Speed in Bristol south

Why am I paying for speeds of uptown 100 mbps and down as slow as 1.2 mbps this evening, not fit for purpose, but is anyone any better?

The only time of day I get anything above 50 mbps is a weekday morning, as the day goes on the speeds get progressively worse, this isn't  a one off been happening for months now.

If I do a service status check Virgin tell me everything is working as it should lol

Re: Speed in Bristol south

You're still putting up with it?

Is anyone better? Yes, I am. The service from Virgin in my area is dreadful, highly oversubscribed, speeds similar to yours.

FTTC was available so I jumped ship, got infinity one. It's up to 52Mb. Off peak I get that, peak same.

Even if FTTC wasn't available my speeds would be far better with another provider than I was getting from Virgin.

Put your details in here and see what you can get.

Yes Dave still putting up with crap speeds after all this time............................

      I did the check as you recommended but not a tech head , is it just showing I can get a reasonable BT connection ? What is  FTTC, is it just fibre to us lay men?  Cheers Pete

Re: Speed in Bristol south

I've no idea what you can get but that will tell you what's available from Openreach. BT, TalkTalk etc.

FTTC is fibre to the cabinet, BT market it as infinity, not sure what the others call it.

When you enter your details it will show you what's available and what speeds you can get.

VDSL is FTTC. ADSL2+ is standard broadband.

Re: Speed in Bristol south

What part of Bristol? (first part of postcode)

AFAIK Keynsham is overutlised at the moment, unless it has been fixed recently.

Foe a sanity check, posting some basic diagnostic info may help.

Navigate to the hub's GUI using http://192.168.100.1
Don't log in, click the Router Status button
Copy \ Paste the Downstream, Upstream, and Network Logs.

Don't worry about the formatting, but do obscure personal information like your WAN IP address.
