    Limited fiber download speed in windows 7 full speed in linux


    I moved into a city that has 1gbps fiber and I got it. I set my computer up to run Ubuntu or Windows 7 in the Ubuntu OS I have full speed, like 980mbps but in Windows I can only get around 370mbps, they informed me that it was a know issue which is why they carry around laptops with Ubuntu instead of windows to troubleshoot there system. Anyone have any clue on this, I cant even imagine where to start looking for the setting or fix. Thanks

    1gbps is fantastic. I suspect the Windows problem is a driver problem. Did you check the Windows 10TP. Maybe they fixed it. But then, the really big chunks you can always download with Ubuntu. I envy you, LOL.

    That looks really good. I would have need that last week when I uploaded a 3GB file. On my very expensive but slow connection (like 1Mb/sec upload) that took forever. Have a look at my $55/month misery.

    Too bad we don't have such choices here in my neck of the woods. Our only option is Brighthouse because ATT has no DSL ports and their new service is not yet available here. So we are stuck with those thieves of Brighthouse. And every month I have to call in because their bill is never right.
