Near Constant Packet Loss

ClapperJuan
Joining in

Been with virgin for around 2 years now and as the month go on the speeds provided are going slowly down and packet loss is getting worse and worse by the day, The prices skyrocket yet the product provided is poor, i live in a household where wifi / internet is essential but they do not seem to care and instead would rather " Diagnose " things and say its all well, i have tried all the tips and tricks provided by them and nothing has been helping iam getting sick and tired of it honestly and even considering switching providers. I am getting a quality monitor setup to catch this packet loss on a graph but not sure how long that will take anyways here is other things that may help.

HUB Type: 3 
Speeds Paid for:  50mb/s Down 40mb/s Up

Speed provided: 35 - 40mb/s Down 20 - 30mb/s UP
Ping: 23ms average Spikes up to 2000ms randomly
Packet Loss: Jitter From 20 - 30 % every 2 -  3 seconds

Hello ClapperJuan.

Thanks for your post.

Sorry to hear about your connection degrading.

We have the ability to run a few checks on your hub from here and can see the upstream levels are way out of the range we require.

To get this resolved we need to send you a private message to pass security and arrange an engineers visit.

If you can check your logo at the top right of your screen that would be great. 
Regards

Thanks for confirming the requested details via PM @ClapperJuan 

I've booked an engineer for you to come out and have a look into the issue with the power levels. You can find confirmation of the visit via your 👉 online account.

Please let me know if there are any problems with the date or time and I can look to reschedule this for you. In regards to the appointment there are some details you need to know about. There will be no charge for this visit unless:

•The engineer diagnoses the faults as not being caused by our network/equipment 
•The engineer discovers that the fault or problem relates to your equipment
•The engineer discovers that the fault or problem relates to any system that we are not responsible for

The engineer will confirm during their visit if any of these instances apply, and if so, a £25 charge will be applied to your account.

Please ensure there is someone over the age of 18 present at the time of the visit. If you need to change or cancel your appointment you can also do this online or via the MyVM app by 4pm the day before the appointment.

If you do miss an agreed appointment for any reason, a £25 missed appointment charge will be applied to your account on the day of the appointment.

Let us know how the visit goes! 😊
