I'm currently on the 100/20 fibre plan on 2Degrees. I'm using a Fritz 7360 802.11n 2.5Ghz router.
The interface states my device is connected to the router at 130Mbps. However my when I do a speed test I'm maxing out at 42.92Mbps downstream speed. I also notice at the start of the speed test using the speedtest app, it starts at 89Mbps then quickly declines down to 39-43Mbps.

Is this normal for WiFi. I don't expect to get 90Mbps over wireless but oughtnt the speeds be higher than 42Mbps. Would an upgrade to the Fritz 7490 help?

Use gigabit Ethernet for best performance.

If that's not possible, use 5ghz Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi speed is variable and is out of the ISPs control.

why is this in the 2D forum?

 

~42mbps is about the max speed for 65 or 72mbps wifi.

Okay so things seem to be different now. Not sure why happened. But speeds are much improved over WiFi
