Ping 12 Download 37.05 Mbps Upload 0.05 Mbps WD18

This is my speed since last last Friday.
I've restarted / shutdown my router and checked all the cables to be on the right place, and it's the same result every time.

I followed every help instruction from the site to make it faster but still... nothing. As I've seen there are a lot on forum from my area

Today there was some working done because it failed a lot the network, but still no change on the speed/upload.

Is it possible to do something ? anyone?

Re: Ping 12 Download 37.05 Mbps Upload 0.05 Mbps WD18

because of the amount of people working from home the speedtest.net servers are becoming congested and giving out inaccurate data. have you tried changing the speedtest server to Manchester or Edinburgh virginmedia and running the test again?

Hi Ian,

Honestly it seems more like the Virgin Media servers are overloaded to me.

Google's speed test is giving the following

99.2Mbps download

0.02Mbps upload

Latency: 29 ms
Server: Dublin
 
I get similar results with speedtest.net as well as from my M5.8xlarge instance in AWS which has 10Gbps network connectivity. 
 
This is from a desktop - results are the same on my mobile which unsurprisingly vastly improve when I go over 4G rather than Virgin Media. It's been fine previously but today it's been beyond terrible - L23 area.
