Packet Loss

Level 2



I've been experencing high packet loss and jitter for a while now and I'm hoping to find a slolution to this issue. I have tried to contact TPG support but am unable to contac them as they're always saying "currently serving other customers" with no queue to join.


Any assistance would be greatly apreciated.


Hi @dionnicky,


Welcome to the community!


There are multiple possible reason why you experience Packet Loss.

  1. Wireless Connection - In the event that affected device is connected via Wi-Fi, it could be a Wireless Interference Issue, we did an article that you may find helpful about this. Feel free to visit links below.

  2. Over utlized Bandwidth usage - It usually happens if your service is on NBN 12 which comes with 12Mbps download speed and a 1Mbps and there are multiple devices being used at the same time particularly Video Streaming or Online Gaming  (Phones, Tablets, Computers, TV's, Printers, Game Consoles etc) (Netflix,Disney) Gaming (Xbox, Switch). You may need to upgrade your NBN Plan.
