So I currently pay for the 200 Mbps service from virgin however over the past couple of weeks I have been encountering numerous buffering/dropped connection issues using various devices and both by WiFi and ethernet connections.
I spoke to an unhelpful tech support person the other day that seems to think that the issues lie with the following companies:
Netflix, Amazon video, playstation network, Xbox live, YouTube etc
Saying that there is nothing wrong with the service they are providing.
I am at my wit's end with this however before I cancel my service and look elsewhere is there a way that I can speak to someone that actually knows what they are doing or should I just cut my losses and leave?
The recommended range for downstream power levels is between -6 and +10 and several of your channels are above 10. This can result in slow speeds and/or the hub disconnecting from the VM network, which matches the symptoms you described.
This will need a technician to visit you to correct the power levels. You can call VM and try to book a visit or wait for the VM staff to get back to this thread and they can help you book a visit. It may take the staff a few days to get to this thread.
Disclaimer - I don't work for Virgin Media. I'm just another VM user trying to help out. My setup: V6 TV box, Vivid 200 Optical fibre with Hub 3 in modem mode connected to a Netgear R7000 router. Telewest/VM user since 2001.
As a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share my knowledge. I don't work for Virgin Media.
Were you able to speak to the team yesterday about this? If you have has everything been resolved?
If it hasn't, I would love to help further with this but I would need some further information from you to be able to do this. I'll drop you a PM asking for the details I would need to be able to access your account, if you are still having trouble with your broadband, please reply to that message and I'll be more than happy to help.
