Broadband started stuttering. Why? Is it permanent? Fixable?
My broadband has started to stutter. The line drops - then reconnects automatically after say 5 secs. Only broadband is affected. Phone is Ok. TV is ok. I have the 100Mb broadband package. I have been with Vigin Media about 8 months. Up until now, broadband speed has been consistently good - Speedtest shows 92.7Mb download and 6.2Mb upload.
I use my broadband mainly to access the stockmarket during the day and evening. I'm online a lot but my data usage is not high. I guess 300-500Mb. I am not downloading Gigabytes of films.
Q1. So why is has my broadband connection started to stutter? It is very annoying and interupts my trades.
Q2. Is stuttering now a permanent feature of the VM service?
Q3. Can stuttering be fixed?
I see many people get stuttering problems. If the stuttering continues, I will terminate my contract at the end of the contract. I've never had this problem before.

Welcome to the Community!
Really sorry to hear you're experiencing speed issues.
I've located your account and I can see an issue with the network in your area affecting speeds at peak times - Ref.(F004982427). Our technicians are working to get this resolved and have set a review date of 19th April 2017.
This doesn't match the intermittency of the fault you've described so I've run a diagnostic on your equipment and picked up an issue with your Upstream Power levels. I've sent you a private message (purple envelope at the top right of your screen) so I can arrange for a technician to take a look.
