Packet loss, poor speed

I have 200mbps service, cat 6 cable directly to pc, all has been well until a fortnight ago. Now once or twice a day, usualy late evening, my download speed drops to single figures and spikes back up to around 150 constantly and upload speed drops below 1mbps. I have repeatedly rebooted hub and pc, reset hub, changed the cat 6 cable etc etc. Not surprisingly service status shows no problems in my area. Any ideas will be greatfully received.

Re: Packet loss, poor speed

It looks like an issue on the Virgin network is occurring in your area, if its still an issue in the morning I would recommend calling customer service at 8am when lines open, 0345 454 1111.

Alternatively hang on here and a staff member will be along to check issue out.

If I've helped let me know 🙂

I give 'my' experience to help where possible.
