You could have light speed but if you are downloading something from a slow site it doesn't help any. Nothing can arrive before it leaves starting point. It's like driving F1 car in heavy traffic.
Well said, Mike. Some things are just an overkill.
I have the mid-range provider package at $40/mo using Ethernet on the tower and WiFi on the laptop. Never a problem streaming Netflix, YouTube vids, or much trouble with browsing. It's like you say. Some sites are just slow to go.
The next higher package is 75mbps at twice the cost. No way!
