Recently Upgraded to VIVID 200mb

Hi,

I've had a look at this page: "http://store.virginmedia.com/discover/broadband/explore/fast-wireless.html" for the advertised speeds and have tested speed via speedtest.net.

I've tried this at various times of the day over the last 2 weeks but have yet to break 100mb on the download.

My account clearly states under broadband: Vivid 200 Optical Fibre.

Can a VM representative please check this for me - Many thanks.

Regards,

Patrick.

Hi,

I've just tested again via wired PC.
93.43 mbps download.
12.34 mbps upload.

Wireless - iphone 6
114.41 mbps download
12.34 mbps upload


I'd say your PC has a 10/100 mb ethernet card you need a 1 GB card

What speed are you getting?
Testing wired or wirelessly?
