The yellow area reflects the highest recorded latency in a 100 second period, for each pixel on the graph.

Its more the blue area that you need to worry about and while its high it is not too horrendous for a VM connection. Its far from perfect, but proof is in the game play really

thanks for the quick reply i do feel it affects my gameplay in the evening but i wasnt sure if i was just using my connection as an excuse for being [censored] lol another question im finding it really difficult to get into my virgin modem 192.168.100.1 most of the time its just not connecting, could this be a faulty modem or is this normal

thanks
Craig

Unlikely to be the modem, but a mixture of congestion on link that leaves Virgin Media and heads to tbb, which would affect other services using that link, and the rise in local congestion that appears to be affecting VM customers.
