So I’ve had virgin media for a month now and everything has been fine but the last couple days my connection keeps spiking every couple seconds. I’ve tried the usual stuff to fix this but nothing has worked, also tried different devices but the same thing happens with them.
Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's really great having you on board with us in the Community.
I'm sorry to hear that you are having an issue with your connection. Taking a look at the account I can see an engineer's visit has been scheduled for you. We cannot confirm the appointment time slot publicly, so to view this please sign in to My Virgin Media here: My VM
If the appointment is unsuitable or if anyone living at your property has tested positive for Coronavirus, has been asked to self-isolate or has flu-like symptoms then please reschedule the appointment on the same link.
the technician came out and nothing has changed. I still have the random ping spikes that go up to 600ms and really don’t know what to do. Nearly 2 months of no problem and all of a sudden this is happening. Honestly think i might leave Virgin Media as i can’t play any online game as it’s unbearable. The technician said i would probably need to use Ethernet cable but I’m right next to my router with nothing else connected to the router and the lag spikes still happen but like i said he want happening before.
Yes he changed settings for the hub but it didn’t help. He was very helpful but unfortunately it just isn’t fixed. Any idea why it would be perfectly fine the connection for nearly 2 months then instantly without me changing anything it’s just spiking all over the place?
Does this tend to occur across one device or a specific site/online service e.g, a specific game online?
Can you also please consider setting up a Broadband Quality Monitor and posting the link to the graph here once you've collected 24 hours of data? This way we can monitor your broadband in terms of latency and packet loss.
