Hey Spaceghost,

QQ: What USB dongle do you use?
Can't tell for the Spaceghost, but I used TRENDnet TUC-ET5G and it lets you get close to 5Gbit/s top speed. Nowhere near that, of course, if you test with any international server, not to mention transatlantic bottleneck in lower hundreds and tens of Mbit/s.

That speed is isnt particularly impressive on a 10Gbit line (although the ping is ok) you're only getting 1/30th of the total bandwidth - did you use wifi or cable?
10GBit Wifi is just disingenuous marketingfluffspeak for 99.9999% of people... you will always be limited by the speed of your networking equipment a) on your router and b) on the endpoint. If both align at the highest speeds then you will get max speeds, if one of them is mismatched then you will get the speed of the slowest.

Gigabit ethernet speeds for wired connections are 1GBit/s which translates to around 78Mb/s in ideal conditions.

Wifi6 (AX) speeds are also max 1Gbit/s and you have to be very close to the router to achieve those speeds. In most instances it will be 0.5-0.75Mbit/s.

To achieve 10Gbit speeds you would need 10GBit networking equipment on the router AND the endpoints and only a tiny fraction of people have that. Due to network congestion etc I doubt you would get those theoretical speeds even if you did have 10GBit hardware. Hpwever, who knows, I haven't seen any detailed figures.

if you want the max speeds you can get on 10GB fibre you need:

You would then be in 10GB heaven. 10GB will of course come down in price, but it will be slow.

Hey Spaceghost,

This one mate but you can get rebadged similar ones from Amazon.de as well. For the cost I think its a great bang for buck vs 200 CHF for a 10Gbit one.
