Re: Gloucest (05 Area) Guess what's back? Back again?

Taking a 330mb speed drop and going back to BT, no point in staying with virgin when gaming is impossible given them plenty of time and phone calls apparently my connection is perfectly fine.............😑

I'll miss the download speed. Oh well hope they fix it for all that stick with them.

This has been going on for months on and off. Sadly it seems the only way they will look at addressing this is a drop in customer numbers and calls from ofcom.

Virtually unusable tonight. Spikes seem to be every 15 to 30 seconds for us on Warcraft...

Just unusable. What's the point in paying for the fastest internet in the country if your service is going to drop 10% of our packets?

Re: Gloucest (05 Area) Guess what's back? Back again?

I searched for the hop that's dropping all my packets and this was one of the top 5 search results from a year ago... sounds like others have had these issues that keep coming back every week or two before, and the chances of it being resolved doesn't sound great...

That could be something because my graph seems to have cleared for now but i bet it changes tomorrow again showing a ton of dropped packets :/.

Re: Gloucest (05 Area) Guess what's back? Back again?

Agreed it improved again about 30 mins after my post... but it seems I can toss a coin each night these days as to whether I'll be able to play games online or not.

Yes, It did clear up but it still ruined the entire day for my household and for how long? This just keeps coming back and the service is now unreliable.
