Re: Vivid 200 for gamers

Wow, that's really bad.

I'm in a bit of limbo at the moment my internet is achieving 15-35Mbps (instead of 200Mbps), my TiVo box is dying and I'm paying for an old HD box with a terrible user interface.

Believe it or not... my bill is higher than that of 2 V6 boxes and the 200 VIVID Gamer option. I was considering upgrading (at what should be no cost), but I play FPS regularly and it looks like the SH3 would be awful for that.

What to do...

Re: Vivid 200 for gamers

Upgraded to Vivid for Gamers. First thing i have noticed Web Browsing seem's to be slower for some reason. Also i keep loosing IP Connection to all of the Connected Devices (Never used to do this on Standard 200mb)

Speedtest's seem to be Fine though.

Strange, been on the SH3 for best part of a year now and can confirm no issues with latency.  As a PC-FPS gamer I have no complaints.  On 200 Vivid now and going to gamer in May.

This is because there's not a lot of Virgin Media customers in your area once there is you'll start having a lot of problems. https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Gaming-Support/vivid200-gamer-not-recommended/td-p/3398571/page...

 

There's no difference between Vivid 200 & Vivid 200 gamer being on Vivid 200 gamer it will not improve your connection or it make any faster. ; )
