Re: 60mb big problem

It's never been that bad before though. I'm wondering if they're still "upgrading". I hope so because I'm not sure I'll keep my cool if I have to speak to yet another clueless CSR

Re: 60mb big problem

don't bother with cable support they haven't got the info or ability to look into how far along upgrades are. We're at an early-mid stage of upgrades. things should look a bit better by the end of the week

Re: 60mb big problem

I know upgrades are taking place but if its that bad get intouch with the CEO,

write up an email including your contact details and you'll be contacted by someone high up at VM. they should be able to look into it and may be know or ask how far the upgrades are in Crawley

Re: 60mb big problem

I'll do that, thanks thenry. It's becoming rather more than frustrating.

Other ISPs manage it just fine... In fact some even manage it without any downtime at all.

Re: 60mb big problem

I've been on 60meg for a couple of weeks now and apart from one night when it dropped to 0.8 of a meg it's been pretty stable........until tonight at about 7.30ish was online saw the superhub reboot came back online and lo and behold I'm only getting 30meg wired or wireless.

Checked the settings no change in the config file called support and was told I needed a tech out. Not been downloading so it's not a capping issue no area faults I told the agent I'll leave it as it will probably correct itself by the morning. It's Swansea area which is pretty stable normally

Re: 60mb big problem

if youve got your own router put the SuperHub into modem mode and link your router

Re: 60mb big problem

I run the BT speedtest this morning and last night seems to be more reliable than speedtest.net shows just over 60 meg on both runs. Thinkbroadband test confirms the BT results.

Re: 60mb big problem

I'm still waiting for a sensible answer to my e-mail to Mr Berkett. 'Sorry but Neil isn't available' is not what I would call a satisfactory reply. Not even the promised phone call that is now 48 hours overdue. Really really not impressed.
