Just boosted my Internet speed, will I see a difference?

#1An0therBKPosted 7/2/2013 11:43:33 PM
For an extra 5 bucks a month, I'm getting cable with on demand and 7 hbo channels for a year as well as........ Faster speed going from 12 Mbps to 50........ I don't care for cable. I got rid of it months ago because its all garbage now. It really is disgusting.... I did it for the speed boost

Will I notice any changes?

No, your speed will significantly drop.

12 mbps to 50 mbps to doesn't make your internet any faster. It just transfers more data simultaneously.

ya what this guy says. It doesn't matter if you have the fastest internet in the world, the servers you connect to usually cap how fast you can take data from them, but this also means more people can use the internet at your home without the internet getting slow, so in the long run it's still good

Lousy, crummy Internet boosters ruining the experience for those of us who want to surf the web legitimately. J/K ;)

Irregardless, for all intensive purposes I could care less if you take me for granite. If given free reign, I'll continue to tow the line so it's a mute point.

In short, yes. It will make your internet run faster. Like people said before: Most servers cap the speed in which you download data, but you might not have been hitting that cap before and you're probably hitting it now.

...I didn't even know those existed.
What speed are you getting from it? Are you actually getting the full gigabit?
