This is extremely frustrating. Am i missing something, with gigapower so slow on the download, but quick on the browse, and 300MBPS on the ATT.com/speedtest? It's taken 1 hr + to download a 942 MB file. That's not what the advertising says.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You have to realize that not every website has a 300mb pipe feeding it. You are limited to the bandwidth that the site allows you to use. I've seen this issue even on a 12mb connecting like I have. Not all websites can supply the full speed that you have available to you. The speedtest site obviously can, but the site you are downloading from is not.

I see slowdowns consistently across a variety of big name sites: Google, Youtube, Yahoo, etc... I seem to need to reboot my router daily which does seem to help (or it could just be a sugar pill). No matter how sluggish websites are to load, speedtest always reports above 150-200mbps.
