Well for about 2 weeks I have had very intermittent speed at peak times, as soon as 12am comes I get 100mb download, and my upload is solid at 6mb ALL day. Peak times and I get from 1.2mb to 35mb sometimes to low to stream Netflix or Amazon HD
For once I don't believe I have downloaded too much or streamed too much!
Saturday night I spoke to customer service and got passed about 3 times and each time no one had a clue, I was being told to reset the router to default, restart the PC in safe mode!
When I did speak to technical support I was told I they were going to refresh my account and that would fix my problems, I said 100% that will fix the issue? Yes that will fix the issue.
WELL GUESS WHAT?!
It did not fix the slow speed on sunday at peak time and come 12.15am I had 92mb download speed!
What gives? Why am I paying for 100mb to only receive 100mb out of peak hours?
Slow speeds at peak times (typically 4pm-11pm weekdays and weekends) but full speed at off peak times is normally a symptom of high utilisation/contention in your area.
Somebody from the VM forum team should be along in a few days (up to a week) to check your connection and can confirm if there is a known issue with your segment of the network. If that is the case they should provide a fault reference and pass your details onto another team who should inform you about your credit options for the lack of service via a PM. They should also be able to provide a review date for the fault. Note that it is a review date not an expected fix date and some customers affected by this kind of issue have been waiting over a year for a fix.

Sorry to hear you're getting poor speeds, I've just checked your connection and can see no issues from here. Your power levels, SNR and area contention all look healthy. How are you connecting to the hub? If wireless it's likely down to wireless interference. Could you try a wired connection and let us know if this improves things?
I connect wirelessly and wired, I have a gigabit switch and cables for wired connections.
During none peak time I get what I pay for, but as soon as peak hours hit the download speed drops, but never the upload. I have a friend in the same area and he is getting the same, in fact you have supplied him a new as the outsourced tech support said his router was faulty router and its still the same for him.
One of your techs did change his IP address to a different range ans he did get the speed he was paying for,,,,,,,,
