I've had an ongoing issue with regular latency spikes for months. I've included a BQM below showing the issue. For the time being I am unable to provide hub stats, apologies.
Recently, this stopped happening briefly as seen from the screenshot on the 14th of April below:
However, now the latency spikes are back, and for some reason there is now a problem with service between about 19:45pm and 22:00pm. Below are some consecutive days in late April.
Sadly, some days even look like this:
While I'm aware of, and expect, the latency spikes at this point, the graphs you see here are absolutely not normal.
This is obviously not a usable service, and I would like the problem to be resolved as soon as possible.

Thanks for your reply, I've read through some of that thread and the original post on thinkbroadband. Very disappointing. Time to play the waiting game I suppose.

Thanks for your reply.
Service came back online on the 7th as predicted. I've recently learned that the latency spikes are from hourly SamKnows speed tests on the Hub4 and are nothing to worry about. The service was fine for the two days after it came back, but since then there's been some minor but consistent packet loss the last two days.
Here is the graph just after the connection came back:
And here is the graph in the last day:
You may have to enlarge the image, but at the top there's small amounts of packet loss fairly often.
I know this doesn't seem like much, but its often noticeable when playing games.
What are my options to resolve this?

We can look at getting someone out to check all connections eternally and internally if you like?

If the packet loss is that small might be hard to find.
I guess you could run a ping -t to 126.96.36.199 you can press CTRL + pause to see if it dropped any

Thanks for getting back to me. The connection has been behaving itself recently, I was waiting to see if there would be more issues before replying to your colleague, but so far all good. For now I don't think further action is necessary.
