Customers awaiting a firmware update from Virgin Media UK to fix the throttling of broadband speeds on IPv4 internet traffic – specifically when data packets carry Protocol 41 (i.e. the IPv6 encapsulation / tunnel protocol) – may be unhappy to learn that there’s still no ETA, despite the issue being acknowledged 8 weeks ago.

Broadband ISP Virgin Media is finally moving to develop a fix for a long-running, albeit quite technically niche problem, which severely throttles IPv4 internet traffic – often reducing download speeds to under 20Mbps – when the data packets carry Protocol 41 (i.e. the IPv6 encapsulation / tunnel protocol).

Good news for customers of Sky Broadband, specifically those who previously liked to use their own third-party Domain Name System (DNS) settings before the UK ISP broke that ability when they introduced early support for the Sky Buddy App in April 2019 (here).

A number of data (mobile broadband) connected users on Three UK’s 4G mobile network have now reported that their connection has been assigned an IPv6 internet address, as well as the usual IPv4.
