Both the lines (in 2 diff towns 80 miles apart ) were perfect until the last week.

Something is up.

indeed, they removed STM... I have to admit whilst it was slightly annoying when it was on you knew you would get something stable, now DL speeds and ping graphs are all over the place.

Luckily my area has dealt very well with the changes.

We haven't even required 8 downstream channels yet, still on 6 and my BQM's tend to have a lower ping than most other I see around the UK on Virgin.

Might go back up to 120/152 soon too!

In reply to a post by BuckleZ:
Since this started, On 2 lines in N.Ireland (One in Londonderry and one in Belfast), I have noticed terrible packetloss... below is a snapshot of the worst. Before March there was never an issue with any packet loss at all.

That, my friend, is the dreaded over-utilisation raising its ugly head...

I had very similar problems for about 6 months during 2011 which caused me to leave Virgin and go back to ADSL (a measly 3mbps) as no FTTC in my area. I did, however, rejoin Virgin a little over a year ago as the problems had been resolved in my area. Virgin are able to alleviate such problems on-the-fly as reroute traffic/customers through different nodes and am curious to know whether the problems you noted in the 'Virgin Belfast' TBB BQM Graph have disappeared, as it seems to show that the problem disappeared at around 1450hrs on Saturday, 8th March 2014?

I am definitely going to get on to Virgin as I have just passed the first anniversary and am on 60/3mbps at the moment and see that a 'neighbour' could get 152mbps if ordering today.

In reply to a post by Yves:
You are right. Next door can get it as a new customer. I will telephone tomorrow and persist.


Yves, how did you get on, did you give Virgin a call?

As an aside, here is my current TBB BQM Graph:

i had a very similar problem to this......

It turned out there was a SNR issue in the area and as soon as that was fixed my connection returned to norman.
