Area 21 speed atrocious

Hi,

The speed in area 21 has been an absolute joke for the past 2 months. Latency is regularly over 600ms in peak times. Tonight has hit tipping point where I can't even load a static text only web page. On running a constant ping, latency is well above 800 the majority of the time, and drop outs are frequent. When is this going to be sorted. Sick of it.

It's bloody awful. I'm currently shopping around for another provider now. Can't take this anymore.

Virgin are greedy by taking on new customers when they can't even provide their current customers with decent broadband in the evenings because of over utilisation!!

Re: Area 21 speed atrocious

Mine drops to about 5mb down and 3mb up. Supposed to have 100mb connection. Streaming is terrible in the evenings. Been going on for far too long now.

Mine starts from about 7pm till midnight. I have no internet currently and am using my phones data allowance.
