Not getting 200mbps speed

Hi 

just moved house and had broadband installed about 5 days ago. Bundle we subscribed to has the the 200 vivid gamer. We're using a wired connection to an Xbox one and we aren't getting any where near the 200 speed - the best we have had today is around 50mbps although, since it's been installed it usually been around 30-35. Any idea how to improve this if it's something we can do from our side. Little be frustrated as we only left sky when we moved because we were getting the 30-35 from sky, but thought virgin could do better....

Any tips or suggestions would be welcome.

Re: Not getting 200mbps speed

Yes it would. Speed tests done on a console are notoriously unreliable.

Ideally you want a PC with a known gigabit NIC hardwired to the HUB with a CAT5E cable or better, to get an accurate speed

How are you testing the speed? On the Xbox?
