Re: Feedback for IDM

Got Fiber from idm/cyberia, I live in Beirut and wss expecting something like 150-200mb/s as they advertise "up to 300mb/s". But I get a max of 80mb/s in the morning at 1m from the modem, and 55mb/s at night.
They pretend we have the best box in our building
So is it normal that speed is under 100mb/s?
Or the nokia g120f modem is somehow limited and coupling a wifi router over ethernet could make a difference?

It's normal, that's their speeds.

I remember Ogero chairman once saying that Ogero is by defaut capping the FTTH speeds to 50 mbps so that higher speeds dont cause users to consume their quotas in no time. He added that FTTH users who want higher speed can call Ogero and ask the speed cap to be lifted.

Probably IDM is doing the same? 50-80 Mbps is FTTC speed not FTTH

Re: Feedback for IDM

From what I know, 50Mbps is the max that they offer. Now when doing speed tests, it does reach above that considerably (like 70-80) but Ogero employees all tell me that they cap it to a commercial offer of 50Mbps.

Now myself on another hand have managed to run a speed test by wire from the modem directly at 400Mbps. Yes, 400Mbps in Lebanon with Ogero's fiber optics. But, if they do monitor the circuits, they will catch it right away so I decided to not mess with it since I want to keep my service.

I don't think I'd be able to simply act stupid here and tell them "I don't know what I am doing, I am simply browsing the web" because it takes skills to unlock the speed. My understanding is that they cap the bandwidth speed on the end client device (your modem). Mine was reset to factory by me and configurations were manually entered by me again so I did not include any cap limiter for the BW.

Thanks

At the beginning i had +100Mbps using FTTC then after a few months suddenly the current speed changed to 50Mbps while the max speed  still 100+, i think it is from ogero side since no setup was made to the router and i have non ogero router VR-900

It could be possible that they have smartened up and added bandwidth limiters on their circuits. I mean, normally this is how a service provider should be policing their customers.
