300mbps

How can anyone even use this speed.

 

Is it worth it as even with 802.11ac, not as if it will make a difference so what is the point of it..benefits?

To download stuff quicker.



For most people its pointless. For the impatient / heavy downloader, its an good option.

Very true.  A large number of users with high speed connections will never use it to its full potential.  I suspect a large number of customers probably use around 10-15% of their connection speed when they are on the 100mb and above packages.  There are a large number of customers that basically use their connection for nothing more than surfing the web, emails, social media, streaming services and the odd download here and there.  All of which means they probably use 10-20mb speeds most of the time.  200mb and 300mb are designed for houses where there are lots of users, students for example who will use the connection at the same time.  Its also designed for those who download a lot of big files or updates etc that just want it asap.

Re: 300mbps

The match is about to start and you need to get that massive update quickly?

For me a decent upload speed would be much more attractive.

So far I can't see the point of a lot cloud backup offerings apart from backing up a few selected files..

Re: 300mbps

this is what Im thinking....reason is i went from 30 years ago think 2012 to 60 then 100 then 120 then 152 now 200...

But I cant see how 200 even gets used..

laptpop/sky Q/ps3/ps4/Tv/ even downloads are limited sometimes in speed. Id probably be the same on 120 as 200.

 

Even say 5 people...200 vs 300 cant see the point...just wondering to upgrade or not u c

Re: 300mbps

I have 200, well sometimes I do, it does get used in my house due to me, my wife and 2 kids multiple xbox, tablets, phones, laptops, we stream 4k to multiple devices. I also have a couple of servers in data centres with gigabit connections I transfer large files to and from so sometimes 200/12 is limiting....

Re: 300mbps

Oh right...

4 people here, but mainly just me using the net as no1 is hardly ever in.

Even with 4k and downloading files, are they not limited by the device or servers..eg my tv is expensive but I know by look at my asus (SH3 modem mode)router that its not using more than around 40mbps ish....
