Sooo I have purchased internet service recently. I got a 45 Mbps connection (or so I thought), and am currently experiencing problems. The connection is actually really good, but I'm having problems getting the proper speed from the connection i have. The problem comes in when doing actual real world downloading.
This is what a speed test shows up as:
And here is an example of my ACTUAL DL speeds:
My question is simple. Is it possible the ISP is throttling me? or am I expecting too much and my connection is just fine and as it should be. For reference my ISP is AT&T and my area is Dallas, Texas. Thanks in advance any help is greatly appreciated. I've talked to AT&T techs and CSR and they keep trying to explain the difference between a Megabit and a Megabyte to me like I'm an idiot not understanding my actual question. Of course I'm not going to be able download [censored] at 40 MB/s my connection -_-
