Not sure what I done wrong with last post, maybe bugged out when posting, anyway I noticed that things seemed a bit off today with internet/gaming compared to usual and upon checking TBB I noticed my usual latency that I have been at for several years now seems to have pretty much doubled and I have noticed some red indicators at the top as well, I am hoping this is a temporary aftermath of the issues VM had previously. I will post a live graph and a graph of today when the jump occurred.
One game in particular that had 14 hops on a traceroute the past few years has gone up to 24 with a lot more time outs along the path, it is Star Trek Online.
apologies for two posts but I waited over 10 minutes for first post to show up but it didn't so thought something was wrong, second post didn't go through either (this one) so I inquired in another thread if there was something up as you may see and I ended giving up after that.
Mate all over the UK this is happening - Everybody is complaining about random disconnections for a week. Look at their twitter feed over the past few days, same problem. Virgin Media are just saying "hey look at the connection service status page to see if in your area there is a problem" when this problem is national, these random intermitten connection drops.
If it were a national problem it would show on the Service Status webpage - in fact that's the only thing that page is good for!
It isn't showing there because it isnt a national problem.
