17Mb/s slower than 12Mb/s ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys.

So today I just got internet after a month of waiting in our new appartement, and SFR (the internet provider here in France) sent me their new router that they give to everyone in their shops, and I suspect there is a problem, a big one.

You see, SFR has been sold to an other company a couple of months back and since then everything has changed, I know because at my parents house I still have their old router from 2007, and my father said that on the contract it's written that our internet speed is of 12Mb/s but when I download a torrent the download speed is of 2.1MB/s, and here with a speed of 17Mb/s my download speed is of 1.3MB/s.

Is it maybe the routers fault ? Do I need to buy a better one ? Because if it's the case I wouldn't even think, I'd just get an Asus one or whatever.

Thanks in advance guys.

Torrents aren't a great way to show off your download speeds, the speed of a torrent depends on a number of things. Use speedtest to check the up and down speeds of each router.

I did, even before trying on torrents, but I didn't tought it would be of any interest. Still, here I have 11.10 down and 0.9 up, at home I have 13.5 down and 1.1 up. Remember, 17Mb/s here and 12Mb/s at home.
