VirginMedia Vivid 200 Issues

Today after a long time waiting we have finally got our Vivid 200 Installed.

Since activation this morning our speeds have been fluctuating hugely.

Upload has been a solid 12mbps as advertised all day. However, download speeds have been very troublesome.

The initial test showed 178mbps. However, since then it has been hovering around 50mbps.

I have ran tests on an iphone 6s practically touching the router which achieved 178mbps. Repeating the test has only yielded scores around 50mbps.

On a wired connection i am seeing speeds of around 80mbps which is still less than half of the advertised speed.

Is this to be expected in the first few days of activation or is this some kind of fault.

I have ran some diagnosis and haven't witnessed packet loss or anything of that nature.

Yes it is it's an MSI gamin5 motherboard with Gigabit Lan.

Just ran a test at 2AM and got 207mbps download on my iphone 6s. 

Leads me to believe there is some kind of congestion in the day which is crippling my download speed.
