Speed problems past 6 months

I am getting low speed and paying for a 59 mbs. This has been ongoing for 6 months and when I called virgin they said that they were upgrading the servers and this would be completed by 30th Nov. I am getting 1 my download and 2 upload. In April I was gettin. 37.78 download and 5 + upload. This is ridiculous service. I try calling and it takes so long to get a response

Re: Speed problems past 6 months

Hi there Trusha,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community.

 

My apologies that you are having issues with the broadband speeds.

 

I've managed to locate your account and there appears to be a high peak time traffic fault in your area which is causing slow speeds. Our networks team are investigating the problem and are improving bandwidth and performance to help with this issue. The reference number is F003834674 and has a review date of 26th April 2017.

 

One of my colleagues will be in touch with more information.

Regards

Sam

Re: Speed problems past 6 months

Hi Sam

This is still an issue and it has been going on for a very long time now.

I have just down a speed test and the results are: download - 7.27 and upload 10

We should be getting about 50mbps download.

Please can you look into this ?

Thanks
Trusha

Re: Speed problems past 6 months

Hi Trusha,

I'd like into this further for you but am unable to locate your account or run any diagnostic checks on your service.

If you could please drop me PM with the name on the account and your post code I should be able to locate your details and investigate the slow speed issues for you.

Many thanks

Re: Speed problems past 6 months

Hi Trusha,

 

Thanks for getting back to us!

 

I've run diagnostics on your equipment and you levels are all looking healthy at the moment. There are also no network issues currently affecting your connection.

 

Are you still experiencing slow speeds? If so, are you testing the connection wired or wireless?

 

Speak soon

portmapperscan

Hi there

 

please can you help? I have now received two letters about portmapperscan and I called virgin media support to try and get port 111 blocked but I was on the phone for an hour and they didn’t understand.  They eventually said oh it’s fine which didn’t really convince me especially as I have now recovered another letter. I have logged onto my router and gone to port blocking and put port 111 in the start and end port number and 253 in the empty field at the IP address - will this make my home network secure?

Re: portmapperscan

Hi Trusha,

Thanks for your reply.

Our security team send out these letters if a potential security vulnerability has been detected on your network though they're not able to identify which device might be affected.

If you've not noted it so far there's some really helpful information on our security pages Open Portmapper Vulnerability.

Kind regards

Rose

Re: portmapperscan

Hi Rose

 

thanks for sending this. I have read it and followed the instructions but I have received another letter today. Please can you help? When I call the technical support line they don’t understand and now it’s really worrying me, I am trying to do something about it but not getting much support front virgin.  I have tried to block the port as I thought this might work but it hasn’t as I have received another letter. Please can you help?
