My broadband contract should ensure a speed "up to" 100mbps. Virgin marketing strategists do not claim that the speed is always going to be equal to 100Mbps. Therefore, what does "up to" really mean?
I have been running tests on my connection since October, every night and day. The maximum connection speed was 54Mbps. Clearly way inferior to the meaning of "up to" 100Mbps. My interpretation of "up to" is a value between 60- 90 with occasional peaks of 100Mbps.
I assume that in order to get a solid 100Mbps speed I should sign up for a 200Mbps contract. Am i correct? If so, this is not what i expected. Any suggestion?
And if you are not getting full speeds to start with, upgrading won't change it. All upgrading does is change a profile letting your hub know it is allowed more max bandwidth but if you are not reaching current max, it's unlikely you will get a change.

Thanks for following Shafreya's advice regarding testing out a wired speed. At least we know that we can taker a deeper look at wireless. Firstly your WLAN card should be dual (or multi) stream and AC standard. Next you'll need to ensure you find the optimal wireless settings to ensure a strong signal.
