New Virgin Customer Speed

Hello,

I've just had the engineer round and set everything up for me. I'm paying for 200Mbps but speedtest tells me I'm getting about 73Mbps. Is this normal at first? Will it speed up over time?

 

Thanks,

Adam

Do a Speedtest in Safe Mode with Networking.

A 200Mb link speed won't be able to reach 200Mb download speed, although you should be able to get more than 80. maybe 150Mb at tops.

Re: New Virgin Customer Speed

That sounds vary close to the speed you would get on a Wireless N150 Card. 

Make and model of your computer? 
Its wireless Network Card Details?
