Is this a Virgin Super Hub3? If so then it may just show that you have a superhub 3 as they tend to often show this sort of BQM.

...yea - it is indeed a Hub 3 from Virgin,

I'm on a 200md fibre connection which pretty much gives me speeds of just over 200mb!

I did ask this question on the VM forums also but they said to also ask here as well (they also stated that it could also simply be over utilization in my area.

The graphs look very familiar for Virgin connections. Are you seeing other issues or is it just the graph that is of potential concern?

I'm not seeing any issues if I am honest - just literally wondered about the charts.

Others with more knowledge may disagree but I believe what you are seeing is normal for Virgin and that unless you see problems then just chalk it up to Virgin oddities.

This is mine over-utilization BQM from yesterday (19/01):
https://www.thinkbroadband.com/broadband/monitoring/...

Your BQM does seem to indicate a level of over-utilization during the busy hours. Notice how the latency gets lower during 2am to 8am.
Given the spikes in the graph you might experience some lag during gaming.

In my case is more pronounced as I'm having a high level of packet loss. This makes VoIP unusable.
