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

Hi Jodi,

The technician came out and noticed a lot of noise on the line, which he has since corrected and changed the routing around. He was confident it would fix the issue, but unfortunately it still persists (and he observed this by looking at some pings/diagnostics from my machine). He suggested that he would book a second-line engineer to see if someone more familiar with the matter could help diagnose it. The downstream power values have also been corrected as suggested on this post.

Apparently this could be down to a utilisation issue, though I'm not entirely sure what that means.

Any advice you have in the meantime would be fantastic.

Thank you very much for your help so far.

Kind Regards,

Alfie J.

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

We have now had the 2 sets of technicians out to take a look at our connection. The first cleared some noise from the line, and changed some cabling in the junction box. The second two replaced an internal cable, and external connection which was suffering from corrosion. 

I regret to inform you that unfortunately we are still seeing issues as you can see by the graph I've attached below from the ping samples taken yesterday:

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

What firmware is your hub 3 on? as that could be the problem

Post your downstream power levels again....

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

Your issue and whats happen'd is exactly whats happen'd to me, ping/latency issues, 2 techs came out and did the same fix up on the property and told me no issues at all but guess what my issues still exist. From people asking for hub info to forum mods saying they don't see any issues from their end. (I don't blame these people but its becoming the same ol song and dance for many people) I just want an admission of a bigger fault and time/date of a fix. (if any)

Hi Kippies,

Here's a shot of my downstream power levels again:

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

TBF engineer has done their job, downstreams in spec and post RS have cleared up to nothing.

Latency on the BQM is still woeful, though.

Could be the effect of everyone at home, staff should be along and check utilisation levels soonish.

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

Thanks for getting back to me, Kippies. I just wanted to point out that this has been going on for a lot longer than the previous week or so - it started a long time before everyone was at home.

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

I have the same issues, been getting worse .. now gaming unusable. I am convinced it is since all the heavy rain, and local cabling in the street is at fault, but I can't contact any engineers now that call centres appear to be unmanned. How can I contact engineering to see if they are still working?
