      Sky Max; Slooow upload speeds, suddenly

      Connection Speed 9071 kbps 764 kbps
      Line Attenuation 40.5 db 23.8 db
      Noise Margin 9.1 db 12.5 db

      I noticed yesterday, while uploading some pictures, that my upload speeds are VERY slow now (HTTP and FTP).

      I used to get the full 764 kbps upload speed (approx) most of the time. But now, I am getting very unreliable uploading, with upload speed around 80 kbps -- one-tenth of what I should be getting.

      Download speeds are still good; around 8 Mbps average throughput.

      Is there something wrong with the network?

      Thanks

      Oh man i love you!!

      ive had the same since yesterday ,, My upload is around the 200-300 mark and normally 660 ish solid.

      Only been 200-300 since yesterday, i am too on max and my exchange is sidcup.

      EDIT my download is rock solid still 14-15mpbs but no matter how many router resets etc since last night the upload stays 200-300 and takes ages to get up to 200-300.

      selfishly i hope loads are having this trouble then we know there is a problem affecting the upload on max.

      If I try your "speedtest.net" with Rome, Moscow, Dublin & London servers, I get 600 kbps upload speed -- just what I pay for. And if I try broadsystem (?) in Florida, I also get pretty good upload speed; 600 kbps.

      However, MANY other speed testers show me at 70 - 80 kbps maximum.

      Perhaps there's a fault on the line somewhere?

      I just rebooted my modem -- it hasn't been rebooted in over a week now.

      AND... I am getting much better throughput for all testers.

      Perhaps Sky had me on a bad internal server or some such?
