200mb package, only getting 40mbp

Just activated our package today for the 200mb. However the highest we have got per device is between 30 and at the best 50. Does anyone know if there is something wrong as its no where near 200 on average. Thanks

Yes. Even standing next to box is around 40 to 50 but the main devices I use are in the next room.

that maybe all your devices support or you could have uncontrollable interference from nearby devices.

What speeds do you get wired?

Sorry. Bit behind on the tech. What does that do. I figured that some of the devices must be getting capped like my 4k tv.

You must confirm that you are getting full speed on a wired (ethernet) device.

This proves it's not your line that's having issues, but your devices.

I've just logged into the router and managed to change my TV to 5 ghz. So now it's gone from 40mbps to 170mbps.
