$65 Optus Wireless Broadband 200Gb

I fully accept that my speed is totally affected by the volume of current users, but the speed variation is very large - see attached. Is this normal?

Re: $65 Optus Wireless Broadband 200Gb

I'm on the same MB plan and mine varies from 5 to 50Mbps. I really couldn't care less how fast mine is providing I don't get timeouts or the dreaded buffering wheel. What signal do you get on the device?

I'm using the supplied Huawei B525 modem and it shows 4 bars (out of 5). Is that what you mean?

Yep that was my question as a low signal can have an impact on the speeds as well as congestion. Providing pages are loading and any streaming activity is not buffering I would not concern yourself about the speeds at all.
