Inconsistant Download Speeds in Area 30.

Inconsistant Download Speeds in Area 30.

Is Area 20 currently suffering from a lot of congestion; my broadband connection keeps on achieving infrequent download speeds dropping to as low as seven Mb/s (when I am paying for two hundred Mb/s), but the Upload speeds are absolutely fine?

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Hi

I'm in Area 30 and my speeds have been all over the place for a few months. Are you on a wired connection? Which Hub are you using?

Same here. Worth logging your Speed test results and Router Stats and posting here. Remember to leave out your WAN IP address and any other private information.

Is there any maintenance going on in our area at this very moment?

I'm told not. Check the Virgin Media Service Status page whilst logged in.

How odd? There isn't any work on Virgin Broadband currently taking place in my area.

Re: Inconsistant Download Speeds in Area 30.

How are you connecting wired or wirelessly?

If wireless, try wired directly to the hub with a Cat 5e cable or better with a device equiped with a gigabit ethernet network card.

Re: Inconsistant Download Speeds in Area 30.

I really need this to be sorted out within the next week; without 200 Mb/s, when I am downloading a game and playing another at the same time, my Ping increases substantially to over five hundres from around thirty five.
