Sweden and Norway have high enough and good connections! but on 500mb hook up to 356mb is so much the bearer loss! maybe they are far from the cabinet? or the Central? FTTC? FTTS? FTTH?

That ever since England has ultra-high-end servers, it makes me wonder that you Curtis has such a slow connection! In Italy we came to 1GB of connection​

I'm not on a particularly good package, but even so my internet is pretty slow at times.

If I want better internet I have to upgrade to the fibre plans.

Is this good?:eek:
I have Comcast cable TV with the residential internet package.
I logged off any other site as it said it could factor in.

With Wifi and the modum in the next room,
37.21Mbps down load 11.87Mbps Up load

Direct cable,
93.47Mbps down load 12.01Mbps Up load

That's pretty decent, though looks like you need to upgrade your WiFi. I'd hazard a guess that you're on 2.4GHz 802.11/g/n. Going to 5GHz 802.11/n/ac should result in faster speeds on WiFi. :)

Your device (computer etc) needs to be capable of 802.11ac to make use of it. 802.11ac routers/access points are usually backwards compatible with 802.11g and 802.11n, so if your device (computer etc) only supports 802.11g you'll still be able to use it, but only at 802.11g speeds. You're half way there though! :D Got half of the equipment you need for 802.11ac. :D



If your computer/laptop/device supports 5GHz 802.11n then I'd suggest using that where possible (You could be using 2.4GHz 802.11n just now). You'll get less range (5GHz has higher attenuation through walls and such compared with 2.4GHz), but the performance should be drastically improved vs 2.4GHz. Bunch of reason for that but I won't get into it. :)

Yeah, with 5GHz you need to be closer to your router to get a good signal, it doesn't travel through walls and stuff as well as 2.4Ghz does.

For example, I live in a 1 bedroom apartment, my WiFi access point is near the front door. Out on the balcony which is at the other side of the apartment I often have a hard time getting a decent signal on 5GHz, but on 2.4Ghz I get a good signal.

Also powerful from your connections! how does it work there? do you buy annual packages? or do you have a telephone contract that offers fixed phone and fiber optic?​

Usually you do annual plans with monthly payments. Depending on the company and what they offer then you can get TV, Broadband and Telephone and then pay for line rental.
Currently the fastest fibre plan I can find is £35 per month + Telephone and a setup cost of £20. So I would be looking at £440 per year just for internet, as I barely use the telephone.
