I hear what you're saying, but I never see the 'up to' speeds. Not even close. It doesn't matter if it's golfmk6, Netflix, or google...it's always slower than advertised and it's honestly ridiculous.Just FYI, a provider can only provide the advertised speed for data on their own local area network and almost all the things you do come from beyond their network. Here is sample text from Mediacom which is much the same as other local providers. This is the text and there is even more detailed text about what you are getting in terms of throughput. They say UP TO a certain speed which would be under ideal conditions. Mediacom can have a fast network but it can only feed you the info as fast as they receive it from sites out on the Internet. That is why they say up to. For instance if the data was coming to the mediacom network at 100mbps and you have a 100mbps plan that would be ideal but not likely to ever happen nor is it necessary for most purposes. Usually there are many users for any given service and you get the data at whatever speed the sending server has available. I have over simplified what really happens but buying a 100mb plan doesn't mean you are going to see all data come to your computer at that speed. Only under ideal conditions which of course would hardly ever occur.
