Not sure where to put this..

I live in a semi rural area that does not get the joys of Fiber internet..

I currently have 125MBPS connection that regularly runs closer to 135 with about 6-7 on the upload.. with a cheap leased box (Arries)

They just added a 250MBPS package with a special price and they do offer that special price for current customers with upgrading..

It would cost me roughly $30 more a month..


Everyday stuff and with my son gaming online with mostly Steam and Robolox nothing major
plus tablets and phones that use Wifi while we are at home which on WiFi we get closer to 75-80..


would that upgrade be anything more than a "Hey my internet is 250 meg" thing or will I really see a difference.

First, what model box/modem/gateway do you have? Also, who is your ISP?


I am not familiar with non-US ISP's but assuming you are using cable broadband with EuroDOCSIS (maybe CM820?) with 8 downstream channels with a max download of 343Mbps. Please note that internet speeds are generally given in MegaBITS(Mb) and not MegaBYTES(MB). With how DOCSIS works, it's good for your modem to have double the hypothetical download speed that you sign up for. So a 8x4 tuner modem will be good up to around 170Mbps, anything above that should use a 16x4 tuner modem atleast. I say modem, but there are also wireless gateways and phone/internet models too depending on your needs.

Hi to you lucky people,

Our government updated the system country wide, now the average speed is ( Ha , Ha ) 25Mbps download (or up to 100Mbps, if you wish to pay a fortune), and they are proud of this, with 3 to 5Mbps upload...


Sorry but Australia is in a second rate Internet country ..

Massey do you currently suffer from any bottlenecking at 125mbps download? If not, than you already have your answer, it will only give you bragging rights.. but hey if you find a use for it, it's fair game!
