Wi-Fi speed connection

Question

Hello

I have recently upgraded my broadband to 1 Gigabit service.

Now I know t ha the speed will vary by device and specs so i would not expect the tv to obtain speeds like a mobile phone. 

My problem is that the tv does drop the speed down to a ridiculous 1 mbps on Netflix.. it does run uhd/4k content from 7 to 15 mbps. I've run speed tests on s7 edge and s9 through out the house and great speeds at approx 310 mbps download and upload speeds at similar numbers. Funny enough the speed in my kitchen was faster than standing beside the modem in the hall. 

There is no software update due on the tv . So I am sure it's a tv issue but I'm not in anyway an expert to not need help with this.

Is there anything I can do myself to fix the problem and I mean without ringing provider tech support yet. 

I'm thinking cable connection but I don't think that should be done on a 1Gig service I would try that option immediately if i was still on NGB service with 17 mbps being considered very Good speed. 

So apologies for the length of the question and mini rant but itis fueled by some wine and beers.

Any info  appreciated or a fix to the issue.

TIA

I would try a cable to get a better connection.

There is no problem using that on a 1 Gig service. I don't think the TV has a 1 Gb ethernet port so it automatic changes to 100 Mbits. 

I just tried fast.com on my LG tv, iIt's on a 100 Mbit connection and I get 15 Mbit/s.

    • Question: gigabit ethernet on smart TV

      Hello, Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX.

    • Ridiculous "fireworks" showing on top off apps like Spotify

      When are we finally getting the option to turn off the ridiculous "fireworks" screensaver? I didn't spend thousands on a new TV to watch this screen every 2 minutes, and especially not when I am playing Spotify songs and can't see what songs are up next or even follow lyrics! It's one thing to build features to prevent build-in, but another if they make using the TV properly a problem. Give us the ability to choose for ourselves if we want this protection or not, and don't force our hands p
