I upgraded to PureFibre 1.5 GB but speed remains 1GB

It is a simple set up, one hard wired computer and Cat6 cable. Telus support not very helpful. I'm confused - did all the restarts etc... Any suggestions ?

@MariuszStepien Wrote: which should support connection up to 10GB

 

No sorry, it only supports a 1Gbps connection... Cheers...

A number of caveats on installing 1.5Gbps internet:

1. Telus says that the 1.5Gbps is cumulative i.e you'll see a total of 1.5Gbps download amongst all your devices. Not necessarily on a single device.

 

2. Some of us have created systems that can, and do support the total bandwidth on a single connection.

 

3. Undertaking the creation that supports a single connection is not for the faint of heart. You require additional hardware, and some knowledge to obtain these speeds.

 

My suggestion would be to have a gander at the following YouTube videos' for an idea of what may be involved with what you want to achieve.... Cheers...

What is the speed limit of your network card on your computer? Likely 1GB.

@FuzzyLogic Likely 1GB.

 

Thank you for this... I checked my reply and noticed that I had plum forgot to mention this point... Cheers...

My Ethernet - 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet (RJ-45 connector) - which should support connection up to 10GB
