Re: constant lag ingame since joining virgin media

The problem is your Superhub 3, in short its a pile of sh*te it causes constant Strict NAT type on gaming consoles and has hardware issues (not caused by Virgin Media) that is causing lag spikes, its a UK wide problem.

If you want super fast lag free broadband get onto Virgin Media's tech support by calling 150 from your Virgin phone and request a Superhub 2 AC.

Tell them they either send you a Superhub 2 AC out or come and remove their equiment due to breech of contract on the grounds of not being able to provide the advertised service.

Unfortunately until they bring out a new hub these issues won't be going away anytime soon so its currently your only choice.

Re: constant lag ingame since joining virgin media

Hello Mick71

 

Welcome to our forum, I am sorry you are having problems with slow speeds, we do have some high peak time traffic in the area however there seems to be something wrong with the line or hub as well, think it may be best to let one of our engineers take a look if you are up for it.

I will send you a forum private message arrange an appointment should you wish.

 

Many thanks

Nicola

Re: constant lag ingame since joining virgin media


I posted yesterday about the same thing,I cannot play PS4 online,esp Fifa17,as I have a ping of 130ms,which is ridiculous. I've bought a cat 6 ethernet cable,still no better. I tried using online chat,only to post my question then get told it wasn't available and redirected, like you do on the foreign call centres, that I won't phone anymore. Please can you look into my connection, I'm a new customer with superfibre 50.(which I've already had issues with overbilling, which I had to go instore to rectify,twice.But they can't help with technical issues apparently..) I live in the 14 area and my name is Steven Brennan.thanks,as my question post received zero replies to help.

You get a cooling off period of 14days, I would cancel completely!

Re: constant lag ingame since joining virgin media

Gone past that timescale, unfortunately. Don't see why I should have to order older model tech either, they need to fix these hub3s **bleep**!
