This is getting ridiculous. Paying for 100mbps, latest speed test says I'm getting 3.2. No wonder the streaming on the Fire Stick keeps buffering. Virgin site says there's no problems in the area. What's going on? I know its compromised by using wireless rather than ethernet, but the router is in the same room as the TV, about 6ft away in fact and about the same distance from the laptop I have done the speed tests on. This isn't good enough.
Hey. U are lucky not but you are. I pay for vivid 200 and im getting 0.6 mb for at least the last 2 going on 3 days now. They are totally loosing the plot. I am use my mobile wireless internet thats 9. Sumat. So I do feel for you. Lets hope its sorted soon because id rather pay for a lesser connection speed and it be more reliable. Hope your connection is sorted soon x
Well its been a while. Still struggling with the wifi, but today I did a couple of tests, one with ethernet cable and one with wifi. Speeds are showing as much better bit I'm still not getting the coverage that I have had in the past. I've tried moving the router to various places in the room to no avail. I've turned off every gadget that uses WIFI, except for essentials like the mobile phones, although I shouldn't have to go to that extreme as its always worked well before. Streaming from my amazon fire stick on the lounge tv is patchy at best - router is in the lounge. Upstairs I have a nowtv box connected to the bedroom tv and cannot get bbc iplayer or any of the main tv catch up services to stream without buffering to the point where it says there's a problem, check your internet. Using a nexus tablet upstairs with youtube is now impossible to use, and very slow to load any web pages. Have I done something to damage my hub, afffecting the range that I'm getting indoors?
