Answered question

Why am I experiencing internet lags and extreme loading delays?

I was at 30mbps download speed and experienced lags on my laptop, apple TV and mobile when streaming.
I've upgraded to 60mbps and still experiencing lags and delays.
I've conducted a speed test and I'm showing a 6.84mbps - why am I not getting the 60mbps? I understand peak periods and such, but this is a persistent problem throughout the day. Please help :(

Hi Darren

Sorry to hear you are having internet issues. When we subscribe to an internet plan such as 60Mbps, this is the total available bandwidth and everyone using the same internet has to share it.

Are you connected to the modem by wifi or ethernet cable?

When we are using wifi, there are many factors (including physical distance, interference from nearby devices and even neighbors, etc) which can affect downloading.

The optimal method to test your internet is to restart your modem and connect only your device directly to the modem (via ethernet cable). If you have already tried this setup, please report your findings.

I suppose you are using the wifi?

Try doing a speed test with an ethernet connection.

I had drop and delays the first 2 weeks but been fine since then. Ttry a factory reset on the modem I think that is what worked for me.
