I've been experiencing slow speeds since yesterday, having only just moved to M200 from M100 a couple of days ago.
I was an M200 customer a while ago, downgraded to M100 and am now back with M200 again and had good performance previously. My speed now is around 20mbps down and 2mbps up so well below the minimum acceptable speed according to the details I read recently while performing my upgrade request.
On the evening that the upgrade was completed (2 nights ago now) I easily hit 200mbps and so I know the line was good at the time.
My area is 22 which currently shows no issues and I've already been through the VM test of my equipment (the old test, wait 10 minutes and then restart) a couple of times and that hasn't helped at all.
It was mentioned to me that a couple of VM engineers where raising paving slabs in the street just yesterday and so I do wonder if something has gone wrong as a consequence of whatever they were up to.
Anyhow, If someone could possibly check my details/logs below it would be a big help in determining if the problem is me or VM themselves.
To be honest, I'm loathed to have to call support hence my seeking advice/guidance from the forums. Thanks in advance folks!
Many thanks for the stats, there is certainly some issues going on first of all which hub do you have ?
You have a large amount of post RS errors on your downstream and also a few T3 errors on your upstream, as well as only 2 upstream channels, I would go around and make sure that all coaxial connectors to all VM equipment are finger tight, as the errors could be caused by noise on the line caused by a loose connection.
After that power off hub for 30 secs and then back on. If that doesnt resolve the issue the an engineer is going to be needed, so either call in on 150 may be a wait before answer or wait for a VM staff member to pick up the post.

Thanks very much for your super-fast reply to my query. I have the Superhub 2 AC hardware.
As a side note, I've a long standing concern re the cabling in my street (why I mentioned the engineers in the street yesterday) as a couple of years back British Gas came around and ripped-up the street feeding plastic pipes inside the existing metal piping and while they were doing that they utterly wrecked VMs conduits (I took pictures incase of issues). When they's finished they just back-filled the holes they made and so I know that VMs coax cable must be in raw earth at several points along its run and 'could' have been affected by whatever VMs engineers were doing recently.
As for my connectors, they'll all sound and 'righty, tighty'.
Following the restart of all the kit, the speed is slightly better at 35-40'ish mbps but sadly that's all that has changed.
