I used to be able to Stream on Twitch with next to no frame drops on 6000kbps bitrate, however, since the 2nd March 2023 I now have over 65% dropped frames making my Stream Lag (kb/s is constantly bouncing up and down instead of being steady) with spikes & disconnects which is no good for viewers watching.
I had Virgin Media Gig1 Fibre Broadband installed back on the 14th Jan 2023 & enjoyed a stable Upload Speed between 50 - 52 Mbps. Now since 2nd March 2023, my speedtests show varying results each day between 24 - 39 Mbps.
My Connection / Upload speed feels inconsistent as my ping rises & lowers during gameplay.
It seems like there is noise or some interference occuring as the results are sporadic & often dip the longer a speed test goes on for, whereas before it would sit around 52Mbps solidly. The Download Speed seems unaffected but the Upload Speed is painfully different.
This is what I do for a living so it's affecting me greatly & I would like help solving this issue.
I have tried
-Changing Ethernet Cables
-Streaming using different Servers (London/France/Amsterdam)
-Streaming on another PC in House (To try to confirm that it's not a Hardware/Software/Network Card Issue)
-Streaming Downscale to 720p
-Streaming at 30fps
-If I stream at 3k Bitrate I have around 2-5% dropped frames but I still suffer infrequent spikes & disconnects.
This never used to happen so something has changed.
