Hi there, major issues today (3rd June 2020) with my broadband. Download speeds less than 1Mbps (see picture below), we should be getting 100Mpbs.
I cannot stress the importance of needing fast internet at the moment. I am a freelancer working from home, if i cannot work I will not get paid. This issue needs to be sorted ASAP.
I have phoned customer services and have done all the usually tests to no avail. I have been told an engineer will be sent on Monday and this is the earliest possible. I cannot wait 5 days for this issue to be resolved.
Just to chime in, exact same problem in the same area. From a 150 mbps speed down to about 1 ish for the past few days also. I've grown used to Virgin having the odd blip or all out outage(which they refunded me the days i had no internet) but this is very bad especially since we are still in lockdown.
Just to add, its nothing from my end as far as i know. I've not touched any of the hardware for months to years now even except for the odd cleaning and dusting. The slowdown started occurring from past few days without warning, i didn't notice at first as i was quite inactive but when i started to go into 'work' mode and everything took a lot longer to download and upload it became very noticeable.
I hope VM solves this soon as browsing on this forum i'm not the only one who has slowdown problems.
Yes tried all the usual resets, unplugging everything for 15 minutes, pin reset etc, definitely not a problem our end.
What adds to the frustration is Virgin Media's automatic assumption that it's always something wrong with the router, their equivalent of "have you tried turning it off and back on again" - if other people in the area are having the same issues, it not our problem, it's Virgin Media's service, they need to send out engineers to fix it asap and stop wasting our time.
