Consistently getting only 10-15MB on 150MB package?

Moved home a couple of months back; brought my 150MB Virgin package with me.  Recently upgraded to a SuperHub 3.  Regrettably never run a Speedtest with a result over 15MB, and frequently down around 9-10MB.  Spent more time on tech support than I care to report, but no results.  Any way to identify and resolve the issue myself?!  Huge thanks in advance

Re: Consistently getting only 10-15MB on 150MB package?

Are you using a wired Ethernet connection to the VM hub or a wireless connection? Wireless is easily disrupted by a number of external factors, so a wired test is the best way to get a true picture of what speed your line is able to achieve. It also helps to pinpoint if the issue is with the wireless or your line.

Are you seeing slow speeds all day or only at peak times (typically 4pm-11pm weekdays and weekends)? Some areas are suffering with over utilisation, which results in very slow speeds at peak times but full speed at off peak times.

If wired off peak speeds are slow then some hub stats might help. Go to http://192.168.100.1/ to get the VM hub GUI. Don't login but instead click on Router Status which is either a button in the top right of the screen or a text link at the bottom of the screen depending on which hub you have. Click on the Downstream, Upstream and Network Log sections and copy & paste the figures from those screens and post them here, don't worry about the formatting or you can post screen shots if that is easier.

The community can have a look for you and see if anything in the figures looks wrong and advise accordingly. Or you can wait for the VM staff to pick up this thread (can take up to a week) and run checks on your line.
