Until yesterday:



Switched to Telekom Hybrid (Combination of ADSL2+ & LTE) today:


There's more possible - up to 100 down & 40 up, but seems like I need some external antennas.

I can't get flash to work in Firefox right now, I need to troubleshoot that later, but my speed is always 50/30ish and is rock solid and I posted before.

But here's a different kind of speed test: :D Local file transfer from my NAS.



Nothing really that impressive, I was actually pushing about 110MB/sec for a short while but the Mint screenshot tool sucks donkey balls and by the time it actually decide to show up and take the screenshot the speed had reduced.

This is my work internet, though I have a feeling it is more limited by the fact that the computer only uses a 100mb connection.

Fios rocks! (no one else matches upload speeds with download speeds in my area)
This is their "mid-teir" plan :D

Oh yes from 10Mbit cable in Mississippi which is blazing fast for there to this on Tampa Bay Florida Verizon FIOS today:

to New York City

to Miami

It's supposed to be a Gig down/250up, but pfSense on ESXI on my current server can't handle it I guess. Will soon run pfSense on bare metal to get the speed up.

I agree. For some reason VMs (or at least ESXi and Xen) aren't very good at routing packet data.

my business speed. horrible


Just asked for the 50 meg tier, hopefully it helps.

Are all of your hardware specs fully capable of reaching such speeds?

I wonder if there is a bottleneck somewhere internally?

'Up to' 152 Mb service from Virgin Media, supposed to be 12Mb up.... close enough for me, certainly an improvement over the 2.87 Mb up I used to get with their 60Mb service

105/10 comcast over unifi ap. limited by 100mbps nic on it.

No, you're not limited by the 10/100 port on the AP. You are limited by the radio itself. The 10/100 port is enough for the regular UAPs. A gigabit port wouldn't improve speeds at all.

why do you say that? the laptop connects at 300mbps. if i do a file transfer from my server the the laptop, i can see the laptop max out at around 100mbps.

Wireless is half-duplex + overhead, wired is full duplex. 300mbps half = 150mbps full.

80ish Mbps is generally considered pretty good for 802.11n. I get about 100mbps on my dedicated PTP links with very specific hardware. With some consumer routers you can completely trash the 5ghz range for everyone around you and bond multiple channels.

so it would max out at 150mpbs right? i can only get 100mbps doing local network transfers (1gb to 802.11n).

Just got my comcast installed, this is wireless speed at about 20 feet from the router.
I'm happy.

Read that link. That is 150mbps minus overhead. Theres a lot of overhead.

Below is a breakdown of the various 802.11 WiFi standards and their corresponding maximum speeds. Theoretical wireless speeds (combined upstream and downstream) are as follows:
802.11b - 11 Mbps (2.4GHz)
802.11a - 54 Mbps (5 GHz)
802.11g - 54 Mbps (2.4GHz)
802.11n - 600 Mbps (2.4GHz and 5 GHz) - 150Mbps typical for network adapters, 300Mbps, 450Mbps, and 600Mbps speeds when bonding channels with some routers
802.11ac - 1300+Mbps (5 GHz) - newer standard that uses wider channels, QAM and spatial streams for higher throughput
Actual wireless speeds vary significantly from the above theoretical maximum speeds due to:
distance - distance from the access point, as well as any physical obstructions, such as walls, signal-blocking or reflecting materials affect signal propagation and reduce speed
interference - other wireless networks and devices in the same frequency in the same area affect performance
shared bandwidth - available bandwidth is shared between all users on the same wireless network.
Below is a breakdown of actual real-life average speeds you can expect from wireless routers within a reasonable distance, with low interference and small number of simultaneous clients:
802.11b - 2-3 Mbps downstream, up to 5-6 Mbps with some vendor-specific extensions.
802.11g - ~20 Mbps downstream
802.11n - 40-50 Mbps typical, varying greatly depending on configuration, whether it is mixed or N-only network, the number of bonded channels, etc. Specifying a channel, and using 40MHz channels can help achieve 70-80Mbps with some newer routers. Up to 100 Mbps achievable with more expensive commercial equipment with 8x8 arrays, gigabit ports, etc.
802.11ac - 70-100+ Mbps typical, higher speeds possible over short distances without many obstacles, with newer generation 802.11ac routers, and client adapters capable of multiple streams.
150mbps is the theoretical maximum, and is only possible if you are operating inside a vacuum, with physically perfect components in your AP and client (physically impossible), using a protocol with zero overhead (which SMB is far from...), you only have one client, the spectrum is entirely devoid of any interference (including humidity, stray beams of light, etc.), your client is 0.0um from the AP, and you have discharged any residual static electricity from your body.

My PC should be able to do gig for sure, i5-4760k with intel pci-e nic, not using onboard realtek. I didn't do much testing directly connected to the ONT though so I'm not sure. Haven't been too concerned with it for right now, the main thing is I get GB to my house. I'll get around to trying to make it faster eventually.

I'm uber jealous of gigabit connection.

Comcast is to roll out 2 gigabit here in San Jose by the end of this month or July.
They just boosted my 105 meg package to around 200 down for free.... which is quite nice.

But, theoretically, ten times faster than this?
Bad ass....

Yeah, upload is quite awesome for backing up to the cloud. And I use BTSync to get some shows I download for my friend to her laptop. I max out her 20mb connection no problem when transferring. And the next thing I want is plex running so I can access my media anywhere, haven't yet got around to setting that up.

Download is cool, but not super useful ATM. But when I'm downloading something at 400+ Mbps that's fun. And I have a vpn from work to home that runs 24/7 for VOIP, remote desktop into my home PC is like being on my LAN.
