      Painfully slow upload speeds

      Hello, i have recently been having problems with my upload speeds when streaming / uploading media files to a media server. On speedtest.net my current download speed is 14.43 Mbt/s and my upload is 1.03 mbt/s, But when uploading files to servers, it drops to 125kb/s. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

      128k is 1mbit

      e.g. you are getting the correct speed

      and this isnt a service its all users of sky

      e.g. not a sky run forum


      also what do you expect instant answers at midnight????

      Someone has "issues" and I don't mean with his connection!

      How rude! He obviously thinks that all the users of this voluntary run forum have nothing better to do all day but to sit here eagerly waiting to answer his questions within a few seconds of him posting!

      I can't speak for everyone else, but I'm often heading for or already in bed at 12.06am, when he first posted.

      As for the speed dropping to 125kb/s when you are uploading something - what else do you expect? A speed test is only going to try and compete with some legitimate usage. If the site only allows you to upload at a specific speed, then that is that site's issue, not Sky's.

      Of course one answer would be to get Fibre...

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      I don't think his attitude really deserved a answer ;-)
