Please let me know the factors which govern the speed of internet. I know that traffic and capacity of the cable and servers are the only factor that governs the speed of internet.
My query refers to a specific case:
Suppose, I have DSL from service provider company A providing 1 Mbps speed plan. They provide me modem and provision the DSL line. Now, if I opt for 2 Mbps speed plan, they will provide me the plan without replacing the modem or making any changes in the line.
How can they make this possible?
1 case that I could think of off top of my head is that when they provide me the speed plan of 1 Mbps, they already provide me the modem and line whose capacity is more than 1 Mbps and somehow, they limit my DSL speed to be maximum 1 Mbps since I opted for that speed plan. Now, when I opted for 2 Mbps plan, they don't have to do anything. They just have to increase the limit to 2 Mbps from 1 Mbps.
Please let me know if I am thinking on correct line.
I kinda wonder that myself but not really sure how it's done by them. I had a question about mine but here is a link to test your speed, when I ran the test I was getting what I was paying for.
