New Virgin cable 100MB connection - how's it looking?


[link to this post]
 
Hey,

I'm not getting anywhere near 100MB so I was hoping to get some insight here. Does my graph look okay?

For a Virgin Media customer yes it is normal. There is something odd going on with latency on the Virgin network currently

Thanks for the reply. What should it look like ideally? Do you have examples of a "great", "fair" and "bad" connection?

Are you running any download software after 8am?, since those pings look a lot for what they are and your area depending on where you live could be over utilized .

No downloading during the day at all! The cheeky bit is that Virgin charges for calling their support line :/

Confirmed there is maintenance going on in my area (N8). Wish they'd told me up front :/

This has apparently been going on for a few weeks and will continue into November.
