Is anyone's Telus internet faster now?

I'm on a 15 Mb/s plan. My downloads previously capped around 1.7 MB/s. They've recently gone up to 1.9 Mb/s.

You're just finally getting what you pay for...

1.9MB/s = 15.2 Mb/s

and the internet usage cap seems weird too with telus.

One thing that often gives people confusion is the difference between a Megabyte (used for file size) and a Megabit (used for download speeds). People often assume that a download speed of 1 Megabit per second (1 Mbps) will allow them to download a 1 Megabyte file in one second.

Heres mine with Telus25 package.
Seems slow as f*ck especially with my telus router about a meter away from me.

Signal dies off even more when im upstairs. Basically impossible to use with ps4 for streaming purposes with this crappy wifi.

Any ideas how i can solve my signal issues?

the telus wifi routers are shit. get yourself a separate wifi access point.

No, this is average. How are you getting such high upload speeds?

I had the same problem. Got a PowerLine and it fixed my lagging issues. If you do get one, make sure to get the 2000 gigabit version.

You talking about this one?
D-LINK DHP-701AV Powerline AV2 2000 10/100/1000 Gigabit Starter Kit - NCIX.com

How does it work exactly? Do I just plug it into an outlet and it generates stronger wifi signal? Sorry, I'm not great with computers...

Yeah I got the exact one.one goes into your router and one goes into your computer. It uses the electrical wires in your home to connect to eachother. Like a ether net cable. There's no need to download anything to use it either. Simple plug and play.
