I have posted on here before about the speeds I get and I have recently taken out an O2 mobile phone contract so I qualify for Volt and my speed has been increased to 1gb.
I connected directly into my laptop using the USB-C port and an Ethernet adapter and Sam Knows.
The speeds I recorded were around 350mb and when I used Sam Knows via WiFi I was getting about 450mb so less than half of what is predicted/expected.
Virgin have told me my equipment is all working correctly and they have no issues with the fibre optic connection so why are my speeds so slow?
Has anyone else experienced similar issues or is there a known reason why my speeds are so way off?
You don;t say what type of laptop you have eg Windows, Chrome IOS, however the screenshot below how to check using Windows.
Press the Winows key and type in ethernet. Then select ethernet settings. Then change adapter settings. Double click Internet and it should show the speed as indicated on the left of the picture below.
If you need to change it change it, click Properties followed by Configure then scroll down as shown on the right and set the value to 1.0 Gbps Full Duplex.
