For over a month now I have been experiencing terrible lag and packet loss while gaming. It has become impossible to go a single game without my connection dropping and being kicked from the game. My connection is also dropping on other devices such as phones. This seems to be getting worse and worse as the days go on.
Thanks for getting in touch, and a warm welcome to the Community Forum! I'm sorry that you're having some problems with your broadband connection.
I've been able to locate your account using your Forum Details, and I can see that there are some issues with your connection. I'd like to book a technician visit for you. I'll just need to confirm a few details with you via Private Message, please look out for a purple envelope in the top right corner of your screen.
Yes it is happening on all devices but most noticeable on the ps5 whilst gaming as it constantly disconnects when playing online which is extremely frustrating. It's so unreliable that I have had to resort to tethering from my phone using 4g to play online now.
As you can see from the BQM, it only seems to be getting worse by the day.
Looking at your account I've managed to find that your connection is being troubled by an area issue. This issue isn't one we'll show online due to the nature of the issue, so I'll explain what that is and what we're doing to fix it. The issue is related to an unexpected rise in broadband use on your network, with the mass increase of smart phone and tablets and people working from home
The reference number for this is F009247504 and we have an estimated fix time of the 9th September
