Great to see speeds approaching 1Gbps are becoming more normal these days -- although in a lot of cases uploads still seem to be really slow. I'd expect to see uploads at least being 90% the speed of download speeds -- especially if you want to run any type of small Internet server.
The difference is in the technology used. When the ISP is using copper because of a limited bandwidth they have to offer a fast download paired with slow upload. When the ISP is using fiber the download and upload speeds can be about the same.

I have Comcast's Gigabyte Extra with 1200Mbps down & 35Mbps up. Comcast uses copper.

My new laptop has 802.11ax WiFi. Its wireless speed (shown below) is about 90% of the speed of a wired Ethernet connection.

Funny thing about internet speed. It is only as fast as the servers that pass the info to the user. I could have 1TB service yet still get buffering/loading issues or download speeds can suck etc. Obviously having dial up or say 25mb service will produce turtle speeds all around but higher speed doesnt necessarily mean just that speed. I do have 1TB service and it can still suck. Maybe Fiber is different but IDK.

Always true -- doesn't matter how much water is in the Atlantic Ocean if you can only access the water supply through a thimble or a 5 litre watering can.

Decent web sites are quite fast though = so are most streaming sites -- for 4and 8K UHD you need a decent speed or buffering will occur. If you are on a torrent site with only 1 slow seeder it can take a long time to get your file even if you have a 1 Tbps connection.

For those with decent Wifi (802.11ax) ensure it works at FULL and not HALF duplex. Change the settings in the NIC adapter properties.

Cheers

As far as I know WiFi always works at half duplex. I have three laptops. None of them even have a duplex setting for their WiFi adapters.

Fast WiFi is also beneficial if you have a local network. My new laptop has 802.11ax while the old one had 802.11ac. The new laptop copies files noticeably faster to another computer via WiFi when the other computer is connected with Ethernet. This is especially beneficial when my new laptop is doing its daily or weekly backups. It completes those in much less time than my old laptop.

Most computers today with an Ethernet port are rated 1Gbps. Even if you don't have fast Internet speeds having a router that has 1Gbps ports helps your local network speeds.
