The engineer visited yesterday to swap my old Surfboard cable modem for one of the new Cisco ones.
At the end of the install, he asked me to check the internet. I headed to the http://speedtest.telstraclear.co.nz/ and ran the test. I obviously got much better results than previously, but it wasn't 100Mbps. Instead it got about 85Mbps. I asked if that was normal. He commented that was normal and will come down to my router etc. I thought fair enough - it is going through a router and a switch to get to the PC I tested from. It was the best test I could do in a hurry.
Later that day I tried to take this extra equipment out of the equation by trying a laptop (two in fact) connected directly to the cable modem. Even then I was still getting a maximum of 85-88Mbps.
Is this normal? I'm curious what other WarpSpeed users get on http://speedtest.telstraclear.co.nz/
I know I'm never going to get real world downloads going at this speed, but I'm still curious if this is normal.
