Their *entry level* 240Mbit/s package. (Next residential tier is 360 and Business is 400)

I'm routinely getting 221 Mbps with a UK VM 200 Mbps package, but note your linked image and my speedtests are against fairly local servers, and I suspect VM prioritise Ookla traffic for those. I get somewhat slower speeds by selecting servers that VM wouldn't expect me to use, although those tend to be more distant.

And according to hearsay, that 10% extra speed "free" I seem to be getting only comes if you are enrolled in VM's wifi hotspot scheme.
