I have never used virgin, but i have heard bad things with them when it comes to gaming. Dropped connections, traffic shaping ETC...

It is your isp screwing you over. Virgin is known to be bad to use with online gaming because they use traffice shaping to try and controll bit torrenting on their network and illeagal file sharing which happens to use UDP packets which is the same this game uses for communication. So any isp that traffic shapes, throttles udp packet transmission will have problems like this.
