Very slow speeds for 1gbps

Joining in

Hey everyone,


I finally got time to look into my slow speeds.


For the last 2 months my speeds have been awful.... I've tried different ethernet cables, rebooting router, factory i reset and speed stays the same.

I don't know what to do, hopefully I can get some help






93.3 Mbps is about the max that you will see via a computer with a 100 Mb/s link rate or 100mb/s port. Does you computer have an 100Mb/s port ? Are you using a cable that is old and out of spec i.e. causing the speed to drop from 1000 to 100 Mb/s ? Have you crossed a network switch or used Powerline adaptors that have 100 Mb/s ports ?

The upstream at 71.9 Mbps suggests there might not be enough Upstream channels connected to deliver more speed. This is still a work in progress for some areas, work that was slated to complete by the end of 2023.


Speed test the service to a Router mode Hub(3/4/5) + your device with the link below.

Once the test begins click on: Run full test to see all the stats.

The speed at the Hub should reflect your subscription.

One step at a time. The obvious downstream issue may be causing upstream issues and should be resolved before making any assumptions on what may or may not be wrong there.
