      Help regarding my Upload speed

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 15638 kbps 864 kbps
      Line Attenuation 26 db 14 db
      Noise Margin 7 db 8 db

      When i run speed tests i get 13mb download speed and 720kbps upload

      Recently my upload has dropped not only in my actual speed i get but also what my line says i could get. It was as high as 1.1 upload on the sync, and i was getting around 830kbps for a week, when i asked the sky guy he said it would most likely set around 1mb upload and get about that on my line. This was during first week of getting connected on my new line. I realise it varys during this time.

      But as weeks gone by both upload speeds have dropped as i say. Why would this happen can i contact SKY to get it back to how it was. If the line can take 1.1 upload why is it now sitting at 864kbps(and not even getting that barely over 700kbps!).....

      Upload speed important for gaming.

      Ring Sky and tell them to uncap the upstream (if it isn't uncapped already) and lower INP.

      There's no more margin there for upstream
      on sky's 9db target margin for upstream

      Its odd that you say you used to get 1.1meg

      do a tracert www.sky.com and paste it here

      How do you what they're set to? Unless you've seen the actual line configuration you can't comment. It's always been 7 for up and down, and I can ask for confirmation from my old CST colleagues if required

      Re: Help regarding my Upload speed

      I know that its supposed to be 7 up
      but almost every modem stats i have seen its 9
      if its any lower its fluctuated after sync

      i have even had a nice cst tweak me in the past
      and he confirmed it was 7 but i still synced in at 9.5


      Take mine for example

      Upstream 1107591
      Downstream 18014483
      Elapsed Time 0 day 20 hr 38 min 41 sec
      SNR Margin(Upstream) 9.5 dB
      SNR Margin(Downstream) 13.95 dB

      though im still on dlm atm due to a new contract

      As said, it's 7dB target.

      My line as an example:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 2784 kbps 864 kbps
      Line Attenuation 61.5db 31.5db
      Noise Margin 6.9db 7.0db

      Re: Help regarding my Upload speed

      I've not worked for them since 2009, and I'm not even on Sky BB

      I'm not saying it doesn't look like upstream margins are higher, all I'm saying is the DLM engine never moves the SNRs. Only a manual configuration would cause it to change

      I think it must be down to router sync with the DSLAM/ISAM
