Slow download speeds on FTTP 900

Hi,

I had FTTP900 installed last year and have never been convinced about the download speeds. Running speed tests when connected via cat 5e to the smart hub I am only getting around 230Mbps at the most download, upload speed seems to be fine at around 100Mbps. Depending which speed tests I use these do vary a bit but this would be a good average. Speeds are similar when connected via wi-fi near the router.

Is it the smarthub that is causing the issue? Would I get better speeds swapping to something else? Is there anything else I should try?

You can rule out the hub by directly connecting a PC/Laptop to the ONT and setting up a PPPoE connection.

For speed tests use https://fast.com/

Thanks For this, just managed to check today and showing as 180Mbps on fast.com when connect directly to the ONT.

Any help to sort this issue would be much appreciated.
