I have the same on my graph as well have no idea what has caused it either, connection is still up and running so it didn't cause a drop, looks all ok now though

The packet loss can be seen on TBB graphs on the Virgin Network so it looks to be a TBB Monitor issue - nothing to worry about though as it seems to be working fine now Smiley

Thanks jelv. There really are some very sad people in the world. Do they get a thrill out of something like this? They must live very shallow lives.
