(I wasn’t sure whether or not to put this question under ‘Apple’ as it could be considered an iOS question.)

How do operating systems choose which WLAN / SSID to connect to when they have several available? Is it down to signal strength only ? What about the speed of the networks ? Say you have one that offers 300Mbps max and another that offer 150 mbps max? (Or we could consider current actual speeds at the particular signal strength available right now.)

I’m thinking about having a 20 MHz wide 2.4 GHz channel and a 40 MHz wide 5 GHz channel and am wondering what clients will do. This is instead of the current situation where there is a choice between 2.4 and 5 GHz channels that are both 40 MHz and so both 300 Mbps max at the current MIMO settings that are the same. In practice 2.4 GHz can be faster at certain times because of better penetration of (lightweight) internal walls.

I think the moral of the story is that unless you're lucky and everything aligns, you might well not get 900mbit / sec out of a 900mbit connection, but there is a very large chance that the issues are in your network or computer config, and not in the service.  Unfortunately many folk will never work out this sort of thing as tuning a gigabit level network is beyond the reach of many.

Fortunately that's still only one client though, so if you are a household full of people streaming or updating their games library, you'll still get the full benefit.

I find that with three WAN connections, quite often only two ever get loaded up at a time by say the games consoles.  But with a bit of tweaking to the policy routing, all three connections still get a good workout overall.

Its far less of an issue with a single WAN, already heard of people easily doing 900Mbit on Xbox Series downloads.  Steam, UPlay and Epic can easily max all three of my connections as it is.

I guess it's a cock-up of some sort at their end?

No, a cock up is when something out of the ordinary goes wrong.

In Plusnet's case this is pretty much business as usual.

Interesting, thanks for the replies.
As I said nothing has been taken from my account.
That's why I thought it strange.
