Internet speed

Had VM installed on Saturday 22nd June. Broadband working but have run several speed tests and I seem to be getting in the region of 50 Mbps when I am on the m200 package.

Re: Internet speed

How are you testing. To test the speed properly it should be on a Cat5e/6 ethernet cabled device connected directly into the Hub which you have switched to modem mode. Test at speedtest.net to a virgin server.
See what that gets

Re: Internet speed

You cant rely on wifi speed tests - do it over ethernet cable first to see if you are getting full speed.

For example, my Macbook Air and iPhone7 both get 220mbps on my Vivid200 wifi connection - but only when I put them onto the 5GHz network. Sat in the same spot if I then flick them over to the 2.4GHz network, they max out at 70-80mbps - it's just the limitations of the technology!
