Things seem to have resolved themselves via some mysterious means.
FTP transfers are holding steady at 2.6MB/s.
Speed tests are coming back how I'd expect them to be.
Transfers aren't dropping off over the course of a minute.
Spammed a load of speedtests since Monday to keep an eye on my speed, and it seems to be back to what I have come to expect from VM.
Needless to say, I'm not quite so **bleep** off now! If this keeps up. Hopefully it stays like this.
It seems like this has recently hit me too. I'm on the Gaming 200 package which is like £45/month, so I'm none too happy!
Getting terrible upload speeds (10.5 KiB/s) systematically. I've tried several different FTP servers, Gmail -- all the same.
Tried rebooting my Hub, didn't make any difference. I'm connected via Ethernet, so it's not the Wifi. Tried a different PC, application, etc.
Various speed test website confirm the abysmal upload rate (but hey, download's pretty good...)
This is what my Hub says on the Upstream status page:
Channel Frequency (Hz) | Power (dBmV) | Symbol Rate (ksps) | Modulation | Channel ID
Channel | Channel Type | T1 Timeouts | T2 Timeouts | T3 Timeouts | T4 Timeouts
We're moving house soon, guess I won't be going with Virgin in the new place.
