My partner works from home and relies on the internet connection. It's been dropping recently so much that managers have started to notice. We haven't had any updated equipment for 8 years. It's only just started to drop. We've reset and rebooted.
Went through a ridiculously long wait for online help the the other day. An engineer was supposed to call within 4 hours. They didn't!!!
Do we need an engineer? Can we not just have an up to date hub?
It's causing real issues, we may have to change providers if it doesn't improve.
Can anyone advise?

Please check if any local issues and post some stats.
Check with Area faults on 0800 561 0061 If you have a VM landline 150 this goes down to post code level. You could also try the web page status, but this is not recommended as it only covers issues that affect a very large number of customers.
How to get stats from a VM hub (no need to logon to the hub)
Open a web browser and go to 192.168.0.1 router mode or 192.168.100.1 modem mode

Thanks for your post, welcome back to the Community Forums.
Sorry to hear you and your partner have been affected by some broadband issues recently. I've had a look and can see that your power levels are out of spec, so we will need to schedule in an engineer appointment to get them ironed out.
I've send you over a private message so I can take some details and look into this for you.
Please look out for my message over at the purple envelope.
