Achieved line rate vs Maximum line rate

Super Duper Contributor

Just a general query to satisfy my curiosity...


My TalkTalk WiFi Hub black reports the following maximum line rate stats...


Maximum upstream rate (kbit/s): 24391
Maximum downstream rate (kbit/s):102852


My achieved line rates are...


Upstream line rate (kbit/s): 20000
Downstream line rate (kbit/s): 73926


I appreciate that the upstream rate is capped at 20Mb so no problems there, but am I wrong to expect the downstream rate to be closer to the 80Mb cap?


No stability issues or anything like that, just purely my curiosity.


Detailed stats are...

Many thanks.
