I have upgraded to oomph package because of the issues with my speeds dropping all the time when gaming etc and I have now lost my old speed and it’s stuck between 130-180 and my old package was 220 not happy chap what the hell virgin and I hate trying to phone them is this common issue
Did you get a new Hub with the package change? What Hub do you have? What speed package are you on?
Also, is this only on wifi connections - what do you get on ethernet cable connections
It would be worth trying a “pinhole reset” - make sure the 2 passwords on the Hub sticker are still there and legible first ! Disconnect any ethernet cables from the Hub (leave the coax connected), and then with the Hub still "switched on" throughout, press pin in firmly with paper clip/SIM tray tool or similar "thin thing" and hold it firmly for at least 60 seconds, release the pin, leave for 5’ to stabilise - dont manually switch it off at any time.
See if that sorts it.
Also, look in the Hub settings at the "Configuration Data" page and see what numbers are in the "max data transfer rate" boxes - these are in bps not mbps this will show whether the upgrade has been properly applied

I have been able to locate your account and I cannot see anything that could be causing an issue as everything appears to be in spec. I can see there are quite a lot of devices connected at the moment on WiFi. Can I just clarify what you meant when you said you couldn't connect to your hub remotely or via Ethernet?
I have managed to connect to setting now that’s ok now look at the last 3 checks with 5 mins and that’s 5 items using broadband and that was 548 i then decided to double check just in case I thought I was seeing things and it had decided to drop again attached proof something isn’t right no one can tell me different now
Is this a test via WiFi? We aren't able to guarantee WiFi speeds as there are many different variables in your home which we cannot control. Our minimum guaranteed speed is the speed to the Hub, which is why we ask you to perform an Ethernet speed test.
I know you have mentioned you are unable to connect via Ethernet, is this because you have no devices that can do so or because you do not have an Ethernet cable? If you don't have a cable I can send one out for you?
Well according to Virgin I should not go below 315 a take it that’s a lie to sell people then they reassured me on phone I would get those speeds see attached pic and I haven’t got anything to attach cable to
I'm unable to see the full text for this image but this is the guaranteed minimum speed to the router, which you would need to test via an Ethernet connection. Again I am so sorry but we are unable to guarantee WiFi speeds.
