gamer package

does 5 pound extra a month for the gamer package mean if you dont opt for it you will be throttled to make room for the fools that do its beyond a joke . 5 years ago I was playing on halo multiplayer with the old type of adsl connection and did not have the constant lag and connection problems for a fraction of the price I am paying now . In the old halo days I was lucky to get 5 meg  and I played for hours and downloaded as much as I could I am on vivid 150 paying almost 80 pounds a month and am throttled for a service that should be 30 times better will wait till the end of the month then im off ,it could be construed as theft as virgin are not willing or perhaps able to provide a service they have agreed too

Re: gamer package

Re: gamer package

Virgin overselling bandwidth, are slow to upgrade it can take a year or so to resolve, despite price increases of way above inflation. If OFCOM had any teeth they would stop them overselling above a small %

Re: gamer package

Hi daddyyule, 

 

Thanks for getting in touch I'm sorry to see you have been having trouble with your connection. I have taken a look and things seem to be ok from this side. 

 

I am having a little trouble seeing your power levels currently. Pop the power levels across to me and we can investigate further:

 

192.168.0.1 in the browser, log in  Username is admin and the password will be changeme, unless you have changed it.

Go to Advanced settings.

Go to Network Status, copy the results back here.

 

Speak to you soon. 

 

Emma

Re: gamer package

Oh and the games package, gives you no speed increase download, no improvement in ping, no priority, but it does give you a faster upload speed, handy for streaming no point in gameplay
