In your case, besides getting a docis 3 modem (if yours isn’t) I think you might be having problems due to your low 50 mbps speed. I certainly could be wrong but it might be worth a try. Just my opinion.
Ok, thank you.

For cameras & ring doorbell, the download speed (50 Mbps) is largely irrelevant. It is your upload speed that matters - you are uploading data (video) rather than downloading.
Thanks for the explanation but internet isn't sold by the upload speed. What do you think an adequate upload speed would be? I know I could do a speed test to find out what I'm getting but not sure if what I'm getting is enough.

Around 50 MB/s sometimes higher - good enough for hd streaming.

A good question. It is so fast I have never thought about. Here is a speed test from today:
download: 82.1Mbps
upload: 28.2 Mbps


These numbers are for 5g.

More than one needs. My local network streams 12 security cameras HD 30fps for about 30Mbps. 5.0 Mbps is usually stated as the requirement for best HD streaming.

As with many things, performance depends a lot on usage. If you think 50 down is good, I mean more power to you but for me that would be absolute garbage. Today alone I had 100 gigs of game updates I needed to do, anywhere from 3-4 gigs to 24 gigs, so if you can’t pull 300-400 down it’s going to take absolutely forever. It’s bad enough Microsoft throttles during high usage periods, and even if you have a gig down you’ll rarely get it except maybe close from Apple while downloading a movie or something like that. If all you ever do is stream 1080p movies then slow Internet is fine, but streaming 4K or uploading (as my wife does) 10-30 gigs of photos for a client, or in my case downloading video files for work, it requires a lot more than 50 down. That would be an incredibly frustrating experience. So just consider what you’re using the Internet for and for some people, they really don’t need much, for others like us both working in digital media and any serious gamers, you need serious speeds.

I have read the terrible CenturyLink reviews so that fiber option does scare me a bit... but dang saving $100/month would be nice I admit. Do I need to? No, but who wants to waste $1,200/year?! I’m just worried it would be slower and less reliable despite the promised speeds. The unlimited bandwidth is appealing though.
