Living virgin media

After 5 years using virgin media i've tried everything possible to keep gaming! 

NEVER going to see a pound from my pocket again virgin media! 

Disgusting experience on jittering and latency spikes! 

Feedback for everybody

Don't get M350 for gaming! Wast of money and time!

Re: Living virgin media

Only thing with Virgin that is good for is large file downloads or large house holds.

With gaming lower ping is good, you don't need high speed, go with a company that uses the Openreach network. Usually BT is the best ISP who use Openreach network..... because its BT Openreach.

Even a VM customer with no issues will always have higher ping than someone on the Openreach network because of how cable internet works and Virgin being late adopters to new cable internet technology.

Agree.  My BT VDSL is half the speed of my VM connection, but great for gaming, and no messing with Port Forwarding as it's IPv6 ....
