My next problem is that I am only getting around 20mbps over wireless. I guess I will have to switch over to N at some point. Bleh. I liked my old crappy router with Tomato on it.

Happy with my speed atm. Jesus, back in early 00s, I used to leave my PC on all night just to get a 700mb game. Lozerz at that.

Dirt 3, took one morning to download from Steam. Dont get any better.
And thats Virgins Media's lowest net speed offering. £21 a month. Iv won. 50meg is there max. Insane!

I miss my 40Mbit Download and 8Mbit Upload speed that I had just a few weeks ago, and the even more sad thing is I am still paying the same price for my 20Mbit download, 862Kbit upload.

I don't know where the test server for testmy.net is, but my connection can do much better at speedtest.net (local server).

wireless 3G/4G/LTE always suck at the latency.

However, I'm not so sure about the LTE advanced if it can improves the latency.

When they had my area testing more channel bonding, I was getting 100/50 consistently on powerboost, 50/20 without.

So my campus decided to add WiFi to the dorms. As a result the wall Ethernet ports are way faster now since fewer people are using them




EDIT: even using a sever that is ridiculously far away it's still pretty fast

4g latency doesnt suck.. at least not here. Thats one of the main reasons to switch to 4g.

4g here is 20-40 ms

They just completed a whole CS tournament over 4g here in sweden to prove how good the latency is
