Vivid 200 only getting 89Mbps

I am on the Vivid 200Mbps service and rarely get above 100Mbps speeds at all times. Whether at peak or off peak I don't think I have seen a speed above 100Mbps, the reason I pay for 200Mbps is because of the amount of devices in our house that use the internet.

Some of you may think 'What are you complaining about' however I don't expect to buy a dozen eggs and get 6 in the box.

 

Can anyone from VM advise please Smiley Happy 

Thank You

Re: Vivid 200 only getting 89Mbps

What does a speed-test with one device hardwired to the HUB using CAT5E or better cable and a known gigabit NIC say?

If you've lots of devices connecting, obviously the bandwidth is shared between them so a speed-test under those circumstances WILL show a lower speed. And if you NIC is 10/100 instead of GB or your using the wrong cable (CAT5 or worse) , again a speed test will crap out about 95MBps even if WAN side is delivering 200Mbps

As above, 89Mbps sounds suspiciously like the limit of a 100Mbps NIC (taking into account overheads)
