    • What’s your plan download max advertised as?   i noticed on Nov 18, four of your tests were close to 200, and the rest very low. We’re all the tests taken on the same machine? Are you testing via wireless or Ethernet. If wireless, see if things behave the same using Ethernet if you can
    • Been going crazy trying to figure out why the test is so much slower here than everywhere else. I know that here it is a linear test and other sites will skew the numbers/closer servers to beef them up a bit but the difference seems too high for everything to be ok. I've gone through the troubleshooting guides everywhere with no luck. Here are some results from just now.    Testmynet GoogleFiber speedtest.net AT&Ts speed test (my ISP) shows 900+ ... lol.    So any advice for me or is it time to call my ISP ?    Thanks
    • So is it your suggestion to avoid those things in order to "improve WiFi connectivity even with internet basic plans", or are you asking for help to improve your "WiFi connectivity"?     *3rd party devices/routers   Keep in mind that, if one does not have a proprietary WiFi router from their plan provider they must connect a 3rd party router in order to utilize WiFi.     *movie apps that require 3 to 6 Mbps internet speed   If one's provider doesn't supply adequate speed they won't be able to stream movies, regardless of a WiFi or LAN connection.     *simultaneous use of wifi from 6 or more devices   Wholeheartedly agree, as the speed will be divided between devices, and not necessarily evenly.  And if using the 2.4Ghz band, the WiFi itself could be a choke point, depending on the plan's speed.   * unmindful of radio frequencies (i.e. 2.4ghz/5ghz) or lack of info as its reach among others   With the 5Ghz band this is normally not an issue, though its range is considerably less than the 2.4Ghz band.    
    • Subscribers tend to 'overuse' their wifi connectivity though their plans are internet basic by using the following: *3rd party devices/routers *movie apps that require 3 to 6 Mbps internet speed *simultaneous use of wifi from 6 or more devices * unmindful of radio frequencies (i.e. 2.4ghz/5ghz) or lack of info as its reach among others
    • CA3LE,   Actually, I just upgraded my desktop to W10 1809 (clean install) and installed Chrome anew.  It seems to be fine now.  It's likely that resetting it would have done the trick.  Thanks for the advice.  🙂
