I have the Gigabit Conneciton Plan, but can't come close to 940/880Mbps

Hello - I have the following:

  • Verizon FIOS Gigabit Connection (up to 940/880Mbps)
  • Verizon FIOS Quantum Gateway AC1750
  • Desktop computer wired to the router (no WiFi for this particular connection)
  • Cable run of under 50 feet of CAT6 cable from router to computer
  • My desktop does have a 10/100/1000 Mbit Ethernet card.

 

When I run Google Speed test I typically get speeds of between 400-600Mbps download and 100Mbps upload.  

 

Is there anything I can do to get it closer to the stated limits of the plan?  

 

Thank you.

No test site other than the link above is accepted by Verizon Fios.

i have posted this many times that real world test speed sites are not on a proprietary network but have the bottlenecks and congestion and bad hops and rerouting as sites like speedtest net or google and others.

 

i get these numbers almost all the time. See my screen shot attachedAE6D7840-2912-43D9-9FCD-F3A973435741.jpeg
