In reply to a post by GonePostal:
I'm waiting for a response from the CEO about leaving without penalty as I've still got about 9 months of an 18 month deal to run. I'll update when/if I get a response - and if a response isn't forthcoming we'll have to go through the whole formal complaint rigmarole.


Assuming he, and the complaints staff haven't already been sacked..

Also seeing high latency in the evening on my Origin FTTC connection. I am currently CGNAT'd so can't set up a BQM. I've asked for this to be removed.

This is the BQM for the CGNAT IP. I'm surprised by how quickly the latency builds up then disappears

Hope it goes well, my Origin (Vodafone resold) is similarly poor but just about bearable until the end of contract.


I'm directly with vf and see similar rubbish and variable performance too.

Vodafone Fibre (40/10), Draytek 130, DrayTek 2925, DrayTek AP-910c x 2
(Gone but not forgotten: AP-700, 2820n x 2, 2800vg, 2800, HG612)

Fairly classic shape and timing for congestion

Origin Broadband has now reverted to type on a line synced at 72Mbps.

TBB speedtest shows average 2.3Mbps single thread download:

It doesn't seem (until further notice) to be a good place to be. Maybe in time they will contract sufficient bandwidth, but building a good reputation takes ages. Losing it takes minutes. (Even before the power of the net - see Gerald Ratner)).

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - AAISP Home::1 80/20. 200GB. Sync 75808/13984Kbps @ 600m. BQMs - IPv4 & IPv6

Looks like you are seeing exactly the same latency pattern on your BQM as me. I've got an open call with them but i'm not hopeful.

Even when there isn't congestion the latency fluctuates quite a lot.

They also told me it will take 14 days to apply a static IP to my line!
