Very high latency, packet loss, and ping spikes throughout the day

Hi Virgin Media,

Over the past couple of months I've been experiencing extremely high latency, packet loss, and ping spikes throughout the day. The download/upload speed seems to be fine, but the ping makes online gaming near impossible. I've tried resetting my router and modem, as well as changing router but no luck.

Here are some screenshots from thinkbroadband over the past week:

Please could you advise on the matter?

Thank you in advance, I look forward to hearing from you.

Alfie J.

Re: Very high latency, packet loss, and ping spikes throughout the day

Go to 192.168.0.1 in your browser, or 192.168.100.1 if in modem mode

 

Do NOT LOG IN

Post your upstream, downstream and network metrics from your HUB.

Screen captures are nice, C&P will do though.

 

Someone will get a look for you.

Going by that your downstream power levels are too high. If they dont come down you'll need an engineer out.

Hi Jodi,

If anything, they've got worse. The screenshots I've posted are all from the previous week (I incorrectly captioned them as February - they are all from March).

Thank you for getting back to me.

Kind Regards,

Alfie J.
