Just joined 500mb - but nowhere near...

Hey guys, 

 

Just got virgin & went for the top packages but not even getting close to the 500mb (avg 526mb) speeds advertised. Screenshot_20190907-160947.jpg

your moaning at 200-300 over wireless to a mobile device. First world problems

It's the same speed I get on Windows - mobile is irrelevant here 🙂

Wireless. 

I'm now using my own router with the hub in modem only mode. 

 

Ive managed to see speed tests as high as 475mb on wireless now.

I've noticed its still very fluctuated though on Virgin, at slower speeds on plusnet - it was always pretty consistent. 

475 can suddenly be 250 within 1min to the next.

 

Glad to be getting much better wireless speeds with a diff router. 💪

Re: Just joined 500mb - but nowhere near...

so you still haven't checked the speeds wired.

On Plusnet was you getting 400mbps? If you were getting less then 100mbps then you still can't prove its not a fireless fault where you are. if you can get 200mbps or faster at all times then a Plusnet 80mbps was no problem. If PlusNet was 500 you might have seen the same problem. You can't compare the 2 and you can't test your true speeds using wireless
