BQM graphs on Virgin


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys,

Can anyone provide me with a idea as to whether this is a good graph for a Virgin line? Looking at how to read the BQM stuff on the page is aimed at adsl connections, and nothing showing a good Virgin Media graph.

Thanks. At least my yellow bar is fairly consistent and matches yours. THanks for the swift reply.

This is what 100+ms Pings and sub 2Mb looks like on a 152Mb connection. Every night since November....

Yep, looks good, here's mine for comparison: Graph
I actually used to get <10ms in the green part when I was on 152 but since the move to Vivid 200 it never gets that low. I guess that means that the routing between myself and TBB's BQM device has changed.

I wouldn't worry about the blip at 11pm on your graph unless it happens a lot, probably just some work being carried out on the network or maybe you restarted your router/modem.

If mine was like that I'd be off to another provider. However it should also be noted that you can create this type of graph simply by using your own connection very heavily so it isn't always an indication of a problem at VM.

That was a reboot at my end. Needed doing as it's in modem mode and I was testing the effects on the graph.

This is mine, I'm on the 200Mb/s package and my graph has always looked like this.

Posted on cable Forum as well and a few others have had almost identical graphs. A bit of Netflix, Call of Duty and the odd Skype call doesn't do that on a 152Mb connection !!

I have posted to see if folks what BT Infinity or Sky are like in my area because I am very close to leaving VM

I did say 'very heavily', i.e. the total opposite to 'A bit of Netflix, Call of Duty and the odd Skype call'. I've had graphs like that when Fallout 4 was released, or the Witcher 3, or ...

But generally yes, if you aren't doing big downloads then it is probably congestion and you should get the -bleep- out of there.
