Hi all,

I just today got spark fibre. Am on their unplanned. I'm happy with the speeds I get on the ethernet which is about 800mbs download. My WiFi is only about 40mbs through an apple airport, pretty much similar with the provided huawei spark provided.

Can these wifi speeds get any faster? I'm sorry if it's a dumb question.

Thanks for your help

yep can get higher, but you will likely need to get rid of the airport

Can get much faster than that, but do you really need it on your portable devices?

 

unifi HD AP will give great speeds to devices that support 160MHz

Real world wifi speed will also depend on the notebook/tablet/phone  , and the signal.

 

Test with a device that supports 5.8Ghz wifi , and test it in the same room as the new router with the airport turned OFF .
Make sure you are connecting to 5.8 , not 2.4Ghz wifi .
