If you are not getting desirable speeds, you will want to check your signal strength. You can do this by following the steps on page 4 of your setup guide. Below is a link to the setup guides for our most common devices:
Check your signal levels and ensure they are within the optimal range. If they are not, relocate your device until they are. NOTE: You may have to increase the height of your equipment.
Also, as you have a shared speed among all of your devices, when having multiple devices sharing a set speed of bandwidth you will notice a drop in speed due to your internet usage. As you may know, the speeds set on our network are not guaranteed and may vary based on your situation.
