when i bought it they sait it is faster-_-


It probably is but there are numerous things that will play into your speed. One common occasion is during Peak hours your ISP will cut your bandwidth down.

Plus, I'm downloading the Mass Effect 3 demo right now, which is slowing things down quite a bit.

I wasnt doing anything at that time and got that speed. Wi fi off on iPhone, EVERYTHING. hopefully it'll sort itself out tomorrow

Edit: Its actually a bit better now, still about 1.5mb/s off its usual speed.

if anyone actually wants FiOS, don't. they absolutely suck, only way to achieve these speeds are during middle of the day and hardwired. If you are wireless you get around 5 mb/s at most. I have achieved in the upwards of 50mb/s during the middle of the night how ever hardwired on here with 3 ping.

Want to swap? It amazes me that parts of the world can have decent speeds (I believe over 20mb/s dl to be decent) and some even upto a few hundred and I sit here in the UK (One of the most developed countries in the world) with about 3mb/s.

You need a better wireless router then obviously the one you have is shit. I have a few friends that have FiOS and achieve excellent speeds during the day using both wired & wireless. I wouldn't complain because your ping is almost perfect your speeds is faster than 93% of the country. Also providers cut bandwidth during peak hours to maintain stability.

It doesn't matter if you speed is faster than the rest of the country, If you pay for something you should get it constantly, especially high paying customers who pay for FiOS.

I don't think you understand what I said. He's complaining about his internet speed during peak hours, in the United States ISP's cut bandwidth during peak hours. I told him he shouldn't be complaining during peak hours because he's still faster than 93% of the country. He also said that he maintains the speed he paid for during night which is obvious because majority of people are asleep. Also FiOS is NOT high priced it's bundled (TV/Internet/Phone), high priced is T3.

FiOS isn't the high tier unlimited stuff? Disregard what I said then, typically fibre optic is the best (atleast its the best you can get here)

Nah FiOS isn't high tier unlimited stuff, it's probably the best before fiber optic, but Not many areas have fiber Optic's yet (America). FiOS is a around $160 a month with just internet only, but if you bundle it I think its around $100-120. If FiOS was offered around where I lived. I'd most likely switch because my max speeds around here is 15mbps. 99.95 monthly (bundled)

Look at it like this, you don't want to fuck a chick and finish in 30 seconds now do you?

Your ping isn't bad so that's the plus side, but I don't know what you pay for a packing in Dubai.

Guess you're right. I have no idea either, and I don't feel like asking.

But I think it's paying for 16Mbps DL speed, 1Mbps UL speed at a cost of roughly $150/month. I have no idea how that price relates to everyone elses, but with a wired connection I have roughly 12/13mbps DL speed so it's not that bad for what package I have.

XD, I'm on Talk Talk and get about 10 - 12mb, which is about the max for my area's shitty exchange anyway. I would honestly say BT is the worst ISP I've ever had, with Sky coming in at a close second. Talk Talk isn't all that bad, you need to make a phonecall if your speeds are that low, Marn.
