Can you go from a gigabit modem to a 10gb router and get 10gb/s ethernet

Recommended Posts

no? If the max speed of the modem is 1gbit, you will get max 1gbit.

 

The local transfer speed between your supported computers will be 10gbit, but the actual internet will still be 1gbit.

 

If you pay for 10gbit, then ask the company for a 10gbit modem.

If you get a 10Gb switch you’ll get the speed you are paying your ISP

Unless you're paying for 10 gb/s, no.

You're also limited by what you're paying for.

Even if you are paying for 10gb, you will still only max out at 1gb due to the modem (1gb as stated)

Not to mention the ethernet port on the computer can also limit it.

My question is just the title

 

Internet will only be 1Gbps. Local network will be 10Gbps for local transfers only.
