Latency with new WiFi Hotspot Feature


[link to this post]
 
Hi folks,

Recently I have been having latency issues, ranging from 141 to 649ms when pinging enta.net for example. I restarted my superhub, and got the same issue. I then signed into my account and ran a test, which advised me there is a problem running the test!

I wanted to rule out the new WiFi hotspot feature implemented recently, so I signed into my profile and went to the bottom of the page. There I found the opt out feature and I clicked:

*You want to opt out of Virgin Media WiFi. Customers who have opted out are not able to access our superfast WiFi on the move.

After clicking confirm I kid you not running the ping -t command my pings returned to normal instantly. I just thought I would advise anyone else to try this if they are having similar issues.

As I understand it it does not start until 1st of September.

I guess I am lucky because I don't have that option anywhere on my profile?
