      Download speed is good but upload is terrible!

      I was wondering if my speedsare normal. I normally get a Downstream speed of 7200kbps and sometimes upto 7900kbps. My downstream speed is always fixed on 448kbps. This doesnt seem a good speed and it never changes.

      I never feel like I am getting these speeds either but the speed that websites/downloads are at are still good enough for me. One thing i do alot is play on Xbox live and hosting matches is very poor, im guessing it's down to my Download speed. Is their anyway of tuning up my router for a faster up/down stream speed?

      One other question I have. When playing on Xbox live I never have any other devisec connected to my router, just the Xbox itself connected VIA ethernet Cable. I was wondering if all my connection is going to the Xbox or is some of it reserved for possible device connections.

      Thanks for the help in advance.

      thats standard for connect customers - it doesnt change and only BT could do something about it anyway as you're on their network

      not that helps you

      I think that is normal for most broadband packages not just Sky, Even Sky Max is only 768kb ish upstream

      At 7200 your connection for the x-box should be ok, we have between 3200 and 3800 download and 416 upload and playing/hosting x-box games online hasn't been a problem.

      Re: Download speed is good but upload is terrible!

      upload just sends map, player and stats info to the server as text, ur not actually hosting the game on ur connection. u need to look more into latency if ur experiencing problems, again change the MTU size.
      It doesn't get better than this band lol
