Currently Speedtest.net is being used to gauge download and upload speed on the internet, but remember Speedtest.net is a public facing website, this means Gigler are not the only ISP that use it, other ISP's use the site and thus it can give false readings, if 2 connections are taking the test at similar times the result will be halved, so to get a better result try the connection at different times throughout the day this will give you a better indictation of what your actual speed will be.

Also bare in mind that you receive a 1Gig connection to the router but your computer can slow the connection down, this can be due to Anti-virus, Malware, applications that access the internet such as iTunes and Windows update these and many more can effect your download speed.

If you are using a Windows Vista/7 machine you can check the TCP setting by accessing the Resource Monitor, simply be running it from the Start menu. This will tell you what programs are accessing the internet from your PC or laptop

Wow. None of those speeds are even close to 1000Mbit. What's the issue?

If using a laptop, the wifi connection will not be gig speed what so ever. The only way you can get gig is to use a cable at the moment.

Im finding that the so called "fast" browsers like chrome and firefox are actually really really slow for me with this connection as they are still compressing information which is not needed to be compressed. IE10 on the other hand is ultra fast for me over my firefox browser.
Networking is like eating Yam Yams... It gets all hot and sticky in the summer.
