No this is with their 50mb package, they doubled everyones speeds so technically I suppose yes it is but I only pay for the 50mb.

@op - go powerline, or do what I did and run a 30m flat CAT6 outside your house and through windows, gigabit EVERYWHAR

I agree with you run a cable outside of your house.

Just done the speed test:



This is actually considerably better than it usually is, generally it is really inconsistent over my wifi.

While playing War Thunder (it has a head up download speed and packet loss) my packet loss can be as high as 40%....not ideal to say the least!!!

Anyway I feel that with the powerline adaptor, the signal will be much more consistent. Also I wont have to compete with my brother for wifi.....the BT home hub apparently gives priority to Ethernet devices. As far as I can tell, he watches crap American TV through Netflix constantly, while also playing Xbox online.

Thank you to everyone who suggested the powerline solution. It is atop my list of things to do tomorrow.

Cheers

What you're talking about with the wifi cards is NIC teaming. It's normally done through drivers, so both the cards have to support it. However it's normally for ethernet. I agree that a powerline adapter is cheaper and better. Or just running some ethernet cable through the wall if you're handy with that sort of thing thumb.gif

Not my house unfortunately buddy.

The way I would have to route the cable would look messy (complicated wall innards, so my parents say).

Apparently my parents would rather have a clean looking house than a happy son!!! I guess at 21 I should be moving out anyway!!!
