Lag spikes

So people ,The last 3 years i have constant lag spikes during gaming the cause to freeze in game when the internet drop or even disconnect totally from the game.

Also I can notice them when im surfing on the internet that some times the connection freeze for a few seconds and doesnt load anything.

After contacting virgin through phone and community in both cases blamed the games that im playing (wow-league of legends-csgo)  and ignored that i have the same issue when im just surfing.

I contacted the games support that asked me to send them winmtr on their ip's.

Their answer was :As per the tests that you've attached I could see some latency spikes starting from the very beginning, at your router, as you can see (as per 'Wrst' column). Here, we could suggest you the following steps:(link that says how to restart router) and if that doesn't work, please reach out to your ISP for additional comment.

Ofcorse I have restarted and reset the router as was one of ma first actions.

It has been 3 years that im trying to fix that issue and have contacted virgin a handfull of times and noone gave me an answer except restart your router.

Is there anyone that knows what to do?

Re: Lag spikes

Are you on a wired or wireless connection when you experience these issues?

Re: Lag spikes

Hi Papous15, 

 

Thank you for posting your findings. 

 

I have taken a look at our side and ran some tests for the service and everything appears to be in the green and running as expected. 

 

How has the service been since your previous post to us?

 

Thanks 

 

 

Nat
