Slow broadband yet again

Hi, I have been a customer now in area 30 since mid November. I am paying for vivid 200 Internet yet am regularly getting speeds of only around 10mbps which is getting very frustrating. This is never fixed when resetting the equipment, and running a diagnosis through my Virgin media account shows no faults. I am checking the speeds with the suggested speedtest.net and I understand that at peak times it may drop. However, a drop to this speed seems rather extreme as I am receiving less than 10% of the speed I'm paying for and the time is nearly 10:30 pm which is hardly peak times.... Any help would be greatly received as I came here from sky for better Internet and am receiving a much worse service and don't know how to proceed from here

Thanks in advance

Re: Slow broadband yet again

10:30pm is pretty peak times Smiley Tongue

Most peak spikes happen around 9-11pm.

Peak times (out of holidays/weekends) are 'roughly' 3-midnight.

Re: Slow broadband yet again

Fair enough about the time, but to be dropping from around 180 mbps to as low as 7.2 seems a very heavy drop still. My service dropping to around 5% performance. This is a drop that has been experienced at times around 10 am too. The above example was the last one to occur and was therefore the given example. Maybe in future I should pay my bill during peak times and offer around 5% of that and see if anything changes 😁

Re: Slow broadband yet again

Hi Jesty87,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your connection.

 

I've checked the account and the network team has picked up an SNR issue in your area that is affecting your services. The technicians are working to get this sorted as soon as possible and have set a review date of 13th January.

 

Once the network fault has cleared, I'll run a diagnostic on your equipment to make sure everything is OK.

 

Speak soon Smiley Very Happy

 

Josh
