Correct. The best case throughput of this router is 55 Mbps. As you know, it will also depend on distance and interference. The law of diminishing returns applies when it comes to wireless data rates. You'll need a Rs. 4000 router to get 100 Mbps. Rs. 8000 router to get 125 Mbps and probably a Rs. 15000 router to get 150 Mbps. Actual real life data rates will be less than a third of manufacturer specifications at higher speeds.
Thank you! Final couple of questions:

1) Does the N300 do any better?
2) Is Netgear the way to go? What about TPlink/DLink etc?

The N300 is marginally better. TPlink and DLink make good routers as well. If you want a future proof router, get a dual band AC gigabit one. One with a minimum theoretical throughput of at least 1200 Mbps with beam forming tech built in.

Try writing to helpdesk.chn@acttv.in with your full address. They are usually very prompt when it comes to new connections. Assuming service is available in your locality. Even if your area is mentioned on their website, it may take a while to come to your particular street.
