Every weekend, my speeds drop to beyond unacceptable levels for the price I'm paying for your service (service, that's laughable!)

Also, I've had to buy a router recently because your equipment will not allow 2 people in the same house on the same network play over xbox live together. Since router, when your end is working somewhat properly, I get around 90MBS down and 12MBS upload. But a stable connection over all - This is when your connection is working properly!
I've run tests online and get the same rubbish every time -
We're trying to sort it out for you
In about 10 minutes we should have finished, so take a break and then restart your equipment and check to see if all is well. If there's still a problem, please get in touch with us.
I'm sure getting in touch with you will be nothing but a palm off, redirected S**tfest of incompetence and trying to pass blame to something I'm doing wrong.
Worst thing I ever did was get the new equipment for the 200 VIVID speeds - should be VAGUE, better describes your service at the moment.
I can get BT fibre optic for a fraction of the price you lot are robbing me for at the moment, there's already a BT account in the house so moving it over should be pretty straight forward. Get this sorted or I will be leaving.
Aside from issues on your line, the 90Mbs that your own router gets is indicating a hardware limitation either with the router itself, the cable it connects with or the device testing when connected to it. 90Mbs is a common bottleneck for non gigabit equipment (which is needed to go above ~90Mbs)

Yea, I realise this and thought that was clear in my post. I don't mind not getting max speed if it mean my housemate and I can play over xbox live without one or both of us getting kicked off when we finally manage to join a game together.
In an ideal world, VM would update their equipment and/or supply a better hub for such activities. They boast about gaming better but this is hardly better. I had no trouble before the 200MBs upgrade and the SuperHub replacement the came with it.
If they just added a setting to open your NAT, I'm sure any router issues with the SuperHub would go away!
