Re: Speed

Virgin cable doesn’t use exchanges.

You need to speedtest with a wired device with a gigabit enabled card and a CAT5e or better cable.

The my rg11 goes back to the fDP iniber node goes back through the ubr in the exchange ie thhe Re: Speed

The rg11at my house goes back to the dp in the street. Then back to the fibre node . Then back to the ubr in the exchange where TV/ cable modem / Telco . Are fed from .

So it does go back to the exchange .

No.
Again, virgins cable doesn’t use exchanges. 

Anyway are these wired or wireless speeds you’re measuring?

The correct term with cable systems is the Headend.

Exchanges relate to telephone based systems.

The termination is a CMTS, although there is currently still POTS infrastructure for the Landline phone service

Virgin BB TV Landline. Freeview/Freesat HD, Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile. Cable customer since 1993

I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more

Headend is where the Telco and TV and modem are distributed. 

Modem via the cmts 

They do go back to the exchange / headend . Same thing depending on bt or virgin. 

Hard wired to the modem hub is 29mb . On a 500mb service with only the laptop connected. Ain't good
