Just signed up to 50mps on virgin fibre but has been useless since day 1
Get about 50mps in off peak times but ranging from 0.30-2.2 in peak times. Pretty unuseable and not had speeds so slow since I had dial up!!
I am in area 20 and have tried wired and wifi with same results, I am still in 14 days of cooling off should I just cancel and move on. Don't have much faith after reading posts on here.
I would personally end the contract, as you will be in for a long wait for it to be fixed, ring VM and ask for confirmation about over utilisation, they should of told you before signing you up: OFCOM: Codes of practice.
"Under the voluntary code of practice on broadband speeds, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) agree to give clear information on broadband speeds to consumers when they consider or buy a home broadband service, and to provide redress when speeds performance is poor. Ofcom and ISPs have agreed a revised code which came into effect on 1st October 2015."
Yes, yes, yes cancel, it will not get any better for some time, i am in area 20 it has been rubbish here for months unusable at times, luckily for me my 12 months is up tomorrow, good riddance virgin media rotten to the core.
High Utilisation by Virgin is a very common problem and can take years to resolve. I waited 2 and a half years and still hasn't even started any remedial work before I left. They will lie, offer you a small percentage off your bill for a month and other tricks to keep you, don't fall for it.
