I currently have an Actiontec C2000A modem/router from CenturyLink that I use with fiberoptic Gb service. When I do speed tests I typically see something like 933 Mbps down and 800 Mbps up. I’m considering purchasing the Balance One Core Router to replace the Actiontec, but I noticed that it has a maximum rated throughput of only 600 Mbps. I have been unable to find a similar rating for the Actiontec.
If I change to the Peplink, does this mean my measured internet download and upload speeds will be “throttled” or “bottlenecked” to 600 Mbps by the Balance One Core, or are maximum internet speeds unrelated to router throughput? I realize that I never actually download a file at 933 Mbps, but it is still nice to see those speed test numbers show up. If my speed tests changed to 600 Mbps down and 600 Mbps up I’d feel like I was cheating myself. Thanks!
