Cold war lag.

Hello. I'm a new customer to virgin media, (I have the 500 package) I've noticed that when playing cod cold war on ps5 my character seems to elastic band all over the place. I've put my ps5 into DMZ and I've opend up my ports but it doesn't seem to have solved the issue. I never had this issue with my previous provider (sky), so I'm just wondering what the issue could be? Any help appreciated

Re: Cold war lag.

This could definitely be a Virgin issue, but I also believe the CoD servers are quite poor

If you download the .XML data and put it into Excel, you can see just how bad things actually are.

Re: Cold war lag.

Thanks for the post Jonnyd1988.

 

We can see some downstream power level issues so we've booked the next available appointment using your forum information.

 

Please check the details of this on your online account. 

 

Thanks, Emily.

Re: Cold war lag.

Hello Emily, I had to cancel the scheduled appointment as I was working at the scheduled time. So you think the power levels are the reason I'm facing awful connection to online games? Basically making gaming unplayable atm. 

 

Cheers
