    Ive got the new 50Mbs Broadband Phone Tv package with UPC.
    When i use the internet with the cable plugged in i get between 42Mbs - 55Mbs Download speed. But when i use it Wireless i get between 10Mbs-15Mbs. Is this about right or could there be a signal problem.
    All in all im very happy with my package but just making sure that speed wireless is the norm.

    For now it is.
    Best way to connect and get good transfer rates is to use a J45 cable connection.
    Better yet is to use a fiber optic cable. Then again when ISP's promote they have 40 Mbps it's assuming the whole network is fiber optic but rarely is.Just more sales hype. Working for Stanford U for two years... The whole network is 100% fiber optic. Blinding fast
