    Slow uploads? What do they mean?

    This is a discussion on Slow uploads? What do they mean? within the Sky Broadband help forums, part of the Sky Broadband help and support category; I'm not sure about this, but when you increase the download speed you need the upload increased so you get ...

      I'm not sure about this, but when you increase the download speed you need the upload increased so you get a smooth woking system. If you cap one and not the other it can cause problems (the internet is 2 way traffic!!!)

      So if you have had your upload speed capped and you are synching at 12 MB or more for the download - this will have an impact and your download speed will drop in real life situations.

      I find this all very worrying and not what was expected or advertised. It is a disgrace - still only another 9 months to go - things will only get worse i'm sure.

      But since the maximum MAX upload rate is 800 odd, I don't think this is correct.

      And since your router is sync'ing at this speed near enough anyway I am not sure what your problem is ??

      Can you prove without a doubt that you're being capped ??

      And you attenuation doesn't exactly point to "high speeds" either.

      RE:Can you prove without a doubt that you're being capped ??

      Well i've done speed test for the last 3 months each day and they have always been about 650 - the last 4 days they have been erratic and below 300

      RE:And you attenuation doesn't exactly point to "high speeds" either.
      Same values for the last 3 months (see above) so that has nothing to do with it.

      Would it be for stability issues? On those that cannot get ADSL2?
      No, Dont think so?

      No but all the others are! You have a working as advertised product, the others dont. They should all be getting 768 up not 416, hence the point of this thread.

      Cool! @Ged! Maybe its a ROUTER issue, Just like with the attenuation at 15.5db?

      Coming to think of it? Didnt someone post with another router?

      It has to be some sort of profile or management that has been issued wrong, or to improve stability.
