Huge latency Spikes

Hi, im having HUGE latency spikes... Ping is normally 20ms to brhm-core-2b-et-315-0.network.virginmedia.net, but spikes a LOT of times to 180MS and more. 

This is the first route my packages hit after leaving my network, so the issue is definitely with Virgin Media.

Here is a ping test to a German server, and as you can see, the ping spikes a lot on the first route, brhm-core-2b-et-315-0.network.virginmedia.net. , as worse as 500ms

This gets even worse at night. It's impossible to game with constant spikes like this that cause a LOT of stutter and lag.

This is using a wired connection obviously.

Re: Huge latency Spikes

It's likely due to congestion on the networks in your local area, unfortunately not a lot that can or will be done about it anytime soon, it requires capacity upgrades and network re-segmentation and neither of those comes easy or quickly,

I must advise also that cable is has never been a good service for reliable latency and if you need as much would be worth looking at DSL or Full Fibre options.

If I've helped please let me know 🙂 Matt

Re: Huge latency Spikes

This started happening in the last 4 months only...

I never had latency issues before. Thinking of closing the contract if it keeps happening
