    My ISP increased the bandwidth a little bit.

    I was very happy to hear about the local ISP had FttH when we moved here. Then I was sad over the pricing since they wanted $500 a month for the top tier service.

    They just lowered that price and now my service is AWESOME! Finally! So I'm getting their top tier service for $95 w/a few discounts.

    Out of curiosity, what is the speed as per your subscription with your ISP.
    Is that a 1Gbps subscription?

    Reason for asking is that somewhere someone told me that the actual speed of a 1Gbps subscription will never be 1Gbps but a little less, let's say, 950Mbps or so, because of some sort of 'overhead' (?)

    The service is actually listed as "1000 MB" synchronous.

    "Overhead" is usually on the end user's side. When saturated, it takes a reasonable amount of processing and cpe simply doesn't get it done. If that is what you mean?

    On the other hand, I cheat! w/dedicated pc as a firewall!

    Thanks.
    Reason for asking is the following. I have a 800Mbps subscription. Speedtest, see a few posts back.
    I always get a bit more, say 825-850. My subscription includes some bonus features (like phone, free of charge in Europe).
    My provider also offers a 1Gbps subscription. However, that is a different package, without the free of charge stuff.
    The all-in fee would be significantly higher then.

    I did consider the 1Gbps subscription, until I someone, in some forum, indicated that technically one would never get this 1Gbps anyhow, maybe 950 or something. Hence such a small improvement (about 100Mbps), considering the much higher subscription fee, would hardly be worthwhile considering.

    A Google image-search on 'speedtest 1gbps' indeed shows that, with a very, very few exceptions, most of the results are below the 1Gbps.

    My provider is working towards a new generation fiber : XGS-PON with max. 10Gbps. They are currently starting to roll out 8Gbps (8200Mbps up/down). Have not seen real life speedtests though.

    OTOH significant hardware upgrades are necessary then, like Wi-Fi 6, or better, the latest Wi-Fi 7, the most expensive routers, motherboards, etc. Probably most hardware currently in use are not capable to make use of this speed.

    Yes, this is true. The cost to upgrade is significant in that scenario. I went, from the same company mind you, from 50mbps for $75 a month, to 1gbps for $95 a month. Adding a discount makes it end up the same price as the 50mbps subscription. No brainer!

    But, yes, I see the same behavior in my system. I get, consistently, 950Mb/s. I've been tuning this NIC and it's getting a little better.


    *** Edit ***
    I do believe this company is using a gpon cpe. This a simple unit that converts x fiber (they won't tell me what it is!) into ethernet. However, I've seen this network connection burst real high for cat5e, but that may have been a miscommunication between my monitor and the NIC. I use a html/js monitor and it's not the most accurate tool. Soon, I hope for a DAC connection because they "won't" provide a direct fiber connection to a sfp+ 10G module. I could match their system but they won't divulge their type of fiber.
