I am experiencing massive packet loss. Websites don't load properly and when they do load the images don't load after waiting and waiting for the sites to load. Just connected to discord which took over a minute and when it did connect and replying to DM's of online friends after I have typed my reply and hit enter it's still grey out for several seconds... So I went onto my discord server and clicked the connection green bar and it's constantly showing upto 5000ms packet loss and random numbers of packet loss no matter if it's an EU server or what...
Something isn't right here... This is making me itch..
It was fixed later that day. Also please do NOT direct me towards the service status, that thing completely LIES! It say's there are no issues when there clearly is. I would say 99.9% of virgin customers will agree with me on that. Also even running a line check results back as nothing wrong when there clearly is.
ISSUE HAPPENING AGAIN TONIGHT
The same issue is happening again right now and has been most of the night. I was watching twitch and the spinning circle kept of appearing over and over. Websites do not load properly and just hang and hang and hang then they load, when going to another website the same happens again. I ran a speedtest the download hits my max speed then goes lower, then it goes to upload and that sits at 0.00. I tried speedtest again and it seemed to work properly, so tried it a 3rd time and it did the same thing as the first time I tried it.
It seems intermittent, 30 seconds everything is fine and then it just goes to pot for minutes... There is a problem on virgin somewhere, be is packet loss bad DNS or something else I don't know, but certainly the online checker DOES NOT WORK or it is not picking the fault up.
