SYNC Timing Synchronization failure

Hey Peeps,

I've been having some connection issues for the past few weeks in that the connection drops, it comes back up fairly quickly but as an online gamer, it's less than ideal. It's getting to the point that I'm thinking of changing to an another provider. I'd rather a more stable connection rather than fast download.

 

I've had a BQM running and the link to see it is

When running a diagnostic test through the VM website I do get a Network Issue;

Re: SYNC Timing Synchronization failure

You have a network problem known to VM - presumably they are working to fix it.

Try the “free & automated” Service Status number - 0800 561 0061 - which usually gives the most up to date info. and tells you of more local issues down to postcode level.

Or a VM person will advise on here but that can take a day or two.

Re: SYNC Timing Synchronization failure

I forgot to mention, I phoned the number before making the post, and according to the automated service, there is no issue in my area

Re: SYNC Timing Synchronization failure

Hi @Theo468,

 

Welcome back to our Community Forums! Thank you for your post and I'm sorry to hear that you've been experiencing some ongoing connection issues!

 

I was able to locate your account, and I can confirm that there are no area issues impacting your service.

 

However, I can see that your current Hub up-time is currently showing as 30 days. Please reboot your Hub and keep an eye on your connection over the next 24 hrs.

 

If you're still experiencing some issues after this, please let us know and we'll be more than happy to look into this for you.

 

Thanks! 🙂
