Hi Virgin media recently did works in our area and notified us of potential downtime. However its been 2 days since the work was completed and we got the "everything fine email"
However scene then we are having drops in connection every 5/15 minutes I ran a test on your broadband fault detector online. It came back as detected a fault and for me to come back in 24 hours to book an engineer. However when I did this 24 hours later it still showed a fault and had reset my timer to 24 hours again.....
So basically could you guys help me book an engineer please because I really don't want to be told on the phone to turn it off and on 50 times or change my WiFi band.
Check first for any “known network faults - try in 2 places
1) Try the “check service,”Area status webpage" (link at top right of this forum)
2) Then also try the “free & automated” Service Status number - 0800 561 0061 - which usually gives the most up to date info. and tells you of more local issues down to street cab/ postcode level.
If its a known fault, you cant get a Tech visit until it has been fixed

I do not work for VM. My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired 2 WiFi,) SH2 in modem mode with Airport Extreme Router +2 Airport Express's. On VIVID200, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.
So I've had 3 Engineers out and the last two both said it's probably network related issue. They also said that on there device it shows 5% unresolved upload errors or something like that. Basically I just wanted to make sure this is being looked into as I'm still struggling with intmintent connection drops and a upload speed when it's working of 25mb/s not the 52Mb/s I should be getting on the 1 Gig package.
Could someone look into this from a network end please feel free to DM if you need more information.
Thanks for coming back to the thread. I've done a system check here and a ticket was raised - F010246766 - this was for the network spiking. This has been closed. I have checked it and it's seemingly settling down but the team are still monitoring it.
