Hub5 constantly dropping

Joining in

As title really, I am seeing constant complete drops of internet access across both wired and wireless devices, these drops happen many times across the day and only last a few seconds at a time but are very frequent when they do happen.


Router status images attached showing state when there is access and when there isnt, we have an engineer booked but any help at this stage appreciated.stats down.jpgstats up.jpg

HUB 5x I assume with it being FTTP. 

Not much can be done yourself if you have an intermittent issue (Could be a 'dirty' fibre cable).

Everything has been fine since install, just started last few days.

Got an engineer booked for Wednesday guess it's just a case of suck it up until then 😞

Hi @BryMich 👋.

Thanks for reaching out to us, and welcome to the Community Forums. Apologies for the issues you have had with your Hub 5x. Glad to hear you have an engineer booked, please keep us updated on this. 



So had the Hub replaced and wiring all checked on the 21st February, the following graphs are all showing regular latency spikes of 100ms roughly every hour

These latency spikes are consistent every day, unsure of why or what is causing them??

Speedtest ran this morning 3/3/24

Any advice or pointers appreciated

I believe those are tests being run by VM.  There is an older thread here somewhere about this topic.  Nothing you can do about this as I suspect it will stop eventually when the XGS-PON service is matured.
