It's always good to turn off modems/routers every once in a while, It clears the cache on the devices.

 

So i say yeah, why not. But you are not gonna notice any changes on the electrical bill :P

no, that is where you are wrong. It is not a good idea at all to turn your modem or modem/router off every night as this fellow is asking as if it is on a none cable connection in the UK your line will have DLM implemented on it causing an increase in base ping and lowering of download speeds as the exchange thinks there is a fault on the line. As you are outside the UK you will not know this but your advice was wrong!

 

As he is on virgin which is cable fttp he is ok to do this. I left virgin because of their poor hardware and infrastructure 3 years ago and it was the best decision i have ever made!
