I recently had Fios installed with a triple play package. I am supposed to get 1 Gigabit of internet speed Upload/Download. i only receive about 30GB Upload/Download on my Surface Pro 3 and Iphone/Ipad Devices. I have had 2 techs here and they have no answer. anyone ever experience this? what do you do?

Wifi is not going to be anywhere near the up to speeds of 940/880 

which although not true gigabyte 1024/1024 but the constraints cannot max out the speeds.

 

however your really low speeds even under wifi 30 is not good.

call 1-800-VERIZON and tell them to test your connection from their end and then have them tell engineering to provision your gigabyte speeds.

The above link is the only speedtest Verizon Fios accepts. It's a proprietary network and the test must be run via a desktop or laptop directly connected via ethernet to their router. See what the results are that way.

 

Good Luck

I'm having the same issue (21.2 Mbps download/3.66 Mbps upload); however, if I bypass the Verizon-provided router and plug the cable from the wall directly into the back of my PC, my speed tests much higher (300/200). What could be causing this?

#1 When you were behind the router:

 

a) Did you use a wired connection?

 

b) No one else was using the connection?

 

c) Parental Controls on the router was off?

 

#2 What is the exact brand and model of the router?
