Virgin Media has said it’s looking into fixing a situation where some of its customers are experiencing slow speeds for Netflix or unable to access it at all. […] The problem appeared to have started last week with customers bringing up the issue on boards.ie. Many reported shows being broadcast in 480p instead of 4k despite having 240Mb connections. When some used a VPN (Virtual Private Network, used as a way to access content from other countries), they found the speeds increased. Using other services with the same connection did not see a drop in speed. – Quinton O’Reilly, TheJournal.ie
