Re: [Update] FIFA - Connection Issues

I've had issues with this ISP for 3 years when it comes to this game, apparently the routing is very poor when it comes to how Virgin connect to EA servers

I'm not tech savy enough to explain it but something about VM going from A to C to E to B when obviously in reality it should just be A to B

Whatever it is, it's ruining a lot of peoples gaming experience when it comes to this game.

Re: [Update] FIFA - Connection Issues

DISGUSTING TO BE BLANKED FOR 2 WEEKS, VIRGIN ARE ROUTING MY PACKETS UPTO 20 DIFFERENT PLACES BEFORE THEY HIT MY PS4, CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS AS I AM CONNECTING TO AMAZONS SERVERS TO PLAY THE GAME IN IRELAND, NO NEED AT ALL FOR THE SLOW PING HIGH JITTER AND EXCESSIVE ROUTINGS.

2020 AND NEVER EVER LOWER THAN 30 PING EVER ON ANYTHING! WHY DO I HAVE 100MB WITH MIN 30 PING?

Not virgin media fault. EA sports and it’s been investigated. I’m in the same boat like a lot of others are. Just need to wait till this gets resolved. EA sports needs to fix this problem.

Re: [Update] FIFA - Connection Issues

Unfortunately even before hitting Amazons servers in Ireland my packets are being routed up to 20 times! I have friends in London with under 20 ping i am never, ever under 30.

Robert since when were you CCNA/MSCE qualified to tell me what my problem is? Have you any background in Networking at all. How is it not Virgins fault, come tell me know since your an expert?

BOTH parties need to do their bit here; incredible its happening.

Re: [Update] FIFA - Connection Issues

Like the rest of the problems with VM latency 7 people in a street only one with probblems is a VM customer surprise surprise. 10x the speed with 1/10th of the quality and regular 30-40% packet loss is VM's offering , consol users have little access to information to disprove VM Lies and often  less knowledge so easier to fob off with lies too.
