More Terrible Latency - VM interested?

Just another unhappy gamer here. Have been with Virgin Media for many years because they used to be very good. Now it’s hard to game online during waking hours. Everything is fine in the middle of the night, so a clear case of oversubscription if ever I saw it. Another BQM of pain. This one’s from yesterday, but they all tell a similar story:

Are Virgin Media recognising this as a problem or are all these threads falling on deaf ears? Is the only option to change ISP?

Looks like the forum graph didn't work, so here's a direct link to BQM:

your BQM link isn't working.. but assuming that it is oversubscription, then the short answer is "not really".

You have a couple of options. 

1. sit it out and hope that VM address it in a sensible timescale (it's probably worth reporting your dissatisfaction to them...)

2. seek an alternative provider

Re: More Terrible Latency - VM interested?

Looks like there was latency on the forum as well. Hence the duplicate posts.
