I thought I was dreaming. I was reading that if you turn WMM off on your router, QOS to off, the speeds greatly increase. I know that one upload has to be incorrect but it showed twice at simular speeds so I must be dreaming.

 

Great speed even better today, or I must be the only person in the neighborhood that has this speed.

What do you get to third party speedtest sites?  I find the Verizon speedtest to be of limited use as it hides from their customers any evidence that they have bottlenecks on the ingress links.

 

I have gigabit connection and to third party sites I consistenly get around 900 Mbps up and down during less peak times of the day.  As I approach the early evening I'm lucky if I can crack 250 Mbps up/down until later in the evening.  It's still good relative to the past but I feel like they mislead their customers about what they are actually able to get using FiOS as they don't advertise it as gigabit only within the VZ network.

Actually at external speedtest sites I get 870/740 which is not gigabyte per se but as I always tell folks the higher speeds from Verizon Fios proprietary speedtest sites are not real world. Also depending on time of day can be lower but not down as low as you posted.

 

I was just amazed since I was messing around with my Nighthawk after a firmware update and bam it was fast. 😀

i thought no other households are on your fios line so therefore the speed is always the same?

?????

i don't see that statement in the thread. Maybe you know something I don't.

in my neighborhood there are still a few homes that use Fios what they have I don't know since it's none of my business.

 

i know I have gigabyte service, and my speeds drop at test sites not of Verizon's proprietary speed test sites. But consistent at their own.
