I live in an older section of Ajax in a detached house. Unless the node covers a huge area i dought it would be oversubscribed. Upload are anywhere between 25-30.
With that upload speed on the speed test you should be getting the full download speed via speedtest.net. Make sure you are choosing the Rogers server on the test.

I live in an older neighborhood also. My area was oversubscribed, believe me. But with your upload speed it sounds fine. The beta firmware could help you.

How old is your Mac laptop? Is there anything else you could test with? I would think you could hit 300-400mbps over wifi with something like an iPad or an iPhone. Make sure you use the 5ghz network.

Thanks for all the help. The iMac is pretty old, my first thought was maybe it is a little underpowered but after a midem reset got up to 200mbps. The only other high powered device I have is the PS4 and I was getting between 100-200 on that with uploads around 10-15. On my iPhone and iPad i get between 70-80 down and 30 up.

See, the 30 up is telling me you are getting the full speed of the connection. Your upload speed is capped at 30mbps. I have found that when I run speed tests, if I get 30 up, I get the full gigabit speed down. If my line tested at 100mbps like you are getting, my upload would be showing as 5mbps or something.

I think a visit from a Rogers technician would be of benefit to you. Something is not right.

Are you sure you are using the 5ghz wifi connection with the iPhone and the iPad? Your results sound consistent with a 2.4ghz connection.

Your connection is fine. You need higher end gear to take advantage of it. I have a top end router and I can get 650mbps down on my iPhone. The CODA modem isn't going to give you much more than that.

You're welcome. IIRC my AC86U could get 500mbps over wifi. It's my Netgear R8500 that can do 650mbps.

The new iPhone X will have quad stream MIMO wifi. It can probably do gigabit over wifi.
