Re: VM CORE NETWORK FAILURE {URGANT}

Been with them since 2018, October 13th to be exact. The first year on the M50 was eventless, then problems started, ever since its problem for a few months, then fixed, then it starts again.

I'm quite disappointed.

I feel like the only option left is openreach FTTP or the altnet that is pulling fibre down my street as we speak this very second.

The altnet is Netomnia - in partnership with YouFibre

It's not only an incentive because its cheap, as you can see, but because I suspect the service will be more reliable.

I remember being told by virgin on the phone once that

"...virgin costs more as it's a premium service."

I'll just leave you with that.

Re: VM CORE NETWORK FAILURE {URGANT}

Has there been any word on fixing this issue? Its causing me to have lag spikes during work hours and when I try to relax when gaming..

Re: VM CORE NETWORK FAILURE {URGANT}

Did everyone get packet loss around 12:15 this afternoon? The 3 BQM graphs I've seen, which are mine, @wackydude1234 and @risc19 all appear to have. Or is it just pure coincidence?

Appreciate everyone's persistence with VM on this. I play mostly CoD Vanguard and only at peak times. It has been pretty dreadful for the last few weeks, though some times it's perfectly playable. It's probably a combination of VM and the CoD servers, I know there have been some problems since release.

Sorry, I don't think i heard correctly.

Last time they said to me that they have a focus on reliability and that BT and the competition is unreliable.

The competition is reliable, thats how its faster the majority of the time.
