SpeedTest Results. Mine is Telstra Brisbane and is supposed to run at 100 down and 2.5 up. As you can see that is not happening and has not been happening for at least a week. I suspect that Telstra is "breaking" again in my suburb. Nothing of course will get fixed until it is "absolutely broken" as per usual. The cable connection has been quite reliable though for the last few months apart from a couple of 2-3 day outages caused by weather!!!!!
The first 1 is with the Ethernet to Thunderbolt disconnected.
Results 2 is with my Ethernet from the Telstra modem running into a ethernet connection on the MAC display. The Other 3, is running into a Thunderbolt connection on a Belkin hub.
This is running into the local (Brisbane) Telstra server. Go other than this and the world slows dramatically (performance testing wise). Not that the two ethernet connections are always alive.
All done btwn 8am and 8.30 am 18/8/15
Note that I am getting some speed variation. Its not due to my variation on LAN connection either although the Thunderbolt connection should work slightly better as its thunderbolt to the hardware (MacBook) (10GIG/sec) and should max out the ethernet connection.
Until recently I have been getting the 100/2.5 as claimed by Telstra as their "High Speed" cable service.
P.S. as an aside. I have 2x Apple Airport modems (latest models). They connect (to each other), via WiFi at up to 1300 Mbts/s with frequency sharing. They are in separate rooms. The WiFi travels through two walls (obviously non solid) .
Whoops 1300Mbts (edit)
