Packet Loss, Disconnects and Red Ping Spikes

Joining in

Good afternoon


Over the last few weeks I have been experiencing intermittent issues with Virgin Media broadband which mainly involve connection disconnects and packet loss. These issues are impacting both wired and wireless connections.

As a result, I have started using the Broadband Quality Monitor (BQM) which has shown red spikes most days recently. In addition, my Hub 3.0 router has various warnings in the logs (RCS Partial Service (Warning!) and No Ranging Response received - T3 time-out (Critical)).

Please could you suggest what steps should be taken.

Thanks for your help.

Good evening

I continue to have issues with Virgin Media broadband on an almost daily basis with disconnects occurring usually in the evening. Every time I check the status it refers to there being issues in the area that are being worked on. What is the position please?

Hi Kain

I am getting red spikes on the BQM right now and am having internet access issues.

When will this be resolved pleased as these intermittent issues have been going on for some time now?

I also had a really bad connection from 10am to 11am this morning, before I then lost connection totally from around 11am to 11.20am. 

We can certainly appreciate your frustration with this Patrol0818.

I have taken a look on our side and it is showing the estimated fix date of 02/09/22 15:00.


Thanks for the update.

Has this issue now been fixed? I'm still seeing a few red spikes from midnight to around 8am this morning.
