The engineer will NOT be called out, it is Virgin over selling to customers and too many people on the same network, nothing can be done by an engineer. You will have to wait until Virgin expand the network in your area which can take months or not at all. You either live with it or change to another ISP.


Notwithstanding whether it is overutilisation or not (looks like it!), if you call in as a fault and VM's test shows that the down power levels do need adjusting, they will send out an engineer to bring them into range (usually they just fit an attenuator onto the coax cable)

Also VIP's (me!) have been advised to alert VM staff to potential over-utilisation issues for new customers. I will do that so keep checking back here.

Hi Said-R

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community

 

My apologies for this. It's looking like SNR not congestion, so I've emailed a colleague to log this with the network. I'll be in touch when I know more which will probably be tomorrow

 

Kind regards,
