So, that stuff about Virgin being worst for jitter and latency at peak... wink

Just tried the same on my connection:

--- www.bbc.net.uk ping statistics ---
13 packets transmitted, 13 received, 0% packet loss, time 12016ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 10.098/10.665/11.548/0.395 ms


So not all PN connections that are showing such jitter.

No, but it is just pot luck if you happen to be on a endpoint that isn't as saturated as some of them clearly are, Try dropping PPPOE session a few times in particular in between 9:30 -10pm and check that again,
Although apart from a terrible Sunday night peak time, things according to the ping monitors haven't been as bad as they where last week, but we are only on Tuesday and tonight isn't over yet

Ditto:

10 packets transmitted, 10 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 12.495/14.161/15.250/0.844 ms

I've also tried a few gateways. Currently on pcl-bng03.

No FTTC here just ADSL1 from a 20CN exchange a long way away, stable sync speed just under 4Meg and throughput is OK for the times of day I am using the connection.

Recent Sunday nights have shown a spike in traffic around the time TopGear used to be on from a couple of peering charts - so that combined with the big boost in traffic from tablets, chromecasts, phones since Christmas are another factor.

But if a site needs images or javascript responses from another site, things start to go badly wrong. for example: the bbc uses chartbeat in its pages.

Not really noticed anything then again I've been playing about with my routing over the last couple of days because I decided to get the VM line I was originally using as a backup bumped to 152M.

Also my PlusNet is on a Business tariff so not sure if that makes a difference, most traffic types are weighted the same by their QOS but a couple of things are slightly higher priority than residential.
