Ookla, the company behind Speedtest.net and NetIndex.com, has launched two new indices on Net Index that show the relative costs of broadband services worldwide, on a per Mbps basis, and how close delivered bandwidth approaches promised bandwidth.
I am a noob when it comes to networking, but I just hooked one of my computers directly up to my modem wired and got 93 mbps download, but when I connect through connect through wireless N I get 30 mbps max. Wireless N spec is 300 mbps so why doesn't it hit the same speeds as the wired connection? Yes I am running 5Ghz.
Anybody switch to TWC's 2/1 $14.99 plan? I'm on the internet quite a bit, but I really can't fathom how this would not work well for me? I do my fair share of torrent dling, and youtube watching, but even that seems completely possible at 2 Mbps down. My current cap is 15 Mpbs....but I just did a speedtest and only got around 5 Mbps.
