having issues with latency I'm a bit of geek myself with this sort of stuff especially as a Computer Science student.
So basically initially I've had problems from day 1, random lag spikes sometimes low download speeds just on my PS4 but the PS3, laptop and everything else works wonderfully!
Here are some solutions I hope can help you guys!
My PS4 is located in the attic which is two floors up from the router, I never had an issue with Sky Broadband with it working perfectly everything worked wonderfully via Wi-Fi and same with EE to an extent.
