I am using cable to connect. Paying for 28 Mbps, but only usually get around 12 Sad I am not even sure why either. I know they throttle during peak hours (it's supposed to be 14 around peak hours, and 28 every other time of course), but I just get even less during that time.

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
