Good spot - I tested this and i can watch 4k Youtube, Netflix etc without issue, but I can't download anything or play any games.
The Virgin site is not showing any network issues though, so I've no idea what's going on. I see no point in phoning their call center as it sounds like something more fundamental on Virgin's end and they will have no idea what I'm taking about. Anyone from Virgin about on here who can escalate?
Already down to 3 MB and dropping fast. Can someone from Virgin please comment? Your service status is showing no issues when there clearly is a big one. Again, it is not affecting streaming services such as Youtube and Netflix, just everything else.
Stormphoenix - you have jumped in to someone else's thread that has been sorted for them so VM responses may well be slower - always better to start your own - or have you done that already?
VM can take a few days to get to all threads on here - so....
Firstly, 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 gives the most up to date info. and 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.

Only jumped in on it as we have the exact same issue at the same time, I didn't want to have duplicate threads on the same thing. I can spin it off onto its own thread if needed? I checked the number and it didnt list any issues.
