I’m looking to buy a Netgear Nighthawk but…

my cable provider is charter it starts 60 Mbps. Now I don’t have internet at my home but I use the neighbor wi-fi. There wifi I get 12 to 15 ping, download speed 25 Mbps, upload speed 6.00.

When I’m at my sister her cable provider is NewWave and I get 33 ping, download speed to 38 to 42, upload speed 5.00.

Can anyone help me out?
