I am paying for m200 broadband , consistantly get 80-90, helpline says all checks done at their end show no probs so nothing can b done, and this is after my contract was changed by virginmedia 1 month after joining, and the new monthly payment has been increased by vm by 18 pounds a month!!! What a way to treat your customers, as soon as I can I'm cancelling .
80-90 mbps is suspiciously close to what you get if you are not using GB enabled devices - but just 10/100 ones. What device(s) are you testing on and what are the specs of the NIC card? Are the drivers up to date? Any non-GB switches in the loop?

I'm testing on a wired connection to my PC, and before the contract change, when I was paying for m100 broadband, I was consistently getting 95-105 gb, the problem now is I am now paying( through the nose) for m200 and now getting worse speeds than before.
Navigate to the hub's GUI using http://192.168.0.1 Don't log in, click the Router Status button in the top right of the screen. Copy \ Paste the Downstream, Upstream, and Network Logs.
Don't worry about the formatting, but do obscure personal information like your WAN IP address. It might be worth checking the configuration page to double check you have been provisioned correctly.
As a wired connection has been confirmed I would now check that your Ethernet NIC is gigabit rated and you are using CAT 5E or better Ethernet cable. It maybe worth trying a different Ethernet cable as they can go bad.
