I have Virgin Media 100mbp/s connection, and allready 1 week i have VERY SLOW speeds, constant laggs, random disconnects and rubber banding (i hope u know what i mean)
I'm a competetive gamer,and for people like me stable connection is VERY IMPORTANT +in my house people are using internet for watching television and other stuff, so in this internet condition is almost impossible to do anything. We called VM and they told that in my area (Norbury), engineers are doing some work, i understand that maintenance is a good thing to keep everything run smooth but cmon, why regular custumers need to suffer because of that?
Speeds droped to ridiculous levels from 12-13mb/s to 1.5-2.
Latency in games dances up to 400ms all the time. Please tell me when those engineering works gonna end, and PLEASE try to fix our connection to acceptable level.
no idea on the work in progress - VM will get to the thread in about a week and will be able to give some detail if in fact there is any - not unknown for offshore to use such things as excuses
is the problem 24/7 or worse at peak times - if the latter then any work in progress could go on for a very long time - think many many months to years - if its 24/7 problem that could be many things - start by posting some info
are you testing wired or wireless - always test wired
log into superhub - 192.168.0.1 - DON'T SIGN IN, click router status - and post the downstream and upstream figures
be aware you have a 14 day cooling off period - you can leave within that period with no financial consequences - after that you are locked into your contract and the only way out is to buy out the contract - the max they charge is £240
Problem is 24/7.I even tried to test connection during nightime like from 00.00-04.00. Same thing. Before i have never experienced something like this. And yes im on wireless, im not able to check wired, cause router is on the 1st floor and my desktop is on the second. I'm using TP-Link Archer T4U AC1200 WiFi receiver, tried to switch wifi modes from AC to A, and other mixed modes like A/N/AC or older ones like B/G/N. Each one of them have same issues with slight differences, like random lagg spikes every 10 sec, or rubberbanding. My wireless signal is outstanding, never had problems with it, i even checked if i have packet loss - 0. I checked if my channels are overloaded, it showed that my chanel which i am using is totally fine.. I dont know whats the problem. Gonna post upstream and downstream figures for you if it helps
nothing jumps out there as wrong - unless VM can see anything you really need to do a wired test - even better if you can do it in modem mode - as said your wifi sounds fine but until you can prove its not the connection there are question marks
no change there - would not have expected any - the wired connection needs to be speedtests and tests to see if the connection is stable - if you get the same problems as you are seeing via wifi then that proves the fault is VM's side - if the connection is fast and stable then that points the finger at your wifi connection
Well i did speedtest and pingtest, pingtest showed me even bigger ms than Wifi (wired 20 and wifi 10 after couple of tests), which is strange i think. And jitter was the same on both wired and wifi - from 2 to 5.
