Updating modem speed
If I upgrade, it will be a good router to keep as an emergency backup.I'm also thinking of getting a dual band router for future proofing in one sense, but also because there are mobile devices here, or that visit here regularly, that have access to the 5GHz part of the spectrum. What makes you think that your current router/modem combo is limited to 8 Mbps? The first is that according to the data sheet for the router/modem combo that I got from the link you provided, it would be capable of either 8 Mbps, 1.5 Mbps, 12 Mbps, or 24 Mbps downstream…depending on what DSL connection is used (i.e. Now, as I understand DSL (and my understanding of the deep technical info is limited), it is not just as simple as which connection type you use…as I understand it, your distance from the exchange will also impact whether (aka ADSL1) or ADSL2 actually gets you a better download throughput (aka "speed").Get the Internet speed you need with a better understanding of how Internet speed is measured.Once you have learned more about how Internet speeds are measured and what factors are involved, you will soon be ready to find a high-speed Internet plan that’s right for you and the diverse needs of your digitally-connected household, such as Internet speeds for gaming, streaming, and more.I guess I need to speak with the ISP directly to answer the question more accurately (are all ADSL2 in 'selected areas' etc.
There are a number of factors that can affect Internet speeds or your connection to the Internet.Perhaps you want consistently fast speeds, even during peak hours of Internet usage.Take all of these factors into consideration when selecting an Internet service plan.Broadband Internet can be provided by cable operators, telephone companies, or high-speed Internet service providers.Broadband Internet is one of the fastest Internet options available across the nation today.
