Slow internet

For the past 2-3 weeks my internet has dropped from around 380mbs down to 50-60mbs it cuts out for 5-10seconds at random and ive tried restarting the hub 3 and factory resetting it multiple times, after the factory reset it works fine at full speed for around 5minutes and im back to square one. All of my connections are connected through cat6 cables which ive swapped out and still have the same problem.

I thought maybe there were some repairs or upgrades being done im my area so ive been patient and waited it out but every test ive done on the website say there is nothing wrong, nothing has improved, im paying for the 350 package and for almost an entire month ive only had 60mbs. My internet has been working fine for over a year since it was first installed and im pretty sure ive done everything i can on my end. if this doesnt improve in the next week ill be cancelling my contract, as im not paying for a service which im not recieving.

If anyone knows if there is anything i can try to fix this please let me know.

Re: Slow internet

Based on my recent experiances with Virgin Media Support Teams, I suggest you use a mobile phone to call them and record/save each call. From replacement devices to engineer visits, nothing will materialise as they agree. Their Customer services are lying and denying all what they have agreed in the previous conversation, when you call again to inform no engineer turned up on the day they promised.

Firstly set up a Broadband Quality Monitor (BQM) at thinkbroadband.com - this will give you an insight into what is happening with the signal at the Hub, it will take a few hours to get any kind of trend showing.

Post a link to your BQM on here.

then

Type 192.168.0.1 (192.168.100.1 in Modem mode ) into your browser URL bar and press enter.  When the page appears DO NOT LOG IN but click ‘Check Router Status’. Copy and paste the contents of each tab onto here, a Guru will be along soon to decipher the info.

sorry if the router status information is hard to read, it wouldnt let me insert graphs in the reply for some reason
