Nottingham area. Was getting a good speed but now I am getting 0.33mps. Called vigin on Thursday said was a Fault and would be fixed on 03/11/2016 called on Friday for an update as fault is not showing on service page and told its due to amount of people in my area! I'm sorry but paying for top Internet and getting such a ridiculous speed. They still haven't told me what the fault is and when they will fix it
Fault: Over utilization (too many people signed up to VM services around you)
Fix time: usually around 1-2 years. Do not listen to any fix date you are given, this is just what their scripts say. The dates are purely review dates, and usually get bumped down the line 3-4 months when the next one is reached until the 1-2 year mark when hopefully they get round to doing something big to fix it.
