    64 Mbps, sheesh if I had that speed watching 4K videos, I'd run out of a data in a week.

    But for some reason on wireless, i get less than 5 mbits but it has a 54mbit connection. Is there something wrong?

    Nothing's wrong with your speed if you have a 54 Mbps WiFi connection. The reason for that 25 Mbps speed test on WiFi is due to WiFi protocol overhead. The real life throughput of a given WiFi connection speed is around 50 - 70 % of the theoretical speed indicated by Windows. You can read more here: Wireless Network Speeds - How Fast Is a Wi-Fi Network?

    To get all that 30 Mbps speed, use Wireless-N protocol and you should be able to get 72 Mbps or higher theoretical speeds. You need a Wireless-N capable router ( e.g. Netgear WNR-2000) and a PC/device that can operate on Wireless-N.

    No I used wired on the test. And also the router does not work with 802.11n. It is 5 years old. Actually, I meant wifi on my android tablet.

    I see. Sadly, 25 Mbps actual transfer rate is the max you can get out of Wireless-G. Nevertheless, it's still more than enough for most internet tasks. There's no need to move to N or AC unless you have a NAS storage that you frequently access using WiFi or you do a lot of huge file transfer tasks between PCs connected via WiFi.

    Sorry about confusing you, but I meant that the link speed is 54mbits for wifi.

    Is there a platform/website I can go to shop around for internet service based on quality and price? kinda like shopping around for insurance.
