Slow broadband

Posting here as requested on Twitter. 

I pay for 360/36 broadband. Last few weeks I’m getting 180/2

This isn’t usable for home working (the upload speed is terrible) or even my Ring cameras. 

I need this fixing and cannot get any information other than it might be fixed at some point in the future.

Re: Slow broadband

Hi Dannyuk1982, 

Thanks for your post and welcome to our community. 

I am really sorry you're having some issues with the speeds at the moment, this isn't good. 

I've tried to have a look into this but I've not been able to locate your account, therefore I'll need to pop you a personal message. 

I'll do this now and I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

Re: Slow broadband

This is fixed now, but I've just had my bill through and it's for the full amount despite my internet being useless during this time.

I messaged the person that helped me with the fault but was told it was an "Unsolicited Private Message" and to start a new post.

I started a new post but was then told to update this one...

Re: Slow broadband

Wow, that is ridiculous.

So you can provide 1mbps but I have to pay for 360/36mbps.

Re: Slow broadband

I guess, I've not really let them corner me in such a way before.

I recently binned there M350 service at my home and stuck with my 50Mb EE connection, wasn't much of a speed issue with Virgin though, was just a disagreement over TV service and when I looked at my needs the backup line (office purposes) was better for certain things and I wasn't using much bandwidth and when I need bandwidth I just let my phone take over as it draws in 300-400mbps.

If I've helped please let me know 🙂 Matt

Re: Slow broadband

Unfortunately I only get 30/4 via ADSL on my street which just isn't quick enough for me, esp. as I work from home now post-COVID. Really hoping some other quicker services come out in the area soon as Virgin's CS is abysmal!
