Plan changed but the wiring change hasn't happened yet.

I have it connected to an Ubiquiti Edgerouter X - but connecting the ethernet directly doesn't make a difference. Download jumps from 400 to 600 ~ probably means download congestion I guess from the switch I'm connected to.

Can you try downloading some large game from Steam and check whether you can Max Out? Steam seems to have servers in Chennai. Also can you post the fast.com speeds.

Steam (insurgency game, it's free right now so go ahead and grab it while it's available)

Download jumps from 400 to 600 as said earlier, it most likely will be higher and stable after fiber termination. Will keep you folks updated. Speed tests will likely use all of my FUP this month lol.

^ I'd like to see those as well please. Preferably ones after 6pm, when it's peak traffic. I'm also interested in seeing what they installed at the house, equipment wise.

My installation ticket is still pending with ACT; even though the plan has been changed, fees have been paid (including installation!), etc. I will try to escalate and try to get the dates extended. When you think about it, I got the plan in the middle of the month (but I will have to renew again next month beginning as usual). They assume this $ covers this whole remaining month only but I paid for the full month. That's BS.

Anyway, here are some speedtest results. My area has a power cut (and when I took the tests) so you can subtract a little bit on the Download side considering I'm still in a shared switch.

Chennai : (ACT / Airtel servers)

All tests taken at 7PM, local area without power. (not whole Chennai, so congestion wise I still get decent speeds elsewhere).
