    Your system is probably not to blame for the slow speed. The ISP is usually the culprit. I too pay for  200 Mbs and get 50 to 80 percent of that for $75 per month.

    I'm only paying for 200 but I get less than 30 sometimes and not always during peak time. Whenever I get those really slooow speeds I call tech support and make them come to my house on a service Call. I have had them out maybe 12-15 times last year and refuse to pay for the service call. I keep track of my speeds and show them its them, not me. Surprisingly, my speeds have got much better, coincidence? I think not!

    Maybe your ISP use broadband, not dedicated.

    You should ask them is it "up-to" or "dedicated"

    It all depends, before you sign up its 200 after your first bill, it "Up to 200". SCANDALOUS!

    I've also seen routers that have much faster speeds over the wifi than the Ethernet. If you use the fing app and do a speed test over WiFi how does that compare to the speeds you get over a wired test?
