Dropouts and slow spped

Hi

Over the last few weeks I have experienced a major drop out and since then poor speed. I used to get >=100 MBps bit now struggle to get 40 mbps. I have restarted my router recently and is still only showing 30 Mbps

i am in the Stevenage area so wondered if anyone else experiencing similar issues please?

thanks

kevin

Re: Dropouts and slow spped

I’m having similar issues since being sent the new Hub. When I installed it I got speed of over 200mbps. One week later I struggle to get over 20-40mb and connection keeps dropping out.

 Thank you Virgin for removing the feature to run a test against the new hub as I now have no way to flag poor service without calling and spending an eternity on hold.

Mine has been fine when I had the new router a few months back getting ~100 Mbps bit since a major outage a week or so ago, it down to 30-40Mbps. Will test later with Ethernet cable. If it’s bad will sit on queue to Virgin.

Re: Dropouts and slow spped

I tested last night using an Ethernet cable to my laptop and ran a speed test and it showed 100Mbps. I also did a Wi-fi speed test using laptop and came back with 60-70’Mbps. I then did a speed test on my iPhone and again it shows 30-40Nbps. Seems issue is with my iPhone connection and that was stood by the router. I did try bad enable the 5G connection as the Virgin app seems to stare 2.4G only. 

any thoughts anyone please?

Re: Dropouts and slow spped

What laptop model do you have as it might only have a 100Mb NIC by wire.

Re: Dropouts and slow spped

It’s a B&O ELITEBOOK but gave me the correct speed both on Ethernet and also wi-Fi. Something has to have changed on my iPhone

Re: Dropouts and slow spped

On the laptop label there will be a model number eg BO8910AB.

What is it on yours ?
