Speed very fast on mobile/tablet but slow on PC

Just got virgin media installed and on Hub 3. and speed is 388 on wired connection and is perfect. 

On mobile and tablets (wireless), I get full speeds and works perfect but on my PC using wireless I am getting sometimes as low as 10?

why am I not getting full speed on my PC but I am getting it on phones/tablets? Tried changing channels in router settings but made little to no difference.

What "wireless" card does your pc have - or are you using a usb dongle ?

TP-LINK TL-WN881ND 300 Mbps.

It works perfect when wired, but wireless is awful sometimes as low as 10mbps.

(Max) Data Link Speed - You'll rarely get within >90% even on a properly tuned system without any distance/ranging drop off - R.O.T ACTUAL expectation probably  around 50% .....

For a cheap and cheerful £12 pci card you get what you pay for!!! 😞 (which is diddly squat in your scenario) .  "eventus stultorum magister" 😛

If you're aim to continue with V350 Tier (and want to future proof) then start looking for Dual Band 802.11AC  Say 800Mbps upwards .......   Goog luck....

(EDIT > Greater than" : in unlikely case another senile pedantic old fart like me is paying attention to my monologue.....  😛    R.O.T  "Rule Of Thumb" )

Horseman is right (of course Smiley Happy) your problem is the PC's network card.  You should replace it with a 1200mbps wifi card with both 2.4 & 5 GHz network capabilities - and with a good antenna.
