Hey,

It seems there is a huge difference in local and international speeds.

This is my speedtest for local:

This is my speedtest for international:

This is without using any VPN, even with a VPN it is also slow internationally.

There is no other users on my network when doing the speedtest and no apps consuming bandwidth.

Please advise

Thanks

Hi,

Please can you run the below command as administrator in command prompt and then restart.

Code:
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal

If the issue persist we can do further troubleshooting.

What does that do?

Seems like a windows "feature"
The speedtests seem much better and twitch actually seems to run at full rez now without buffering on my PC, but wireless devices on 5g still seems to get the old result for speedtests. Is there a similar option on the router itself?

It's a windows feature that helps with loss but it's a problem in SA where the closest international server is 145ms or 160ms away which means it drastically reduces the speed. The same pc in the middle of France or US might not even know it's been enabled.

Your phone and other devices should not have the same issue.

I would suggest having a look at the wifi to see if that is not the cause of the slow internet.
