No at first both download and upload where all over the place...EugW wrote: ↑Jan 9th, 2019 11:24 amDid you ever get 50 Mbps up consistently? Do you get even 30 Mbps consistently?
I often get over 900 Mbps down but only about 15 Mbps up in near-peak periods on a 1000/30 Mbps Rogers connection.
However, it doesn't seem to make much difference for what I do 98% of the time. I'm curious though. How much upload does a MS Remote Desktop Connection or Citrix VPN need, if I'm the client? My understanding is that the client needs very little upload bandwidth, but way more download bandwidth. 25 Mbps Fibe would sometimes slow my VPN connection to a crawl if I had Netflix also running, but it hasn't been an issue on Fibe Gigabit or Rogers Gigabit. (Logons have been a bit slower in the last few days since I've gotten Rogers, but I think that's the host. The actual VPN performance once's logged in is fine.)
The only times upload speed makes a big difference is if I'm uploading batches of photos or other large files somewhere, but i don't do that often. Right now I'm not doing big cloud backups. Maybe if I go that route in the future, I'll have to go back to fibre.
Now I get 30mbps consistently
Yeah, 30mbps is still "fast" and more then enough for most people...
I'm able to stream a 1080p web-dl to my self at work no problem
I know fiber will be better, but I'm still on the fence..
For $10 less a month I can get Bell Fiber + Alt Tv Premium?
Which is great since, I don't need to buy any receivers.. Already have devices..
Just can't find any solid info on quality...
