    Default Fixed wireless laggard in independent broadband test

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    My brother was getting 3mbps on adsl.
    Now he is on the wireless and gets 25-32mbps.

    He's happy.

    Cherry-picked data in a Chorus sponsored study?
    Certainly not my experience, fixed wireless working well here, 30Mb/s down and 20Mb/s up 40 ms latency and very consistent.

    There's no revelations here. If you are in a marginal area for ADSL and have good 4G coverage it's worth considering, if your ADSL/VDSL gives you 10Mbps+ it probably isn't. If data caps are more important to you than speed also - stick to ADSL.

    I'd agree with the test, the data looks correct.

    I'd really love to see some real information about the traffic management on the 4G fixed wireless. I've found it to be pretty hopeless for anything but basic web browsing and streaming - certainly is it a massive improvement on bad ADSL, and for the type of use it would get from most people, it's fine.

    Do any traffic for a sustained period of time, especially anything ptp and you seem to get slowed down dramatically.
