M350 - Slow speed and latency for weeks

Joining in

Hi there,

My broadband has been awful for several weeks now- usually between 0.5Mbps and 10Mbps Download in speed tests, with occasional peaks around 50Mbps. It's consistently worse at night, and today has been basically unusable (<1Mbps).

I've tried restarting the hub and checking speeds in modem mode, but nothing in my configuration has changed.

The whole time there has been dropped packets as well- I think this graph shows that issue got really bad today:


Let me know if I can provide any other details- I'd love for it to be resolved quickly as I now have to rely on my phone's 4G hotspot to work. The service status tells me there are no issues in my area.


On our wavelength

That's pretty grim!  Unfortunately I'm in the exact same position as you!  I've created a thread in the hope that someone from the Virgin team will notice and provide extra feedback.  I've a 3rd engineer booked, will have to see what they think.  I'll likely ask that they change me to a different port in the cabinet to see if that helps.

Hello altermat.

Thank you very much for joining our Community.
Can I just apologise for poor service.
We can run a few tests from here and check on your equipment.
Sadly its not showing anything wrong, So I will need to send you a private message to gain account access and run further tests.
If you can check the purple envelope top right of your screen that would be great.
