Over the past week(since last Monday) my broadband connection has be woeful, seeing maximum speeds of 5-6Mbps. I'm paying for a 150Mbps package and I'm receiving 4% of my "promised" speeds. Frankly I find that unacceptable. It's struggling to load youtube videos without having to buffer every few seconds, content rich websites take upwards of 5 seconds to load.
This has all been done on a wired connection, I have also tried WiFi but it yields the same result so I have opted not to upload any speedtests using a wireless connection.
I have attached any relevant images below(speedtest, upstream, downstream, router status etc)

Thanks for the quick reply, nice to see I'm not alone with this. I guess I'll be calling 150 and quoting that fault reference number, the quality of service at the current time is nowhere near worth the amount I'm paying. I take it nobody has any clue when it'll be fixed then?
1 member said july after speaking to an engineer, I have one coming out 2moro so i'll let u know what he say's, but i had one out start of last week and just walked in and told me there's nothing he can do, its a core hub problem.
I'm on the phone with them right now and the person wont take the reference number and keeps saying the problem was fixed but i'm still getting 5mbit so hes rebooting my hub right now telling me it will be fixed, guess what? it isn't
Gosh July, if it takes that long there is no way I'll be sticking with Virgin Media. That would simply be unacceptable. Yes, please keep me updated on what the engineer says. I won't be calling 150 till tomorrow, so if I can get any more information that would be most helpful.
I'm all too familiar will help desks...well being unhelpful. They're just following a script with zero clue what the issue is and/or how to fix it. Hopefully I can get someone more sympathetic to my situation, I'd rather not have to argue over it. Bad enough that the broadband is terrible, I don't wish to have to deal with bad support reps as well.
Engineer out today, He explained the UBR is over utilized because they have added more areas around us (mullusk, brambles) so they need to upgrade the CMTS, They said they have been told it should be fixed by the 2nd week in May
