Constant packet loss and disconnects

This issue has been plaguing me for many years, where I have been told by VM time and time again that the issues that appear on my line are none existent, I quote from my call today VM technician stated that they can see a packet loss of 0.59% for the overall month. They have called an engineer for the 14th July.

So can someone explain this, in the past, they have blamed "large downloads and multiple devices on router" causing issues, I've had callouts, routers upgraded/changed, and so on. I am currently on 1gb paying £79 for half the broadband service.

I discovered thinkbroadband last month after reading an article regarding VM denying latency/ping/packet loss issues to customers and decided to monitor my internet connection. I get approximately 3-7 days of 0 packet loss(the only time I can play multiplayer games without lag), the remaining days of the month are exactly like this in my graph attached below, causing havoc in gaming.

Just to confirm, there will be no charge for this visit unless:

The technician will confirm during their visit if any of these instances apply, and if so, a £25 charge will be applied to your account.
Please ensure that someone over the age of 18 is at the property for the time the engineer is there.

Re: Constant packet loss and disconnects

Hi Lee,

The issue isn’t resolved yet, as I’ve mentioned, this happens on and off. Half way through the month I will get packet loss. I get anywhere between 15-25 days of packet loss.

Rest assured, it will occur in the next few days, once that happens, I will need an engineer out. Therefore please hold for a few days more.

 

thanks
