Is a trial upgrade of Full Fibre 900 possible ? (currently on FF 100)

We're really happy with Full Fibre 100 but have slight issues in getting good speeds at the far corners of our house and office areas as well as some coverage outside.

We've already had a BT mesh system but 3 discs didn't work - we got 5 or 6 discs talking to each other but unreliably, as they kept crashing and re-connecting out of sequence. We now have 3 Ubiquiti Alien routers as a solid mesh system, but the distances involved still mean some corners are getting around 5 to 10 Mbps when we'd ideally like 20 to 30 Mbps

The incoming feed is solid at 150 Mbps, we'd like to see what effect increasing this to 900 Mbps would have on the speeds of the wifi in our setup? If we can get better speeds in the house and office then we'd be happy with the increase in costs.

So would it be possible to allocate a trial period of FF 900 (for 24 hours?) 🙂

Increasing the speed of your incoming connection will have absolutely zero impact on your wifi speed. The 2 signals are totally independent.

thank you - some devices we have close to the mesh routers do seem to top out at around 110 / 115 Mbs some are Wifi 6 enabled - the wired devices get 145/150 Mbps - i accept there are overheads in the system from getting a 150Mbps service distributed on wifi.

Surely a FF 900 supply will see the wired devices increase in speed and the wifi devices go up too?

It depends if the problem is wifi speed or throughput, the 2 are not the same thing.

If the problem is pure wifi speed, increasing your line speed will have no effect whatsoever.

If the problem is due to throughput, then increasing the speed will help.

I suspect your problem is wifi speed, however.

If a wifi device operating in isolation doesn't achieve near to the line speed then it is not a throughput problem.
