    Router speed issue
    Good day to all you friendly people
    I have EE fibre broadband had a small issue with them over to past week regarding speed slowing I signed up for fibre 38Mbps.
    Over the past week or so the speed dropped to 28/9Mbps thought it was one of those bad days but no it wasn't,decided to get in touch with EE they did a few tests their end with no joy?
    They decided to call out open reach to find the fault and yes the problem was fixed.
    my question to you people is if there is 39Mbps going into the router what speed should come out as wifi / ethernet?.
    Many thanks to all in advance. PS the router is EE's own.
    David.

    First off, try using various speed tests and if you looke carefully, some have a FAQ with all the answerts to the questions you are asking.

    Just goole search for 'speed test' and try several of the found hits.

    Most routers have 100 Mbps Ethernet ports, some have 1000 Mbps ports and really expensive ones have 10G Mbps. WiFi depending on the frequency and type will vary from 5 Mbps to about 200 Mbps or so. While theoretical speed for WiFi is much faster, you lose a ton of that with interference and retransmission.

    Anyway, your internet network is always going to be faster than your Internet connection. So if you have multiple users doing a lot of streaming, your individual bandwidth will be limited.

    Even with business Internet, on my MBP with a 1000 Mbps USB-C router, I get around 850 Mbps up and down.
