Paying for 300Mbps but only getting 100

Hi,

I have a Netgear CM700, which supports the Cox Ultimate package. However, I never seem to get more than 100Mbps down. I'm not sure what the issue is, but if I'm paying $100/month, I'd like to get what I'm paying for. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Does your computer's Network Interface Card support speeds over 100Mbps?  This thread shows how to check.

    This is Cox's fault and most cox customer support staff are unaware and don't really know whats going on and are just doing what the higher-ups tell them to do. On this forum - https://forums.cox.com/forum_home/internet_forum/f/internet-forum/25474/finally-admitting-they-screwed-up some guy was able to squeeze the right information out of a technician. https://drive.google.com/file/d/12VKXPFY6ff9JkgCzCcmhBKIRFsP77JmX/view The best thing we all can do right now is to file an FCC complaint like some people are saying and asking your neighbors who have Cox to file one too.

      So we need to file complaints with the FCC because too many people are connected at one time?  What are they going to do, cure covid and send everyone back to work/school?   This is reality for right now.  There are more people using the home internet systems 10x as much as they did 2 months ago.  Between almost all kids at home gaming, parents working from home, families connected to online television/movie/streaming video nearly all day and most students now being forced to do homework online rather than in class, the network is pushed to the max.  I can't enjoy my two favorite online games because the servers are over crowded which causes speed and ping problems for everyone.  Accept the temporary reality and try to make the best of it.

        True.  Some people are just too selfish, decadent, spoiled for anything other than their own perceptive.  If you don't like it, stop paying for it.

    Where are you measuring 100 Mbps...modem, LAN port, WiFi, USB, MoCA?
