Only Getting maximum of 95mb but paying for 200mb

I noticed that my internet connection is slowing down. I have done some speed tests and I am struggling to get 95mb. Sometimes I will just go over 100.

I have connected my laptop directly to the Virgin Hub with cat 6 cables. 

Is Virgin slowing users down hoping they won't notice.

Thanks for that Legacy1

So I am paying Virgin shed loads of money for a 200mb connection, you are now suggesting I go into modem mode. That means I would have to buy a router because the SH3 is not up to the job.

I used get maximum speed using SH3, so what has changed?

Exactly my thoughts too BossHogg !........... And don`t you love the way Virgin sell the Vivid 200 package with that Chaka Khan advert too? Smiley Wink

"Is Virgin slowing users down....."

My thoughts exactly. 
Loads of infrastructure gremlins lately in Beckenham. I think they've got some problems.
They've delayed my 200mb Vivid upgrade by a year, but interestingly not delayed my price hikes
