I was quite happy with the speeds of Virgin, I only signed up a couple of months ago on their 50Mb package.
However lately I have been watching catchup on the second laptop and find that almost every program stops every few minutes for about 3 seconds while it buffers.
I assumed in todays market with the speeds that we get that buffering would be a thing of the past. It does not matter what time of day it is, early hours, during the day or evenings, I still get the odd buffering during programs.
I have checked my speeds on various speed test programs and all come out above 50mb download.
I tend to watch ITV Catchup and 4OD.
Does anyone else have this kind of problem?
The buffering is not really bad, but it does happen for a few seconds every few minutes, sometimes it may go 15-20 minutes but mostly within 5 minutes it does it, I was wondering if it may be a common problem with catch-up tv?
It is connected via ethernet so it is not the wi-fi that is the problem.
