Connection Lag + Packet Loss

I've been having massive issues with lag and packet loss over the last week. The issue is constant, but the spikes seem to come and go everyone few seconds. The packet loss means things like submitting tickets and information usually takes 3/4 tries before the information is actually passed.

I am a big World of Warcraft player, and unfortunately the game has been unplayable over the period in question, with massive lag spikes and packet loss.

I have tried all of the tips listed on similar posts, and on the actual virgin website. I even tried the Blizzard recommended fixes, but as the problem persists outside of World of Warcraft as well, it seems the issue is not anything on Blizzards side. I have reset renewed my IP, I have reset the router with the pinhole, I have reset the router to factory settings using the web browser, and nothing has fixed my issues. Ofcourse I have checked all the cabel connections, and the connection itself is over ethernet. Internet features on my Virgin Media TV are also affected intermittently, with it showing connectivity errors when in the menu's etc.

Service Status shows no issues in my area (including no Broadband issues), but when I then run a further Broadband specific test, it shows an issue in my area, but gives no further details regarding the issue, and no expected ETA on any fixes, just to check back to the page for further updates, of which there has been none over the last 4 days.

I really need this issue to be sorted out, as it is making the internet basically unusuable for my needs.

That's the traceroute / MTU / Ping test to blizzard servers, showing plenty of packet loss. 

Can someone please help me with this issue as I waited over a week now to raise any concerns due to the Broadband status saying there is an issue, but ofcouse, it is still saying this and giving no details. I have rang Virgin, and get told the same thing, without having any option to speak to a human.

Please help :((

Re: Connection Lag + Packet Loss

Hi there @Nikilaijai, welcome back to our forum and thanks for your post.

Sorry to see that you have been having issues with the connection, especially while gaming. We'll do our best to help you get back up and running as soon as possible. 😊

I have checked our systems and can see that a short term stability issue in the area is affecting multiple users. There has been no timescale given for this, however, generally when these are showing they should clear within 24-48 hours.

If you still see issues with the connection after this time, please let us know. We will be happy to assist further.

Regards

Nathan
