Supposed to get 200mb

Virgin have just put in new kit all over our estate, I have signed up to 200 mb but only getting a max speed when wired of about 80 mb, very disappointed as the engineer who fitted it told me some people were getting 218 mb, don't really want to cancel as it's the best speed by far round where I live, would really like some tests done

Does the laptop your testing have a gigabit network card?  are you using speedtest.net?

Hi yes it does have a gigabit card in it ,tested again this morning and it's happily sitting at 200mb using Speedtest.net using a cable however the wireless Speedtest is a different story 30 mb on my iPhone stood next to the router, very strange

Wireless is limited by each devices capabilities + your wireless environment.
