A few days ago I signed up for Gigablast, this is DOCSIS not fiber. I bought a new modem, Motorola MB8600, and have yet to see anything close to 1 Gbps. Today a service technician came out and using his meter direct into the modem tested my connection at about 950 Mbps. While he was here, I then plugged my laptop directly into the modem and conducted another speed test from the Cox website. The speed test was right about 300 Mbps connected to my laptop with a 1000 Mbit NIC and a CAT6 cable. I get the same results once I pass traffic through my router.
The technician told me it was likely my equipment. This makes no sense to me as the equipment I tested with was a direct connection to the modem. I had high hopes for a Gbit connection, however this is quite disappointing and seemingly not worth the difference in the bill if I can't get decent results.
I've seen several other posts very similar to this same situation. What's going on Cox?
I had a couple a little faster, and some slower, but this is about average.
Yes, as I put in my original post it was tested direct to the modem with a CAT6 cord. No change for several days now, max is about 300 Mbps.
Here's the connection data from my modem. See any issues?
