Virgin media upload issue again

Tuning in


I'm again experiencing regular upload issues when I try to stream... I tried about 4pm yesterday and was getting 0.1Mbps upload and the same again tonight at about 5.30pm.  Is this a problem with my system or Virgin?  This is about the third time I've had to report this and it's getting a bit irritating!  If anyone could suggest a suitable course of action it would be greatly appreciated!

Kind Regards

What are you trying to stream and on what devices?  Also are the issues only evident on wifi connections or do you see them at the same times on devices connected on ethernet cables? If you don't know, can you check to help diagnose whether it is just a wifi issue or it could be network connection/Hub related?


I do not work for VM. My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired, 2 on WiFi) Hub5 in modem mode with Apple Airport Extreme Router +2 Airport Express's & TP-Link Archer C64 WAP. On Volt 350Mbps, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.

Hi John 

I'm only streaming on my PC. I stream regularly to Twitch and have done so for over 3 years (all on Virgin Media).  I'm hardwired via Ethernet directly to the hub. I only have my PC and Laptop connected to the hub via ethernet, I don't use wireless connection (apart from my phone, but that's mainly on 4g).  I don't use the phone or laptop while streaming, so I don't think it's a wireless issue.

Many Thanks



At the time when you see an "0.1Mbps upload to Twitch" check what a Realspeed test show for the speed at the Hub. 

If real speed also shows an exceedingly low upload it is a service issue, if not it is a Twitch issue.

Once the test begins click on: Run full test to see the full results with Upload / Jitter / Packet loss.


Hi Client

Thank you! That sounds possible!  Will give that a try next time I have the issue - though I have been using a speed test, but will use the link you suggested! 

Many Thanks

Thanks for the update on this TinyTim78,

Just regarding this you've stated the next time you have the issue, is the service running fine for you now?



Hi Kain

I've streamed both yesterday and today without any problems.  However, it normally tends to happen midweek.  I'll stream again tomorrow and Wednesday and if it happens again I'll check using the link provided by Client.  I'll also reply on here to let you know the results of that test! Many Thanks!

First time in ages, but I've had the same issue again.

Realspeed taken at 17:49 tonight : 


Any ideas what we can try / what the problem might be?

Many Thanks in advance!

Kind Regards
