I just got this one:

It's pretty good, I guess, but I'm really, really disappointed in the
speeds I get in this building with NTT Flets, theoretical maximum speed
of 100 Mbps. It's a 14 floor マンション with 5 apartments on each floor. At
busy times, I get between 3 and 5 Mbps down, and 50 Mbps up. When it's
not busy, I can get between 30 and 50 Mbps down and 85 up. I guess it's
not the router's fault, but it's hard to evaluate the router and ignore
the confounding of the internet speed in the building.
