No Upload speed increase..

Dialled in


I'm in area 30 and my online account says I should have 104 upload but I'm still stuck at 52 and I have rebooted a few times.. So whats going on Virgin?


Thank you for taking the time to do this, so I don't have to.

VM 1st line "support" don't realise that if someone puts their Hub into modem mode often they have more appreciation of how networks work than the average punter and their concerns are genuine and well founded.

I have absolutely no idea what effect, if any, it ultimately has on their testing. I just want to speed things along while I'm here. Will probably make a last minute change and revert before I leave the country for my holiday and give this project up as a bad job, maybe reboot the modem remotely (by VPN) if there's news. Hopefully I won't disconnect myself in the process, as would rather the connection is running the whole time I'm away. Hopefully VM won't disconnect it either, perhaps trying to get me to install a new hub ...

Hi @locky1,

Thank you for getting back to me via private message to discuss further. The speed increases are being rolled out gradually, meaning some properties will have the increase whilst others won't.

You'll be notified when the increase will go ahead for you if it hasn't already.

What kind of time frame are we talking and are RFoG customers (like myself) actually going to get the increased upload?

I  received an email on the 2nd June 2023, saying "Enjoy an upload speed boost on us" and a month later I still haven't got it, how much longer do I need to wait? I tried raising this as a fault with with the ever helpful (sic) support team to be told my "complaint" was an Ofcom one and I would need to wait 30 days before I could claim compensation.

I am also in Area 30 and my upload is no faster than 52 at best even though i am on Gig1 so should have 104 upload also the download as still after nearly a month not gone above 600 via ethernet most days i am getting slower than when i was on 250 broadband sort this out VM


I am in area 20 and have no upload speed improvement, is there anyone who has got the 104 upload speed boost?

Tuning in

Also in area 30 on M500, received the email regarding speed boost on 1st June instructing to reboot the router.

After many, many reboots the Hub 3 is still configured to max upload traffic rate of 38520000

Virgin account/package is showing as 52Mbps average upload speed on the customer login

I too am in area 20 with 1 gig and am still getting 52 meg upload instead of the 104 meg. I have given up rebooting the hub and will wait for an email.
