    I have a year old macbook pro and the wireless or hardwire speed shows between 6-7 mbps download speed, the mac sitting next to it a 2004 PPC with a wireless card in it shows 13-14 on download speed. No one else in the house is on wireless. What can be slowing me down on the MBP?
    Speedtest have been done on my local provider, Speakeasy speed test and Speedtest.net. Anyone have a idea what could be holding me down on speed of machine.

    I would hardwire directly to your modem and bypass the router first. What internet speed do you pay for?

    On my late 2013 rMBP i'm 30 up 30 down wirelessly.
