Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

We  paying Comcast's 150/10  internet package every months. I use FAST.com and Speedtest.net to checking my internet speed, noticed my speed actually faster (170-180 Mbps) than advertise. How I got 20-30 Mbps more than my advertised internet speed?

Basically the above: there's usually a bit of overhead with better packages to try to guarantee your intended speeds even in busy hours.

I normally get around 115Mbps down and up even though we pay for 100 here.

ISPs can offer burst rates or off-hour rates when bandwidth is available.

They often give a little overhead on top of rated speeds to make sure they don't dip too far during busier hours.

 

Ah I see. That's interest. Thanks for answer my question...

Comcast over provisions service by 20% in most area's. As long as the node your connected to has the bandwidth available. 


You ever notice that many establishments have a sign that as "No Shirt, No Shoes, No service"? They never say anything about pants............ You know what that implies. You dont have to wear pants.
