Broadband speed not what it should be

Hi,  I've run a couple of tests against speedtest.net and my BB speed in maxing out at around 90Mbps when it should be nearer 200Mbps.  Can somebody please look into this for me?

 

Cheers,

Mark.

To add to jb66, 90Mbs is a common hardware bottleneck. You need full gigabit equipment to get speeds above 90Mbs.

Have you checked to see if your computer can handle more than 90?

Re: Broadband speed not what it should be

Hey folks, thanks to me having to bypass my gigabit switch due to my new pup chewing through the power cable I'm now going direct into my PC from the router and have 200Mbs speeds so good shout all.  Looks like there was something not quite right with the switch.

Thanks all for the steer.
