Hi guys,




I just moved into a new place, and have VDSL internet while waiting installation of fibre to be completed.


im currently on (, is there any better speed test method?) 20ms ping, 47mbps dowon / 7 mbps up. 2 degree says  that i'm on a 80m plan, which make my connection to be approx. 60% of full speed.


I am not too sure what is causing it but it well might be my old wires. I try all DSL ports in the house still similar result.


my questions are


1. is 60% a good indicator of what im going to get out of fibre?


2. when i switch to fibre, would the old wire system under the house continue to be a factor? should i invest to fix it now?


3. i know most of you mentioned here that most comment slow internet factors are most likely on the user side, is there anything i could do now to find out exactly why and what to improve it?




thank you so much

No at all relevant or linked.

Fibre is laser driven optical. No bad wires or signal drop off.
If you order a 100/20 fibre plan(for example) then that should be what you get.
