why upload speed is dismal at 40kbps
« on: September 08, 2017, 05:30:57 am »
Hi, There is no problem in modem connection and internet access. But the upload speed tested in , i found the upload stream speed is dismal at 40 kbps. Does any settings in modem would improve this? Or it is service provider choice for all users of the broadband. The download speed is quite ok.
I do not want to invest on vdsl. Is there any fix and please cause for this slow upload speed. pl
The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".

What has it been like in previous speed tests or is this the first time you have noticed it.

Either way, contact your ISP about it.

I'm on a 38Mbps VDSL package and initially my upload speed was 2Mbps but they have increased that to about 10Mbps of which I get ~9.6Mbps so your ISP may be able to increase it, but at best it may only be about 10% of your download speed on ADSL.
