    Just a Tip

    My internet speed was 100 mbps, I have never had a glitch or buffer when streaming from Tidal. I called my IP because they have 300 mbps available, they said they will send me a new modem and I wouldn't get 300 until it was installed.

    I sat down last night just to listen to music and noticed my system was sounding really good, unusually so. I remembered contacting the internet company so did a speed test, it showed I was getting 205 mbps. For whatever reason the increase in internet speed gave me a nice improvement in sound quality. It was like an overall improvement, a higher resolution sound if you will.

    It's worth the boost if you aren't already getting your highest internet speed.

    Our cable provider has 300mpbs for its basic. But I upgraded to 1GB on one of their upgrade specials ( trying it for a year) No delays on anything and they also just finished installing FTTH in my area but its not ready yet.

    That's great that you are getting a SQ improvement. Made the upgrade worth it!

    We upgraded from a maxed-out AT&T 25mbs to someone else at ~500mb/s and are very pleased with all around usability on everything connected.

    I wasn't streaming prior to that so I can't compare SQ.

    So you went from 100 to 200 with the same modem, and you'll get 300 when they upgrade your modem. Did I understand that correctly?
