Hi, We've recently moved and just had a "full house package" installed with 200mbps Internet. The internet has never really felt that fast, so I've done a speed check on my mobile, laptop and on the PS4 / Xbox1. Last night I couldn't get above 12mbps, and this morning (early riser 😉) it's up to 30mbps, which is ok I suppose but definitely isn't near the "upto" 200mbps that I'm going to be paying for. The area code is 14 on my account. Will the speed increase over time? Or will I be plagued with the slower speed despite paying for the faster option?
just to save you having to wait a week or so for a VM rep to ask you to do this, you might want to do a speed test on a PC/laptop that is wired to your router.
Given the fact that there are already quite a few reports of over utilisation type issues for area 14, I'd guess that, wired or otherwise, your speeds will still be well below the ones advertised, but at least this should save you some waiting time to get a more substantive reply.
I would ring tech support if your speed is always at the 30Mbps mark day and night, waiting for a result here is like waiting for paint to dry, it can take over 1-2 weeks before any VM staff even look at it.
