So... we've got Virgin Fibre. I just tested my download speed with my laptop in its usual position, connected wirelessly and got about 5 Mbps. I wired it into the router and got 230 Mbps. The laptop is about 7 foot away from the router, in the same room. I never realised the difference would be that big. Why is it such a big difference? We've got the usual things going, the telly is on, tablets etc. The router is the standard Virgin one. Is it worth getting a better one? Will it make a difference? Or do I just need to get a 10 foot ethernet cable and run it round the fireplace.
