Maximum internet speeds on GFiber

Understanding how fast your devices can go is important — and varies by each individual connected tech device you’re using.

First things first: You can get the fastest possible internet speeds with a wired ethernet connection. But the reality is that most of the time, you’ll likely be connected to the internet wirelessly (otherwise known as being connected to a Wi-Fi network).

When you’re connected to Wi-Fi, your speeds depend on a variety of factors, including the GFiber equipment you have, the internet plan you’re on, the distance you are from your router and the Wi-Fi standard of your connected device.

Expected Wi-Fi speeds per Wi-Fi standard

The following chart describes the approximate download speeds you’re likely to get on a variety of Wi-Fi devices under optimal conditions,* assuming you’re on our 1 Gig plan or higher. 

Wi-Fi Standard Wi-Fi Speed
Wi-Fi 4 Up to 200 Mbps
Wi-Fi 5 Up to 500 Mbps
Wi-Fi 6 Up to 800 Mbps
Wi-Fi 6E ** Up to 1.6 Gbps

* With line of sight to the router, without interference and with a compatible Wi-Fi 6E device.
** Applicable to 2 gig plans or higher. Check plan availability at your address. 

Device Guide

As we noted above, your Wi-Fi speeds can vary by the type of device you’re using. 

Think of it this way: While the speed limit on the highway (your internet plan + router’s Wi-Fi standard) may be 70 MPH, if your car (your device) can only go 50 MPH, you won’t be able to reach maximum speed.

To understand your specific connected tech device’s Wi-Fi speed capabilities, we created the Device Guide***.
