Vivid 1gb speed throttle ?

So, after seeing so many people with speed issues, are you throttling your service to cope with the extra load ?

Switched 2months ago to your Vivid 1gb service, upgrading from 350.

I run the hub in modem mode, using as 1gb capable Asus router.

Wired speeds were 960down 60up

Wireless speeds using my latest device a Samsung tab S6 580down 55up

Now since this lovely covid 19, over wireless I'm maxing at 260down 40up

I'm optimised on all settings, and both routers are running latest firmware ...

So whats the crack? With these speeds I may aswell downgrade and get the same speeds for less cost.

Anyone else experienced speed drops ?

VM is not throttling the connection. Your understanding of what throttling is wrong
