Slow Internet

I am having slow internet. I should have 100MB/s speed, and I only expect 1 or 2 MB/s, but i'm getting 120KB/s! This happens in both wired and wireless internet. The wireless connection is shared with a mac, but it is asleep. What should I do?

Nobody has 100MB/s speed. That's OC3 range costing $40K/mo. Connect one computer directly to you internet modem via Ethernet cable. Go here and measure your speed. Speed Test - dslreports.com If you are not satisfied with this speed and it is not what your internet provider has promised you then demand they make it right.
