That's under 100 megabits per second. If you're supposed to be getting 200 megabytes per second, you should call up your ISP and find out why they're limiting you to less than 1/16 of your nominal connection speed.

200 megabytes per second isn't currently even possible for home internet at all, isn't it?
200megabytes per second would be 1600 Megabits per second (1,6gbit/s) and that's (I think) currently not available as home Internet in any country..

And that should tell you that maybe his story about 200MBps ain't all that believable. ;)

It's all about price. Sure, I get nearly 1Gb/s at work - but that's at an IU campus in downtown Indianapolis. That kind of speed isn't available to any home users, and precious few organizations. My home speeds have only ever been about 100Mb/s at most, and that's on a good night (you can't get that speed during the day, but at 3am you have a lot less traffic).

what about google fibre xD

Well tbh you wouldn't need 1Gb/s and usually if you did like for a site or server ect. Why not just buy one :D/>

I get 20 Mbps at home, 137 Mbps at school - according to speedtest. Google Fibre isn't available in my area - it's not available in very many areas in the United States.

I can actually buy faster speeds for my home internet, if I wish to pay for the infrastructure. It's currently limited by the physical connection.

What about cable Internet? I live in a suburb and I think most of the houses have a cable connection, which supports up to 400Mbps :/

It's not so much about the type of cable, or where the cable is, it's mainly to do with the switch and how close it is, I live in a village and the fastest we could get was roughly 1mbps, because the switch was 2 villages away, now we have a switch in the middle of the village and fibre has now been laid, and we can get up to 400mbps.

This is weird.

1. I am in school, and school wifi generally sucks
2. My teacher is showing us a netflix documentary on wifi at the time of the scan, and wifi doesn't suck even then
3. I'm in Rhode Island, not Massachusetts.

Before I was only getting 56kb/s (kilobytes) down and even less up, so this is good as it can get here where I live :(
plus I practically live in a forest and Halifax is closest as it can get (~300 KM away sadly)
and I don't think this really matters, but I'm using Linux running Chromium, and I ain't going to be using flash anytime soon.
