so while using the standard vm 2ac hub i get massive issues with latency in upload,now i use my hub in modem mode but without QoS its still massively bad as i stated its over half second latency also its not stable and jumps around also from 30ms to over 555ms sometimes over that.
now ive been with VM for over 7 years and now contemplating leaving as its now starting to affect gaming something i do regularly and what i got VM for in the first place.
now ive never been happy with the service since ive had it but tbh there wasn't much better out there however i feel there is now and imho bt at 30mb/s stable would be much better then 220mb/s unstable. add to the im paying over 50 quid pm compered to BTs 30 quid pm.
first upload buffer bloat was max 90ms second was 199ms,now that jumps all over from 10ms to 100ms back to 20ms up and down constantly.
The DSLReports Speed Test is measuring Buffer Bloat when your connection is fully utilised, i.e. deliberately exposing the weakness of most (modem/)routers. Unless you have a better quality router with QoS, or even better SQM (Smart Queue Management), generic/ISP routers will not do well at this test as they are not prioritising any packets of data, but just trying to send them as soon as they receive them.
Unless you are regularly maxing out your upstream bandwidth this shouldn't be a major concern, although as you're using QoS on your Nighthawk to prioritise upstream data at the moment I would have thought you'd got this covered anyway.

I must be missing something here...you have a router with QoS and that show mostly fine on (might need to lower the limits) but you seem to think you don't need it on?
Their is a big problem with upstream buffering which is why you need QoS to limit it under your upload speed but this only works if you get that upload speed as if the CMTS is under load your upload speed will be less and you buffer in the modem.
