Here’s why your WiFi speeds are never as fast as advertised

The worst offender in your home network is the router. Last month Carnegie Mellon University’s Dr. Alex Hills told The Wall Street Journal that customers are only getting about 50% of the capacity that their routers promise, which slows even further if multiple people are on the network.
