Supposedly 300mb broadband currently getting 4.84mb max 5mb obviously capped to 5mb going by the profiles. Upload fine at over 20mb. But why am I paying top dollar for 5mb download? G74 area 22.20 12th Jan 2018.
Vivid 300/350 had no STM period not on the UL or DL, all Tiers do have P2P Shaping if the area you live needs it at peak times due to congestion and it certainly would not go down to 5Mb/s so there is an issue with your connection IMO.
