Are you saying that you can't get ANY speed below 300Mbps? And you are unhappy about it?

When you say that VM are lying to you, is that because the mailing is addressed to you or is just a case of getting a general flyer put through the door?

If you are getting a letter addressed to you from VM then you can say they are lying to you if you can't get that speed.

On the other hand, if it's just a general flyer that is being put through the door then your grievance is with the people who have put the flyer through your door and not VM directly.

No, he's saying he's getting marketing leaflets implying he can get speeds up to 300 Mbps, but the checker does not show the 300 Mbps option.

Exactly, the leaflet says he can get UP TO 300Mbps so it is only lying if he can't actually get any speed lower than 300Mbps.

VM probably just need to sort their database and it's an oversight. OP would be better off reaching out to VM via their community site or the phone than going to Ofcom.

Certainly here they only send me spam offering 200.

I think you're logic is a bit off there, if the fastest product he can buy is 200 Mbps then he can only get upto 200 Mbps products and can't get the 300 which the leaflet implies he can.

Remember VM works by package speed, its the congestion which results in lower speeds than your synced at.When viewed this way, the leaflet is wrong.

I think you may have had an accidental sense of humor bypass sometime in the past. I was being sarcastic about the way the OP phrased it.
