Im on 200/20 package and via normal TCP web page speed test I usually get 219/21.5. Frustratingly this does seem to drop during peak hours (even though Virgin insists it does not throttle).. The big issue is via PSN my upload speed is permantently being throttled to 2mb Upload.and will not surpass that although it was c. 20mb when I first logged in and tested a week ago. Download is 190mb psn which is reflective on speed expected.
Why am i being throttled to 10% upload on the psn traffic type!? This is unacceptable, not what I'm paying for and very disappointing of Virgin Media.
(pls no replies insinutating psn speed test is unrelaiable.. please read above- as a week ago when first fired up the console it showed much higher upload) thank you.
I don't know, something has changed, because for the last 4 weeks I've had my uploads throttled at 5mbps. (down is a consistent 50, which is what the package im on states, so that's great)
Obviously, given the circumstances there is no one to call, and no options to look into what is going on. I was actually going to upgrade my package, but I can't do that either. I can't actually find anything on the webportal about my min. speeds any more. Maybe its cabin fever, but I swear I used to be able to see what speeds I was promised.
Any ideas on this guys? Why my upload speeds won't go faster than 5mbps?
@lonebb It gets confusing when someone jumps into an existing thread, but in your case what upload do you expect to get? The 50Mb service is a very old one and I thought it has been upgraded to 100Mb, but isn't the upload speed set at 6Mb anyway?
You mean it started around the time people were advised to stay at home and more people in any given area were likely to be online? 😛
Areas that are over utilized are going to be a lot more apparent right now as record numbers of people are having to use things like video streaming services for school or remote connections for work, nothing will have "changed" other than there being more people online than VM would have normally expected when they sold subscriptions to people who live in the same area as you
