Updating modem speed
Internet companies actually charge you an additional fee to rent their equipment.
Most users get a similar result to their "favourite" speed test or the ISP "recommended" speed test.
If you repeatably get a lower result look more carefully at your browser and your PC. Install a clean, current, browser (Firefox or Chrome) and try it with that before concluding anything.

The Standby light turns off, and the DS and US lights stop blinking and return to solid.
If you have no AC power to the unit, the MTA stays in standby mode until power is restored.
By the end of 2012, the Korean Communications Commission intends to increase Wi Bro broadband connection speeds to 10Mbit/s, around ten times the current Wi Bro adopts TDD for duplexing, OFDMA for multiple access and 8.75/10.00 MHz as a channel bandwidth.
Wi Bro was devised to overcome the data rate limitation of mobile phones (for example CDMA 1x) and to add mobility to broadband Internet access (for example ADSL or Wireless LAN).
In February 2002, the Korean government allocated 100 MHz of electromagnetic spectrum in the 2.3–2.4 GHz band, and in late 2004 Wi Bro Phase 1 was standardized by the TTA of Korea and in late 2005 ITU reflected Wi Bro as IEEE 802.16e (mobile Wi MAX).
Two South Korean Telcom (KT, SKT) launched commercial service in June 2006, and the tariff is around US.
There is an abundance of factors that must be taken into consideration.
