    I pay for a 20Mb connection, so pretty good considering - and it's a Friday night!
    I just can't get enough of that Apple loveliness! Piled up they are, piled up around the house - like acrylic and aluminium testaments to Apple's genius. And they all work perfectly, obviously.

    I'm getting 50mbs service on Rogers Ultimate (docsis 3.0). It varies though going as high as 89mbs or as low as 11mbs. The usual average is close to the advertised 50mbs.
    Cheers,

    Monday morning in sunny Sweden..



    It's not that I think stupidity should be punishable by death, I just think we should take the warning labels off of things and let the problem take care of itself..

    good and bad
    I have a Modem and Wireless Router downstairs, bringing in VirginMedia's 50Mb fibre optic broadband.
    At my Mac i'm getting a Ping of 17ms, download speeds of about 35Mbps and upload of about 4Mbps. That's all fine.
    But my son has a Mac in his bedroom, and via the same WiFi, his connection has suddenly dropped to a Ping of 15ms, download speeds of about 3Mbps and upload of about 1Mbps.
    His was much better a few days ago, and we haven't changed anything that should have made a difference to his connection speed. Can someone please suggest why this might have happened, and how to fix it?
    (other than "turn it off and turn it back on again"!)

    Thanks in advance
    Paul

    Have any devices been introduced into the household recently that emit radio frequency? Cordless phones, baby monitors, wireless cameras, etc. all use the same 2.4GHz band that wifi operates on and can bite into the bandwidth of a client device. You may also want to try changing the channel your wireless router operates on.

    Question Network Speed
    I don't know how you posted your screen picture. My speed was 82 ms ping, 2.24 Mbps download, and 0.13 Mbps upload. Is this too slow to stream video from say, Netflix?
    I have a Clear wireless modem about fifty feet away connecting with a new 27" iMac with 1 TB and 16 GB RAM.

    There should be a button to click to generate a forum link when you click "Share this result". Once you have that, you can insert an image in your post using the "Insert Image" button, using that URL when prompted.

    Your transfer rate isn't terrible - it's about the speed of a DSL connection. You could probably do better with a landline of some sort. You should be able to stream video standard definition video from Netflix, although I'd be concerned about the consistency of the connection, because wireless signals can be easily interrupted (even if only for a split second), and this could have the effect of fouling up the stream (although it should have some kind of buffer).

    Clear internet speed
    Hindsight is 20/20. I got the Clear service because it was such a good deal in the bundled form (telephone, home internet and internet on the go). I have had issues with dropped signals. It is much less now than before, but still... The main issue here is that it is wireless; no land connection available. The contract will expire next September.... hummmm.

    Welcome to deepest, darkest, Northamptonshire...



    It's funny, even a couple of years ago 7mb would have been considered quick. Now it's slower than 50% of the UK.

    What really sucks is that I have to pay over $50 a month for this (~6Mb/s cap). No competition up here in the mountains!
