Understand that on vivid 200 gamer we are not managed down if download / upload too much, obviously appreciate there will be traffic shaping in place but this is just basic speed test.  

We also appear to have a mains powered amplifier / booster supplied by virgin media that connects to the incoming cable. 

House is wired up through a rack mounted gigabit netgear switch first time we've really had any issue other than the ongoing latency problem with the superhub 3.

Not looking very hopeful is it?  Looking at the number of complaints it seems that this is a national issue too.  i would have a lot more respect for Virgin Media if they were honest with us instead of the radio silence. They posted a card through the door the other day too from one of their sales guys asking to give them a call to arrange an appointment to discuss installing virgin media, can't even be bothered to check their records to see if someone has a connection before harassing them!  

Please VM try investing money in a rock solid infrastructure and the service will sell itself without a need for hard sell.  Trust me i'm an IT consultant, we provide rock solid IT services and a solid infrastructure, we aren't the cheapest but word of mouth is great sales tool.

Re: Poor Speeds in Evening - Vivid 200 Gamer

Hi there scania71,


Thanks for taking the time to post on the community.


I'm sorry to see that you are having issues with your broadband speeds.


I've run some tests on your connection, the line and hub have come back as fine which is good. The traffic on the network is running low and there are no faults reported.


Have you tried a speed test direct to the Hub without the switch connected to see if the speeds differ?


Let us know how you get on
