Only use it for a couple of hours at night roughly between 7and 10 for streaming a movie.
Reason for asking Netflix and amazon have started to buffer and ask if I want to continue

From other examples we have seen of VM graphs that looks pretty much normal - VM and some of their routers are much more likely to produce those yellow spikes than BT based FTTC/P.

Compared to some other VM BQM results yours looks fairly reasonable.

Looks good for cable, speed test results from http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest may be more informative towards issues with video buffering e.g. if speeds are up and down a fair bit then suggests over the course of a film hitting a buffer issue is likely
