Upgraded from 50Mb to 100Mb about 2 weeks ago.
I've never seen 10Mb upload speed, although I managed 9Mb at around midnight - not much use I'm afraid.
I mostly see around 7Mb up.
My download speeds are very variable - anything from 65Mb - 103Mb.
I've pasted my speedtest.net results below - these were mostly using TranceFM and namisco as I am in London.I have also verified my speeds to private networks I have access to which are on 1Gb leased lines, so I'm sure about the speeds I'm seeing.
Far more irritatingly, I keep getting outages where I have no access to the internet for a few minutes at a time. As this never happened whilst I was on 50Mb, it can only be due to the upgrade. The engineer wouldn't let me keep my old VMG300 so either this is occurring due to the new "superhub" being no good, or maybe because the powerlevels are wrong for the new modem. It would be rather coincidental if it were happening due to network problems.
So which is it VM? Would you like to send me my VMG300 back so I can see if the problems go away, or would you like to spend weeks checking the network to try and find the problem?
For the record, this occurs on all my computer devices, both windows and linux, and also on various android devices regardless of whether they are wired or wireless. It is not a problem with any of my equipment, so the fault can only lie with the superhub or the VM network.
Please look into this, and tell me what you are going to do about it.

So what do I have to do to get a response from VM on this?
My speeds vary day to day, and I sometimes see good download speeds but they go from about 55-100Mb so hardly reliable.
I've never seen 10Mb upload yet - 9Mb is the max, but it is mostly less than that.
My computer is fine - I'm using a modern PC with GbE wired connection to the superhub. The problem rests entirely with the modem or the broadband provision itself.
Furthermore, the superhub loses its wireless connection requiring a reboot about once a week. It is a very long way from being a robust piece of kit.
Please give me back my VMG300. I never had to reset that.

the forum admin team are close to about 5 to 7 day wait for a reply, also they answer posted based on the oldest post in a thread.. so i would advise not posting anything further and DONT do any bumps that's worse.
Visit http://192.168.0.1 username admin password changeme if you then click on advanced settings, and choose connection and copy and paste all details can you also post the event log... you could re-use your own router and use modem mode - >How do I set up Modem Mode on my Super Hub?

stats requested below.
Also see my thinkbroadband graph:
It clearly shows terrible ping stats on the weekends, but better during the week. There seems to be some serious overutilisation going on there.
Please leave this thread for VM to reply to.

sorry, that ping graph should have been this one:

I have checked your local network segment and I can see that during peak hours your local UBR is suffering from high load. If this load continues we will pass this on to our network team for further investigation.
Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience caused.

That really isn't a particularly helpful response.
Since I upgraded to 100Mb, I have very rarely seen the full download speed and I have NEVER seen 10Mb upload.
On average I'd say I get about 70Mb down and 7Mb up - and that is an average so it is frequently much worse than that. Are you going to give me a 30% discount on my bill to compensate?
You have not stated how the load will be checked. Is it automated? Do you manually check periodically (assuming you remember to do so)? Do you rely solely on me to report continued poor speeds?How long does the poor speed have to persist for before you regard it as a problem worthy of investigation?
Given that it has been like this since I moved to 100Mb, I can't see any reason to believe it is going to get any better on its own, so I would appreciate it if you would launch an investigation now. Is this something you can do?

down to 28Mb/sec today.
It's getting worse.
Are you going to look into this now?
