Bad Internet Connection

Postby Etchyzz » 2010-10-05 10:46:11+00:00

Hi :)

Anybody who's seen me at a siege/tw knows that my connection sucks monkey balls!

Engineer number two visited the house today, he said that it's a throughput problem and a hot VP (virtual path) has been detected. He's escalated my case to the complex faults department and they will deal with it further. I hope it'll be fixed soon but I have a sneaky feeling that an engineer will be needed to fix the problem and that it won't happen anytime soon.

So far I've had three months of this crap!

I don't suppose anybody knows if there's anything I can do about a hot VP?

Thanks :)

Im not an expert but from a search I did on google after asking some technicians here at work, it seems that it's all in the IP's hands. Hot VP means that u get the minimum of bandwidth transfered back and forth, to put it plainly, and this results in major slowdowns periodically.

Some people suggest u should just wait for the IP to solve this somehow. Others also suggest that an upgrade to a higher, faster connection even from the same IP could also solve ur problem.

This is the link I tracked down: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/btsupp ... p-hot.html

Also the fact of the matter is that after the so called hardware upgrade they did in L2 many many people suffer from this. Including me that Im running it on a very clean system and had no such problems prior to the upgrade. Maybe this has also sth to do with the lagging. Cos there are times that I literally cannot play due to major spikes and it sucks even on low res!
