Re: [AB] actiontec wireless speed slow
Why would you think the best rate you will get will be 4.2 mbps? Did you make up that number? It could well be much closer to 6 mbps than the 3 mbps you are getting now. (I was on that plan a long time ago and for me it was around 6 mbps.) Note the bps rate is the "raw" rate. After overhead, the rate you get using speedtest will always be somewhat less.
Prices have come down, which is why they are offering a faster connection at a lower rate. The CSR will tell you the price including taxes and that's what it will be. If you get an upgrade, maybe they will give you a promotional rate. You have to work this out with Telus.
The speed of the connection is not dependent on the number of devices. The speed to a particular pc is obviously dependent on how heavily all of the pcs are using the connection. If you're concerned about this, you should upgrade to 6 mbps or whatever and if it's not fast enough, upgrade to high speed turbo.
