If you conduct a test of your GigE speeds online, it may top out at 200-300 Mbps. This is not an accurate reading, but actually a limitation of the testing software. Windows computers will test slower than a Mac or a PC running Linux. The most accurate reading for GigE can be achieved on our Speed Test page. Contact us if a wired connection directly from the Optical Network Terminal to a computer with a gigabit ethernet card and no firewall consistently yields obviously low speeds with this test.
