Broadband unusable - Speed - Latency- ping drops

Hello,

 

Looking for something to be resolved regarding my broadband. 

 

It is quite simply awful, it's impossible to even watch catch up TV, constantly buffering every 4 seconds or won't even load at all. 

Not able to play online games with the shocking latency being experienced. Running a constant ping to google it spikes from 30ms to 1000ms and then times out and repeat every 20 seconds. 

 

Running a traceroute to pingbox1.thinkbroadband.com as suggested on another topic has already been done for you to see the results below along with a ping to google.co.uk.

This has been an awful experience for over a month now. I've called and logged a call and you've reset the line but it's had an adverse effect and the broadband is even worse than it was before you did that.

Re: Broadband unusable - Speed - Latency- ping drops

Hi there, 

 

I've just been having a look into this. Diagnostics don't detect any faults or pick up on any issues. Can I just check if you've been connected over WiFi or been using a wired connection to the router when you've seen this happen?
