    Re: Your broadband speed - post here

    I had a hell of a time recently with VM. Less than 1Mbit.

    Since them resolving the issue on their end (without even letting me know) I have put their S*!#hub 3 in modem mode and bought an Asus router. Now I have gone from an F rating of bufferbloat to C rating and my speeds are GREAT.

    See for yourself:

    Isn't it such a refreshing change to get MORE broadband than you're paying for?!

    I pay for Vivid 350, 350 down, 20 up.

    Haha yes!
    I'll have to see what I get on a Saturday evening though - might go down.
    My SNR is around 40dB and they've actually added 13dB attenuation as I'm only 30m from the cabinet.
    New router looks good and appears to work well. I've turned off the WiFi on it as I have a Cisco Meraki WAP I use. So far, so good

    Whereabouts in Reading?
    Did they have to lay lines, or was it already available?

    Re: Your broadband speed - post here

    Already had VM residential cable (on a 100Mb service, only ever getting around 80). Fortunately, I hadn't "upgraded" to a superhub 3 so haven't been plagued by all those issues.

    They reused the same coax as I had before. It was just a 30-second plug-up exercise! It took longer for them on the phone to register new MAC address and commission the new router.

    I'm near Tilehurst fire station, off Dee Road.
