Yeah, I even mentioned that in the chat. Obvoiously I've never seen their system, but I have to imagine that it would be pretty obvious?

My laptop doesn't seem to want to go over 50Mbps.
That's likely a limitation of the laptop. A good laptop or device with a high quality AC wifi chip will get a 600Mbps or higher connection and up to 300Mbps speeds. Drop down to a lower quality or dated AC chip and that will drop significantly to about 1/2 or 1/4 those speeds. A typical wifi N chip will max out at about 75Mbps and G about 25Mbps.

I have the 300 plan. Just checked my 2012 MBP for download speed. Wasn't expecting much after reading your post, but I got 225 download wireless. So can't complain.
