Intermittent and slow broadband


Long story short, for about the last 2 weeks I've been randomly having very intermittent and/or slow broadband. 

Sometimes it's fine but when the connection starts having issues, I can't upload files, can't load webpages (or they load extremely slowly) can't manage to do a video call etc. All internet activity comes to a halt pretty much. 

Most of the time when I notice these issues start happening I'll check the service status in my area and there usually is a reported issue that is being worked on. I register my loss of service and then wait for it to be fixed and then it goes back to being fine again. Sometimes there are no reported issues despite still having the same problem and also suggests I'm still getting my full speed of 650Mbps down, 30 - 50 Up even though I'm not. 

This is happening very regularly now and it's seriously affecting my work and it's starting to **bleep** off my regular clients. (I'm self-employed and work full-time from home so super fast and stable broadband is extremely imperative to me.)  

Is it possible for a Virgin Media Rep to get in contact with me to discuss this and come to a resolution?
