I'm new to Virgin broadband service, recently got the 100mbps fibre. I have noticed that the streaming is very slow on all of my devices , even the Facebook videos are loading very slowly and buffer all the time. I have tried Speedtest and it shows different results on different devices. On my iPhone it goes over 100mbps , on my laptop only about 50 Mbps but I still get a lot of buffering . I tried modem mode and used my old router and I got the same results . Does anyone else have the same problem or does anyone know how to deal with this? I hope is some setting on the router that could hopefully sort things out. Few months ago I gave up 40mbps connection from TalkTalk which to be honest performed a lot better , never had buffering issues throughout the 2 years contract ... I guess I should've never left TalkTalk but the Virgins offer sounded better with better speeds at same price. Any suggestions would be well appreciated.
Thanks for getting in touch, I am sorry to see you have been having trouble with your connection.
I have taken a look and it seems there was an issue with SNR and FECS (Signal to Noise Ratio and Forward Error corrections) in your area recently, this seems to have improved over the past few days and the connection is now looking healthier.
How are things looking from your side now?
If you are still having trouble let us know and we'll be able to take a further look into this for you.
Thanks for getting back to me. Firstly I would like to update the situation. In the last week I have noticed massive speed drops . I understand that there are peak times when I can expect some slowing down but I'm talking about 5-6 Mbps speeds in the evenings . Considering that my subscription states 100 Mbps I consider this issue to me more than just peak time restrictions. To answer your question the slow steaming issues applies to all of the websites I visit wether is YouTube , Facebook or Netflix. Also I tried wired and wireless connection, 2G and 5G compatible devices, router restarts every evening, etc. The situation has been the same since Day 1. Please keep me updated in regards of the reported issue in my area. Thanks, Daniel
