    Your iMac @ 87Mbps is certainly exceeding what you're paying for (50Mbps)!
    Hi Nick - not sure 'how' to explain the difference - on my old plan I would get about 24 Mbps on both computers - redid the iMac and got about 90 Mbps - now I have the Wi-Fi & Bluetooth ON for the iMac (so I can do AirDrop) - just turned off the Wi-Fi and got the same DL/UL speeds - I'm assuming that the cabled iMac defaults to testing the speed via the ethernet cable?

    The MBPro was in the den (one wall in-between), so took the laptop to the router's room and got 84 Mbps - NOW, I'll have to check w/ T-W is make sure I'm on the cheaper plan and not the 100 Mbps one? Thanks for the questions - I was wondering also. Dave

    Assuming that the MBP is always using WiFi in the testing. And if the MBP was getting ~48Mbps in the den…and ~84Mbps in the router room.

    Either your den is really far from the router (signal loss due to distance)…the wall between the router room & den is seriously blocking the WiFi signal…or both (long distance & wall).

    Yes…I agree. Definitely check with Time-Warner to make sure you're on the correct plan you chose (50Mbps plan). 80+Mbps on a 50Mbps plan is pretty awesome. Of course…if Time Warner confirms you have the 50Mbps plan…DON'T tell them you're getting 80Mbps!!! Unless this would cause you to lose sleep at night!!!

    Wi-Fi only option on the MBPro (although I do have a USB-Ethernet adapter) - the router is in the next room probably about 50-60 feet away - the one wall is stud/insulation, plaster board on one side and wood paneling in the den - the paneling is at least 3/4", so likely does weaken my signal - image below using one of my Wi-Fi apps shows about 65% signal strength in the den (shoots up to 90+% when I take the laptop into the router room), so I've always assumed that it was wood wall?

    NOPE - doesn't bother me at all, unless I'm being charged for the other plan, but in my T-W account, I am listed as having their 'Extreme' plan and my bill is about the same as before this upgrade in speed - probably won't even give them a call - Dave

    Specs:
    Imac 27", i7 4GHz, 1TB Flash Storage, 32GB memory, OS X.12.3
    Compared to rural Australia 6.7Mbps download and 1.12 upload, reasonably good I wouth think lol!
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Always nice to get a little bit more than you pay for. Looks like about 10% more on the download & 20% more on the upload!
