Did you see anything about a timeline for the west end of Toronto (Etobiocke)? 😉

Re: Any One Have 1Gbps Download1 50Mbps Upload Yet

Wow, thats a loaded question, and I happen to have the same router.  I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but

I don't think that there is any home router on the market that will keep up with 1 Gb/s service, even new very

expensive routers.  The processing capability just isn't there for the vast majority of routers.  I'll refer you to the

smallnetbuilder review of the RT-AC68U:

 

http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless/wireless-reviews/32239-ac1900-first-look-netgear-r7000-a-asu...

 

From that review comes the following throughput data:

 

Wan to Lan:                 754.5 Mb/s

Lan to Wan:                 824.6 Mb/s

Total Simultaneous:   808.0 Mb/s

 

The wifi numbers for the 5 Ghz network test show a max of 350 Mb/s down, ~310 Mb/s up.  The wifi numbers are interesting to say the least.  

 

To run this router and many others for 1 Gb/s service, you can probably say goodbye to using any of the

functions that are available in the firmware, and that happen to require any processing time at all.  They will

definitely cause reduced throughput.  

 

In short, the answer to running gigabit speeds will be something like a pfSense router, using the 68U or other,

as a wifi access point.  There is also the question of whether or not any of the devices on your own network are

really prepared to run at that rate as well.  So, lots of work to thoroughly prepare for gigabit rates.

Just booked an appt to have this set up next week - requires rocket gigabit modem. I still have the CGN3. Hope no issues with bridge mode.

Re: Any One Have 1Gbps Download1 50Mbps Upload Yet

I am in Guelph which, being a town with a big Uni, one would hope is on the list. I don't think I can get the 250 service yet.

 

I DO see more Rogers trucks ( including the contractors) about climbing up poles on the main roads through town so maybe  some more coax is being replced by fibre.

 

I am at the end of a cable so I bet I'll see some activity outside before Gigabit is announced.  I also bet I'll be the first and maybe only customer on my street!

Re: Any One Have 1Gbps Download1 50Mbps Upload Yet

Just installed today with Hitron CGNM-3552-ROG router modem.

 

gigabitspeedtest.JPG

These are speeds on my pc on second floor, modem on main floor. Download speed slowed to 349 Mb/sec on my wife's older PC in same room as cable modem, diretly connected to the modem even with gigabit network card. Speed slowed back to 170 Mb/sec once modem was bridged and connected to my sonicwall router TZ210. So I put it back as gateway and disconnected the sonicwall. I may upgrade to a newer sonicwall if I want to keep my old dual WAN setup.

 

Tech said signal in cable was good.

Nice. 

 

Yeah that is expected. I dont think any consumer modem on the market is capable of 1GBPS WAN to LAN .. ..

Not quite 1G but why the variance with 2 results?
