I have been a customer since the days of Cable and Wireless, and have had 200mb since its launch. The last few months the 200mb goes between 20 and 90mb. On speedtest.net the result changes dramatically between each run. I have seen from other posters that this area has gone down the gurgler, which is bonkers as it used to be 200mb or abouts every time I did a check. I pay for 4K Netflix and some evenings it struggles to stream. Surely Virginmedia need to address this?
Spoke to one of your colleagues on 150, who said 200mb isn't achievable in this area at the moment due to the old system that we are on. He stated that we should have a new system in this area by the end of October?
In regards to this issue, I am unable to see any faults on the network that would cause you to experience slow speeds. I'm sorry for the miss-information that you were given.
I would like to help further and the next step would be to try a speed test direct to the Hub without your equipment attached. Also make sure you are using a Cat 5e or above Ethernet cable and the PC/laptop has a gigabit LAN card.
Dover area here too and I can report the same issues, though nobody from VM responded to my posts when I made a thread back in July.
My speeds, much like yours, vary between 10 and 70Mb wired or wireless when they used to be completely fine (220Mb all day).
Husky, you being told it'll be sorted "by the end of Ocbober" tallies with the information I had managed to get from someone else, but I'm really not getting my hopes up, These issues have been ongoing since last year at least due to the antiquated CMTS we are on and rumored difficulties with upgrading anything within the locality.
TBB shows it also, Dover recently tallied as the worst place in the UK for VM Cable performance, from their speed test results.
So basically you are saying the chap I spoke to on 150 is a liar and there is absolutely nothing wrong with the broadband in Dover? He said a technician appointment would not get the speed up to 200mb due to the system we are on. I have a hard wired connection to a PC and have always got 200mb plus or minus 10mb. Now it fluctuates between 20 and 90. So if you want to send a technician and guarantee I will be back to 200mb, go for it.
