ISP Throttling speeds?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm meant to be getting 100Mbps down and 30 up. My ISP is MyRepublic.

This is a speedtest run from my home NAS which is connected via ethernet. Only 35Mbps which is disappointing. When we first got this connection and infact a few months ago, I was getting 100Mbps but now all of a sudden it's gone to shit.

 

I am getting a new ISP soon with a speed upgrade to 200Mbps which will be good, but I am wondering why I am getting just over a quarter of the speed I should be getting.

ISP advertise maximum speeds, not minimum during peak hours, also number of devices on the network, router and other hardware could be affecting the speeds.
 


I'm on spectrum in the USA, and when I was on tier 3(base) at 100mbps, I never got above 40 even on off hours with lots of downtime and packet loss. after upgrading to tier 2 at 400mbps, all my problems are gone with no dead time and hitting 500mbps+ at peak times. I did replace the WIFI router though since the one they provide is so bad that the technicians didn't even bother trying to defend it.

Could be the higher load cause everyone is staying at home, and home internet connections are very overprovisioned.

I'm on Fibre internet which doesn't get loaded down if more people are using it

True. I did run those speed tests while everyone was using the internet at the house.

Its still overprovisioned. There probably using some sort of pon system, and those are shared between people in the same area. Even then, the main uplinks are almost certantly lower than the combined speeds of all the subscribers.

fibre is only in the house, outside of the house is still the same copper cabling that you share with your neighbors.

You should test it with the speedtest web and try to change the server to the nearest.

And you should be aware that in this corona quarantine times the network usage is very high and might not result the normal speed.

yes if it's a cable company. Modern fibre isp used full fibre cables.

You have it backwards.

The ethernet cables in a house are copper.

The ISP network lines are fiber.

no the cat7 ethernet cables and cable that goes from the road into the modem is fibre,

CAT7 is not fiber.

The cable that comes into the house (from your ISP) and enters the ONT is.

The ONT takes that fiber signal and interfaces it to ethernet, which is copper.

I remember reading that there'sa  version of cat 6 and 7 that uses fibre, guess I was wrong

Yeah no that would be impossible because the RJ45 jacks on your router and computers have contacts in there to make electrical connection, no optics.

The common setup is fiber to the ONT, then coaxial is used from the ONT to the modem and TV box, and from there Ethernet is typically used for all wired devices. This is how Comcast has it all set up for my house.

That's actually incorrect. In NZ the Government has laid fibre down in every street in almost all cities, so if you pay for fibre, you're getting connected to your ISP via fibre which goes to the fibre line leaving the country

Down here the common setup is fibre to ONT, ethernet to router

🤔 Hmm, wonder why they use an Ethernet connection to the router?

Because the router has an ethernet jack on it to get the signal from the ONT. Coaxial isn't used for internet at all here. The only use for it is for a satellite dish and that's all I've seen it being used for
