Huge Ping and packet loss

Over the last 10 days we have been suffering from extremely high ping timeouts, up to 600ms and extensive packet loss. This is not only making gaming impossible due to game lag or even being booted out of games on both PC and consoles, but is also affecting normal web browsing.

It is all well and good having high speed internet (a Volt Oomph 1gb), but when the quality of service with such ping issues and packet loss means that the high speed cannot be used, this then becomes unacceptable. Please respond with details of what is causing this and the steps that are being taken to rectify the issues.

Lancashire area if this makes any difference.

Thanks

There is an engineer booked for Saturday. Will have to see how that goes. Thanks

The engineer came out on Saturday and made some changes to the settings. Unfortunately the problem remains particularly when gaming or in video calls

Once the test begins click on: Run full test to see Latency, Packet Loss, Jitter, Upstream rates

I have done several tests with samknows but the problem is intermittent. We have been monitoring with thinkbroadband. Attached is a screenshot from today

 I have been told that the pictures did not appear on my post yesterday. These are them again. If you cannot see them please comment to let me know. Thanks

 

The images were not allowed as it showed personal information, presumably the IP address

Thanks for coming back to us @bbirtwell 

Your levels are still out of spec, I'll send you a PM to book in another tech.

Best wishes.
