Router dropping out and slow speeds

Anyone else in SW london (KT4) having drop outs or slow internet? I have 100mbps and the router drops out a four or five times a day. The internet speed drops off too. I had 16 mbps earlier and my computer was plugged into the router. 

 

This has been going on over a month. Seems others in my area have the same problem and virgin has no reported problems.

Re: Router dropping out and slow speeds

As well as trying the “check service,” Area status webpage" (link at top right of this forum), also try the “free & automated” Service Status number - 0800 561 0061 - which usually tells you of more local issues down to postcode level. These may not be listed on the Area Status web page (Areas are not “Geographic” they are billing areas) as that usually only covers faults affecting 1000’s of customers) so phone may give you more info, but even that wont cover problems affecting just a few customers.

If nothing shows on there, try calling it in as a fault (on 150 VM line - or 0345 454 1111 others) and see what they say when they test your connection. If they say it’s a known fault, get a fault reference number – n.b.- the UK call centre is still picking up and calling at 08.00 (Mon-Sat) or 09.00 (Sun) gives the best chance of getting through quickly.
