We've been experiencing very slow speed (2Mbps - 4Mbps download) in the evening. I know that there's nothing wrong with the modem + router + Wifi setup because I get full speed in the morning. This has been happening for about 1 - 2 weeks or so, perhaps longer but it definitely dropped significantly in the past couple of weeks.
There's no reported issues according to Virgin.
Anyone experiencing the same issue? We're on Area 21 - SW18/Wandsworth.
Slow speeds only at peak times (typically 4pm-11pm weekdays and weekends) is normally a symptom of high utilisation/contention in your area.
Somebody from the VM forum team should be along in a few days (up to a week) to check your connection and can confirm if there is a known issue with your segment of the network. If that is the case they should provide a fault reference and somebody should inform you about your credit options for the lack of service via a PM. They should also be able to provide a review date for the fault. Note that it is a review date not an expected fix date and some customers affected by this kind of issue have been waiting years for a fix.
