So for some reason, my first attempt to post this got REJECTED. No explanation or anything, just rejected. So.. let's try again:
As many people have already mention here, as well as blowing up Virgins Twitter pages, my internet has also gone down the toilet over the past few days.
This wasn't something I had noticed until yesterday morning when the modem decided to reboot itself for some reason. After checking my speeds out of curiosity, I noticed that they had dropped considerably. Worse than usual when this happens (it happens a lot).
A few reboots of the router did nothing to fix this. I've looked over the internet and found people in random regions complaining about slow speeds. Talking to a friend on Twitter, from Southend-on-Sea, says his Virgin speeds are maxed out. So no problems there, but major problems here (Northampton).
Despite all the issues, there are zero reports on Virgin's site about any issues or affected areas. The Network Diagnostic Tool comes back as clean with no faults.
Usually when my speeds are affected, it's just the download or upload, but in this case, it's BOTH speeds being slowed down. This being the case, my upload speed is rubbish, and as a result I cannot upload my videos to YouTube (my main source of income) and therefore am losing revenue, and general web browsing feels very slow and cumbersome.
