gaming high ms during night time around 7pm till 10:30pm

Hi guys,

For some reason, every night from7pm to 10:30pm, I am getting lag spike all the time from 30ms to 110ms and it repeats again and again, which makes my gaming unplayable, I am not sure if this is to do with the Virgin server issue?

Thanks,

Jack

Set up a Broadband Quality Monitor (BQM) at thinkbroadband.com - this will give you an insight into what is happening with the signal at the Hub, it will take a few hours to get any kind of trend showing.

Post a link to your BQM on here.

Hi Ahsih,

Thank you for your post and I am sorry that you are experiencing lag spikes whilst gaming. I have checked your account remotely and everything looks fine, and the BQM does not look worrying. Can I aks what connection do you have is it wired or wireless and how long has this been happening?

Thanks,

Zoie

Are you looking at the correct BQM? The one linked to looks bad with massive spikes at peak times.

Hi cje85,

I am unable to view the first BQM. I have checked the account remotely and there are no issues when the OP replies I can run further diagnostics with them. 

Thanks,

Zoie

I am currently connected with Ethernet cable, the download/upload speed is fine, but during peak time, it just spike up from 20ms to 100ms every 20-30seconds.

Hi ahsih, 

 

Thanks for coming back to us

 

Can you please confirm the following;

 

To achieve speeds of over 100Mb, the device must have a Gigabit NIC. Otherwise, the speed may be limited, can you confirm if the is applicable?

The type of Ethernet cable is also a factor when it comes to speed. We recommend a Cat 5e but preferably a Cat 6 Ethernet cable for our broadband speeds. What Ethernet cable type are you using? 

Kindest regards,

 

David_Bn
