Terrible Gaming Speeds

Hi

Over the last 2 months I've experienced awful gaming speeds on my PS4

I switched to Ethernet cable but seen no real improvement.

I do speed tests regularly through Wifi and regularly return between 70-130 mb DL / 7 mb UL / ping around 15-20 ms.

Called support once who were due to call back but never did and they just brushed it off as being peak times.

Any other suggestions here because it's driving me insane!

Re: Terrible Gaming Speeds

Is this directly due to being with virgin or is it widespread? Should mention that it's BF1 and seen a lot of forums discussing general problems with EA servers.

Any estimated time to fix? Bit frustrating paying a fortune for fast internet speeds when the primary reason is for gaming!

Re: Terrible Gaming Speeds

Hi Jonnyhf89,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community.

 

Sorry to read you are having an issue with the broadband speeds.

 

From checking your connection, there is a high peak time traffic fault in your area which is causing slow speeds. The reference number is F005355328 and has a review date of 25th April 2018. As this is a review date it can be subject to change.

 

Do you notice this issue at all times of the day or just during peak hours? If you complete a speed test on a PC/laptop through wired, is there a difference?

 

Let us know how you get on

Sam

Re: Terrible Gaming Speeds

@Samantha_L seems to be consistent regardless of peak or off peak.

April 2018 for a review date?! So I'm essentially going to have this problem for then next 7 months? This is not the package I signed up for...
