Wi-Fi speed on 1GB

Joining in

What speeds are people getting on their Wi-Fi with the 1GB package? I am struggling to get over 80mbps on both my fire stick and iPhone 14, I have 2 Wi-Fi pods both located around 3 metres apart with the hub just above them, I struggle to crack 100mbps when iPhone is next to the hub. Wired speed is 920mbps.



The location of VM Hubs ( Wi-Fi Repeaters is critical ). Be aware as we cross each Wi-Fi repeater the speed tends to halve due to the half duplex nature of Wi-Fi & multiple repeaters in too lose a proximity to each other further degrade the speeds on a shared channel.

As a test, turn off both VM Pods, and used your IPhone speed test app at the location of each VM Pod, do you get a good result ? 

If not, the VM Pod has no chance of delivering decent performance from that location.

If you can watch 4K on your phone then its fine if you want the speed get a better phone or and a better wifi router

The VM (PLUME) PODs are not Half Duplex unlike the old rectangle VM Powerline boosters, I get 600+Mb/s on my HUB4+SuperPod (both WIFI 5ac Link Speed 866Mb/s) on my PC, Nvidia Shield and Android phone (though first two are used wired outside of testing and can test my phone wired also).
