anything over 11 would be higher than the lightning 10 plan. I've seen customers on wifi get around 15 with lightning 25. especially apartments. Interference must be insanely high.
Up until recently, my tests on my work laptop at customers homes on lightning 10 achieved a best of 9.7-9.9 but never 10. They must've changed it as now I see over 10. About 11 tops.
Do you have more than one computer to test with? If you get full 25 on one, then you know it's working ok. Maybe try uninstalling & reinstalling the network card driver on your computer. I've had that correct it sometimes. Could be a bad patch cord. Maybe even a bad modem, but unlikely.

My computer is connected to my Pace WiFi Internet Gateway with a 4 ft ethernet cable.
On Thursday the tech initiated a ticket to reprovision my modem. Since then I've conducted several speed tests because I discovered a greater variance in the test results. My best result is:

No, single line service on vdsl2 always syncs at 35 mbps, or in the case of pair bonding 17 mbps per pair. It's the old adsl modems that used to run at 7 mbps but would drop down from line issues.
It sounds like a provisioning issue. We're supposed to test speeds before leaving and call in to have them confirm it's provisioned for 25.
Are you wired or wireless? How far from the modem?

cslusarc, I took a look at Google Maps and if you are on De Vries and the node is on Gateway, you may not be able to get 25 Mbps due to the distance.
I would call in and discuss your situation to see if your line is actually provisioned for 25 Mbps. They should be able to tell you the profile you are on, which node you are connected to and the distance.
It's also possible that your modem was provisioned for a higher speed, but is falling back to 10 Mbps because the line is having too many errors and can't handle the higher speed.

|cslusarc||Dr Dave, When I input my telephone number they give me options for Lightning 10 (@ $56/month) and Lightning 25 (@ $63/month). I'm currently paying the Lightning rate but my internet gateway (Wifi Modem/Router combo) has been provisioned for Lightning 25 speeds for a trial period.|

cslusarc, I moved your post to this existing thread. Based on your previous posts in this thread, it sounds like you are quite far from your node, so there may not be much else MTS can do to give you a faster speed. It looks like the pair bonding basically doubled the speed that you had with a single line.
Did you discuss the speed problems with the installer when he was there? It is probably worthwhile to give MTS a call, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. On a good note, you should be able to downgrade your speed to 10 Mbps and keep the pair bond if that's the fastest speed they can physically give you.
Out of curiosity, what plans are available when you put your info in the internet lookup?

Upgraded today to Lightning 25
I just upgraded today from Lightning to Lightning 25. Before I upgraded I was getting 4-5 Mbps and I was not satisfied with the speed I was getting. The tech just left after he installed the pair bond and Pace internet gateway.
I just did 3 tests on speedtest.net I am now getting 11.5 Mbps down.
Will MTS tech support be able to give me more speed if I call in?

|Mozza||I run an FTP server, an HTPC connected through Plex and a small Minecraft server from home. Never have I run into an issue. The IP address changes every two weeks or so, but I just run NoIP to get around that.|

Is anybody using home monitoring web cameras while on MTS internet?
Last time I checked (some 6 months ago) they still had this no-home-server rule.
And that meant IP change on the external interface the moment you attempt a connection from the outside...
That is the only reason I'm with Shaw for years...

instead of making multiple posts quoting everyone I will say this. So much happier right now ($55/month savings for three months not withstanding)
Speedtest.net results not withstanding (found them at tolerable levels but not showing as good as Shaw's results)
But web browsing speeds are more than fast enough. Streaming video is excellent. I don't have Netflix so I cannot comment on that service. NNTP is the same as what I was getting on Shaw with the odd occasion I am hitting 5.6MB/s to 5.8MB/s
Shaw was consistent at 5.5MB/s
I am in St. Boniface for reference.

|mrgordos||Absolutely false in my experience. All I can tell you is that my personal experience going from Shaw to MTS was completely positive, and I couldn't be happier with the speeds and also the lack of problems that I have received since switching. I, as well as other customers of Shaw had problems with trying to access YouTube as well as other sites that people on the Shaw forum were saying had to do with the way Shaw was routing connections to those sites, and have never had these problems, or any problems with Netflix since coming over to MTS in April.|

I read (somewhere) that people who went from Shaw to MTS noticed that buffering for Netflix takes longer on MTS than on Shaw.
True? or False?

dm_4u, here's the thread where people are discussing the Lightning 50 plan:
