Hi Virgin community, I'm wondering can someone help me here. I have M200 broadband, when I do a speed test I've always got around 218 always over the 200, today I do a test and I am getting below 100, 97 to be precise. I phoned Virgin and they said you will always get around 50%, this has left me confused because speed tests always gave me 200+, I was assured by Virgin that this is correct, my question is why am I paying for 200 and only getting half that? I said I may as well drop my broadband package to 100 and I was then told you'll get 50% of that, this is crazy, imagine that in any other service or product were you pay for half of what you get. Can someone put me in the picture here, I feel as if I'm missing something or not understanding how this works, many thanks
And, of course, the advice from 'technical support' and we can use the terms 'technical' and 'support' in their loosest possible meanings, was indeed a load of made up nonsense. Still; got you off the phone and they chalk up another successfully closed call - so high fives all round there then!
Incidentally the 97 Mb/s is somewhat suggestive, are you just using the Hub itself for WiFi? And other routers, wifi access points or extenders?
And this is what VM says about ending your contract:
"If the download speeds to your the Virgin Media Hub falls below our minimum download speed guarantee for three consecutive days (continuously or intermittently) and we’re unable to fix the problem within 30 days, you may be able to leave your contract without paying an early disconnection fee."
Hi Rudis, thanks for the message and sorry to hear that you are having issues with the Wi-Fi connection, this is not the experience which we want you to have with us. Would you be able to confirm how things are at the moment and if there is still an issue? ^Chris.
