Terrible speeds, 6mbs paying for 200mbs, been like it for about a week :(

Really poor performance, seems to be getting worse by the day, are they throttling speeds because of everyone being at home? If so can VM throttle my bill until I'm back to full speed?

Irritated teenager shoutign at me because the PS4 patch is taking too long to download.

Hi,

 

It should only be on the Play Station Network that you are having that issue with.

It is as Sony are throttling their downloads in the UK and USA, possible some other countries but I know for definite they are in the UK and USA.

Nothing Virgin can do about it.

Fancy £50 off your bill? Ask me how and you might just get it!

It's not just the Playstation Network, the 6mbs is from speed tests run on my laptop, wired and wireless, same results. Every 10 minutes or so it will jump to 20Ish mbs then slow down again.Its definitely not 200mbs, that much I do know.

Terrible speeds today again, dropping as low as 4mbs then shooting to 80 and then back down to 12, pretty grim for an £87 quid a month package.

This is also complete crap. I've been playing for a few hours most evenings since lockdown began with no issues. Tonight, however, I can't get a speed over 24Mbps down and 700Kbps up. Whilst having a phone-tunnel conversation with friends who's connection is just fine. Sony aren't limiting me. Or they are picking on me alone.

And VM aren't throttling speeds.

And actually Sony were/are bandwidth controlling speeds on downloads..
